What is Women’s Golf Day?2021-01-06T11:08:02-05:00

Women’s Golf Day is a collaborative effort by a dedicated team, golf management companies, retailers, and golf organizations and governing bodies all working together to Engage, Empower and Support girls and women through golf. Since 2016, WGD has been engaging participants from around the globe irrespective of race, religion, language, ethnicity, or geography and continues to see increase year after year. WGD encourages each location to have a charitable component. WGD has a global impact from collective grass roots local events.
The one-day, four-hour event, typically held the first Tuesday in June each year. Women’s Golf Day offers a simple and accessible platform from which players can build or deepen a foundation interest in golf. WGD supports the creation of a network to support the continuation of golf no matter what skill level.

What Kind of Event Should I Hold for Women’s Golf Day?2021-01-06T11:11:15-05:00

The format of your Women’s Golf Day event should follow the one-day, four-hour experience. The first two hours offer two hours of lessons or play 9 holes. The second half is two hours of socializing that you can customize to your audience. The location decides if the event is public or private and if you charge a fee or not. We do ask that you keep you your location page details up to date so that your guests know what to expect.

The idea on this day is to keep the focus of the day to short format, fun, light, inclusive and welcoming, a celebration.  The day should be open to skilled players and those new to the game.  The format for WGD was developed after researching and reviewing a number of global golf studies and testing the concept at locations.  Research showed engagement was highest for a four-hour experience that offered a combination of equal parts golf and socializing.

GOLF COURSE FORMAT

First Two Hours – Golfing – Lessons or 9 Hole Play
(Suggested Time: 4-6pm for working women or during the day for moms or retired etc..)

Can I Hold My Women’s Golf Day on a Different Date?2021-01-06T11:14:36-05:00

Originally, the first Tuesday of June was selected to not compete with attention for professional tournaments, not compete with charity events that are usually held on Mondays, additionally many ladies’ leagues are already on Tuesday.  All of this also enables the golf industry and governing bodies to assist in getting behind and helping to grow this global event. We encourage locations to pick a time of day that will work for their participants and region. For working women later in the day and for others morning is best.

Locations who cannot participate on the official Women’s Golf Day, (typically the first Tuesday in June each year), can host their event the Friday, Saturday Sunday or Monday prior to Women’s Golf Day.  While we put most of our support behind the planned event on the first Tuesday in June, we want as many women to have access to the world of golf as possible.  If your location is unable to hold their event on the first Tuesday, please move the event as needed within the 4 days prior to our worldwide celebration.

Locations must register with us to hold an official Women’s Golf Day event or use our trademarked materials.  We encourage locations to share the experience on the day they host the event as well as on the Tuesday with the rest of the world. By becoming a member and a listed location, you can put your date in your custom listing, and still have access to all of our media kit materials. Featured locations will also receive support from our team to make your Women’s Golf Day the best it can be!
