Women and girls will speak out about why they love golf and what they get from the sport when a special awareness week is held across Great Britain & Ireland later this month.

Women and Girls’ Golf Week is the inspiration of England Golf and will take place from 30 July – 5 August.

It has the support of Scottish Golf, Wales Golf and the Irish Ladies Golf Union and is designed to unite the golf industry behind the aim of growing the women and girls’ game.

The organisations will tell the stories of women and girls who are involved in many different ways in golf. The aim is to create noise across their social media channels and websites, with women and girl golfers everywhere invited to join the conversation using the #WhyIGolf

Clubs will also be able to get involved by promoting participation activities they are running for women and girls, such as Get into Golf & Golf4Girls4Life.

The week has been timed to coincide with the buzz created by the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes (2 – 5 August), where an all-female group of PGA professionals will be offering free taster lessons to beginners.
