WGD Focus on Japan Market

London, England: Growing female participation in Japan is one of the primary goals of the Women’s Golf Day (WGD) 2024.

According to organisers, more than 100 golf courses and eight driving ranges in Japan have registered to hold events this year. 

WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet said: “We have been working with the Japan Golf Association (JGA) and our Ambassador Mitsuru since 2022.

“I visited Tokyo and Kyoto in November and spent time with the JGA, some of the courses, industry leaders and MCO Accordia and it was very encouraging to witness first-hand the increasing interest from the industry as well as Japanese women.

“This market is one we have focused our energies on and really want to help them grow female participation.”

WGD 2024 gets underway on May 28 with the annual WGD Palooza, a digital day calling for golfers to ‘Get Social – On and Off the Course’. 

Uniting people through golf is fundamental to the ethos of WGD, prompting the establishment of this digital day in 2020, providing insights, entertainment, and celebrations of all things golf from around the globe.

In 2023, WGD said its social media performance included 397,143 engagements, a reach of 92,179,471 and 194,920,049 impressions.

This year WGD Palooza will be aired across the @womensgolfday social media channels. The content will have the same fun and entertaining videos and giveaways from WGD Partners and WGD itself.

To maximise reach and accessibility it will sit permanently on the WGD YouTube and all social channels. For more details visit
