The PGA and England Golf are supporting #ThisGirlGolfs as part of their ‘Raising Our Game’ strategy. Committed to increasing the number of people that play golf regularly and reversing the decline of club members, England Golf recognise that Women and Girls are key to this success.
David Joy, CEO of England Golf commented, “We are aware, like many other sports, golf faces some issues, there are significant trends in declining participation at all levels that we can’t ignore. With the help of #ThisGirlGolfs campaign, we hope to work together with the golfing community to encourage more women and girls into the sport and enjoy the benefits the game can give.”
Sandy Jones (pictured), CEO of The PGA added, “Golf is actually a very accessible, welcoming and enjoyable environment and we want to get that message across to women who may not have considered golf as an option. This is a great opportunity to both raise the profile of golf, break down myths and misconceptions and to actively encourage women of all ages to see golf as a realistic choice – whether that is for personal, professional, business or social reasons.”
