Women and Girls’ Golf Week is back

England Golf's campaign to highlight the successes of women and girls in golf is returning for its third year
 

England Golf will be showcasing inspiring, innovative and energetic females who help drive the game in the country, and beyond, as Women and Girls’ Golf Week returns.

The celebratory week starts on Monday, coincides with the staging of the AIG Women’s Open, and will run until Sunday. The online campaign highlights the successes of women and girls in many different roles in golf and challenges negative perceptions and myths around the game.

Women and girls are being encouraged to get involved by sharing their personal stories throughout the week on social media channels with the tagline #WhyIGolf.

Daily campaign themes will look at careers, volunteers, competition, celebrating role models while revealing first-time stories of how people got into the sport and how it has changed their lives.

Among those who will tell their stories includes the R&A’s Jackie Davidson, Solheim Cup and Women’s Open winner Georgia Hall and regular players who have overcome the odds, or made huge life achievements, thanks to golf.

Wales Golf will also be getting in on the act and posting their stories with the shared intention of growing the game.

Lauren Spray, England Golf’s Women and Girls manager, said: “We’re now in our third year and once again the appetite among women and girls to get involved, share stories or simply follow us on social media has been fantastic.

“We’re very excited about the week ahead with so many brilliant stories to be told and fun to be had as we celebrate all that is good about the women and girls involved at all levels of the game.”
