Women’s Golf Day launches multi-lingual website

12.18pm 17th February 2021 - Growing the Game

In response to the continued growth of its global network, Women’s Golf Day is unveiling three new language versions of its website to reflect the diverse nature of the WGD community and WGD’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.  

The site is now available in French, Spanish and Japanese – the primary languages spoken by its users – and foreign language content will be also integrated into WGD’s social media activity in preparation for the June 1, 2021 event day. 

The new functionality will enable more locations and women to participate in the global event. Women’s Golf Day Sponsors including Callaway, Titleist and FootJoy are focussed on expanding their commitment to making the game more accessible for women.

Elisa Gaudet, founder of Women’s Golf Day, said: “We are now in our sixth year and our community reaches all corners of the globe.  Over 20% of our Facebook followers are French speakers, we have events on every continent and this year launched in Japan with our first course registered location, Hirao Country Club in Toyokawa, thus boosting our presence in Asia. It is the first step in our efforts to ensure that golfers around the world have the best WGD experience.”

Olivier Denis-Massé, Directeur Délégué of the Federation Français de Golfe, hopes that the new language version will encourage more venues to sign up for the event. He commented: “The French Golf Federation is happy to support Women’s Golf Day in 2021. It is a terrific event for women in the golfing calendar. Growing the number of women who play golf is important for the future of the sport. Women’s Golf Day events can help to attract new women golfers, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for existing ones to help and guide their friends in their first steps in golf.”

On June 1, women and venues around the world will – where Covid restrictions allow – take to the fairways to celebrate Women’s Golf Day.  Location registration is now open and anyone signing up using the code ‘WGD2021‘ before February 28 will enjoy a special savings offer.
