Singapore: Growing women’s golf in Asia will be the focus of The R&A Women in Golf Forum next week.

Staged by The R&A during the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open, the Forum will take place at Singapore’s Tanah Merah Golf Club on December 9.
The R&A Women in Golf Forum brings together industry leaders to explore the initiatives in place to encourage more women and girls into playing golf and enjoying successful careers in the sport.
Highlights of the forum will include:

  • Pak Se-ri, a World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee, discussing her journey in golf.
  • Jackie Davidson, Director – Golf Development at The R&A discussing The R&A Women in Golf Charter.
  • Karen Proctor, Director of Sales APAC, Textron Specialized Vehicles and Secretary of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, discussing her 20-year career in the golf industry.
  • Yuko Tashiro, CEO of Accordia Golf, discussing leadership in the golf industry.
  • Hana-Rae Seifert, General Manager of NZ Golf, discussing best practice in participation initiatives. 

Growing Women’s Golf in Asia will cover the importance of increasing female participation and the impact of diverse leadership for an inclusive culture within sport.

The R&A’s Davidson said: “We are delighted to be hosting The R&A Women in Golf Forum in Asia for the first time. The Asia-Pacific region is a powerhouse in women’s professional golf, producing more and more champions at the highest level of the game. 

“But for golf to be thriving 50 years from now we would like to see even more women participating in recreational golf and enjoying successful careers within the golf industry. 

“Through the Forum we hope to inspire the future leaders of the sport and demonstrate what is possible within golf.”
The forum aims to engage and inspire attendees to effect industry change for better gender balance, improve perceptions and increase participation, while also providing an opportunity to create a more inclusive and representative industry.

The R&A Women in Golf Forum is endorsed by the Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation and the Asia Golf Leaders Forum.
