The Women in Golf Awards is back for 2023, for what promises to be a major event for the golf industry.  The 2023 awards will take place at Walton Heath Golf Club, host club of the AIG Women’s Open, on the evening of Tuesday 8th August just before the event tees off on the Thursday.

“We are incredibly excited to bring the awards to Walton Heath Golf Club during the week of the Women’s Open,” commented Nicole Wheatley co-founder of the Women in Golf Awards.  “It’s a fitting location to recognise the women, brands and places making a difference in the world of golf, alongside the very best players in the world.  The awards will be a marvellous celebration of all sectors of the sport and is a fantastic opportunity for women, and men, to come together to recognise the wonderful work that goes on every day in golf.”

There will be a total of ten awards presented on the night.  In a change from the inaugural event, men will be invited to attend in a move designed to connect the women who are rising stars of the industry with the mostly male decision makers.  Similarly undergraduates and women who may consider a future career in golf will be amongst guests invited to attend as a way of showcasing the diverse jobs opportunities available in the industry.

Alex Woodward CEO of Walton Heath Golf Club added, “Walton Heath has made a commitment to ensure that our hosting of the 2023 AIG Women’s Open is greater than the four days of the championship.  In our delivery of this commitment, we have instigated and supported a number of initiatives to promote and elevate the role of women working in the golf industry.  In hosting the “The Women in Golf Awards” this year it is the perfect addition to what has already been an incredible series of events, bringing together women from across the industry at an event which already highlights excellence in women’s sport.  We truly believe the AIG Women’s Open is the perfect event for all the women in the industry to come together once a year and are excited to see the winners on the night.”
