Women’s Golf Week
Women's Golf Week Participation Nearly Doubles in 2007.
The total number of women participating in this summer’s American Express Women’s Golf Week presented by Golf For Women magazine increased 80% over 2006, far exceeding expectations. During the week of June 2-9, 34,200 women took advantage of complimentary golf instruction at more than 1,300 facilities across the country, compared to a total of 19,000 in 2006.
"We are thrilled with the number of women who participated in the 2007 event," said Anne Lyndrup, NGCOA’s director of player development. "And we are thankful to the host courses that worked hard to provide these women an opportunity to get involved in the game.”
During the event, which is aimed at increasing the participation of women in golf, host facilities offered complimentary golf instruction to women 14 years of age and older. Host facilities also offered a variety of other activities, including networking receptions, golf rules and etiquette seminars, equipment demonstrations, golf apparel fashion shows, luncheons, playing experiences and contests. Professional Golf Association (LPGA) members Laura Diaz and Suzy Whaley, who is also a PGA Professional, served as spokespersons for the 2007 event.
Women’s Golf Week is a grass roots player development program lead by the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA), LPGA, National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA), and PGA of America. It is part of the Play Golf America campaign, which includes the golf industry’s premier search engine for accessing information on player development programs for adults, women and families nationwide.
Next year’s event will be held the entire month of June.
