Women’s Golf Day (WGD), the hugely popular global celebration of women and girls in golf, is returning for 2018. With the support of golfers across the globe it is set to be the most successful event ever. This year WGD is calling on male and female golfers worldwide to encourage the venues where they play to get involved, host an event and share the game we all love.
WGD is a one day event that uses a combination of golf and socialising to introduce women and girls to the game of golf and encourages existing golfers to tee it up in a fun and highly inclusive environment. The 2018 event, which will take place on June 5th, was launched at a press conference at the PGA Show in Orlando by Annika Sörenstam and aims to engage more women and girls in the game than ever before.
Since the inaugural WGD in 2016, the event has grown exponentially from 485 locations in 28 countries to 711 locations in 46 countries last year. 2017 also saw WGD’s primary hashtag #WomensGolfDay receive more than 15 million global impressions to nearly 10 million users across Twitter and Instagram.
“Women love to share their interests with their friends and family which is why we are encouraging existing golfers to encourage their Clubs to get involved. The feedback we receive from participating facilities is really positive because Women’s Golf Day gives them the tools to reach potential new female golfers in a really effective way,” explains WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet.
Golf courses and facilities signing up for the 2018 event before 31st March will be entitled to an early bird offer of $79.00. All participating venues will have a dedicated event webpage on the WGD website where they can manage and promote their event. In addition they will have access to specially designed marketing material, banners and posters to help promote the event.
"In my 37 years in the golf industry, I have seen very few initiatives so effectively generate interest and enthusiasm among women and girls as Women’s Golf Day has these past two years,” says Steve Mona, CEO of the World Golf Foundation. “It has rapidly become a global movement, where women are coming together, not only to take up our sport, but to network and enjoy the social benefits associated with our game.”
WGD looks forward to welcoming even more golf clubs and facilities to celebrate women and girls’ golf and make 2018 the best yet! Come and join us!
