Upswing in Vietnam’s Female Golf Population

Hanoi, Vietnam: One of the most influential figures in Vietnam’s golfing industry has predicted a steady rise in the number of female players in the country.

According to Madame Nguyen Thi Nga, Founder of the BRG Group, one of the leading private multi-sector economic groups in Vietnam, increased promotion of the sport will continue to lead to an upswing in the playing population.

“From my perspective, as a businesswoman and also a golfer, I think it is necessary to promote the game so that more women can shine with this sport,” said Madame Nga, a pioneer and inspiration to women around the region.

Speaking in the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF) series about Women in Sports, Madame Nga added: “Women and golf are both objectives of complete beauty. The image of a beautiful woman making a swing on the golf course is a wonderful combination of beauty in nature, the boundless creativity of talented golf course designers, and the dynamic and modern beauty of women.

“We have seen a growing number of women playing golf since the sport blossomed in Western countries, spread to Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea, and now Vietnam.

“According to statistics, the number of female golfers has accounted for about 10% and is growing steadily year by year, showing that the love and passion for this sport is growing in the Vietnamese women’s community.

“We can see a growing trend of women’s golf in countries in the region. In South Korea, professional female golfers are celebrated as big stars, even more famous than professional male golfers.

“This has encouraged young South Korean girls to choose this sport. That is why their female golfers have been at the top of the ranking lists in recent professional tournaments.”

In Vietnam in recent years, participants have become more and more diversified with many singers, musicians, beauty queens, models, and actors taking part.

Madame Nga said: “This positively inspires the young generation, especially females. I believe that soon we will see the same number of women as men on golf courses in Vietnam.”
