The Focus is Female

January 30th, 2015

Ever since just before Christmas, when we reported on the Syngenta Report on How to Grow Women’s Golf, our Growing the Game News has been full of similar stories. They range from a local initiative to Grow Girls Golf in Glossop through last week’s report about an initiative by SMS INC and ‘Women & Golf’ magazine to this morning’s report that the World Golf Foundation (no less) has launched a new website called ‘GolfForHer’

All this is happening at a time when it is rumoured that some traditional ‘men-only’ members clubs are reviewing their policies. I am looking forward to learning the names of the new lady members of The R&A. Hopefully all this positive news will also help to Grow the Game.
