(RESTON, VA) Women on Course – America’s premier networking organization that introduces like-minded women to one another through golf and its amazing lifestyle – is celebrating Women’s Golf Month by hosting “Clinics Across America” to encourage and increase female participation in the game.
On Tuesday evenings in June, highly entertaining and educational clinics teach basic fundamentals and sharpen skills of female golfers in Chicago, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego and other major markets. For $10, participants receive 60 minutes of professional instruction in a fun and supportive environment, range balls and glass of wine (age appropriate).
Starting times vary by course; to register for a clinic near you: www.womensgolfmonth.com, 703.940.3511.
“We are thrilled to provide women nationwide with the opportunity to learn this incredible game,” says Kimberly Cayce, Chief Operating Officer of Women on Course. “Initiatives like Women’s Golf Month encourage women to take up golf, increase visibility and awareness for women golfers and send a message across the industry that women matter.”
Last year, women played 5.3 million golf rounds (21.5%) and are among the game’s largest growing demographics. With females representing 36% of all beginners and 40% of latent demand (interested non-golfers), Women on Course is introducing to and retaining tens of thousands of women in golf.
“Now more than ever, women are talking about and following golf like never before,” says Donna Hoffman, President and Founder of Women on Course. “We proudly contribute to golf’s popularity by constantly developing innovative ways to engage women and get them hooked.”
Women on Course’s unique approach of shifting focus away from score and competition has resonated across America, helping boost memberships by 200% in 2014. More than 2,000 annual golf and non-golf events serve nearly 20,000 women to improve golf skills and form lasting personal and business relationships.
