More Girls Are Golfing

July 26th, 2016

According to new data from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales there has been significant progress in attracting more women to play the game. Over the last decade, females have made up only approximately 14% of golf club membership in Great Britain & Ireland, way below other European countries such as Germany, Austria and Sweden.

In recent years all of the amateur golf bodies in GB&I have put a renewed focus on attracting more women and girls to play and it is good to be able to report a return from these efforts.

This week’s Ricoh Women’s British Open is being shown on BBC Television so there is every prospect that the momentum will continue.
