Keeping the Pledge

August 14th, 2015

It was a pleasure to be part of this week’s well-attended Women and Girls’ Conference, called to support England Golf’s drive to get more women and girls playing the game. The organisation was excellent, the presentations informative and entertaining, the audience-participation constructive, and the conference takeaway materials likely to be of long-term and practical value.

Every person attending the Conference was invited to make a pledge to support the campaign. My undertaking was to give maximum viewing opportunities for the video #ThisGirlGolfs so here’s another one.There will be more to follow (I promise!).
