Women and Girls in Golf is back for 2021!

What’s it all about?

Women and Girls in Golf Week is an online campaign promoting female participation at all levels and challenging negative perceptions about the game.

This year’s campaign runs from 16-22 August and is once again timed to coincide with the staging of the AIG Women’s Open at Carnoustie Golf Links when the eyes of the world are firmly focused on the women’s game.

The week aims to unite the golf industry and celebrate the successes of women and girls both on and off the course.

Here is a sneak peak to some of this year’s campaign:

There are seven themes for the week, one for each day of the campaign, and these cover all areas of the game and the golf industry:

Monday 16 August: Careers

Introducing inspiring women who are blazing a trail in the golf industry.

Tuesday 17 August: Volunteering

A chance for everyone to shout about those unsung volunteers who are key to the game’s success.

Wednesday 18 August: Health and wellbeing

Engaging conversations with women who have found golf to be a transformative experience for mental and/or physical health reasons.

Thursday 19 August: Competing

A chance to hear from those who love the buzz of competition.

Friday 20 August: Role models

Taking a leaf from the many women who inspire by their actions not only at the top of the game, but also at grassroots level.

Saturday 21 August: Newbies

Focusing on those who are new to the game – and who now couldn’t live without it.

Sunday 22 August: Join the club

A rallying call for those on the outside to come and join the golfing party!
