Women’s Golf Day is aimed at engaging, empowering, and supporting female golfers through businesses, such as public, semi-private, and private golf courses; golf stores; driving ranges; and mini golf/putt-putt facilities. The format for Women’s Golf Day events held at traditional golf courses generally includes two hours of lessons or two hours of play, plus two hours of socializing and networking, aimed at striking up conversations about the issues that affect female golfers.

The goal of the four-hour experience is to allow a simple and accessible platform to build a foundation for the game of golf, and to create a network to support the continuation of golf no matter each participant’s skill level or interest. As part of Women’s Golf Day’s mission, players and host courses are encouraged to engage in an online conversation leading up to the worldwide event and throughout the day using #WomensGolfDay.

In total, there are 689 locations in 46 countries registered to host over 29,000 participants. Find an event near you and register at womensgolfday.com
