The online and digital campaign aimed at celebrating female successes on and off the course, shares inspiring and positive stories involving females and their participation at all levels of the game.
Once again, the campaign coincides with the staging of the AIG Women’s Open, held this year at Muirfield in Scotland, where the focus of the world’s media attention is on the female game.
A mix of professional golfers, celebrities, golf insiders and everyday club players will join us to tell their stories around the hashtag #WhyIGolf.
Each day of the campaign focuses on a different theme to showcase the wide variety of ways women and girls of all ages can get into golf.
This year’s campaign themes will be:
|Monday 1 August: Careers
Introducing inspiring women who are blazing a trail in the golf industry.
|Tuesday 2 August: Volunteering
A chance for everyone to shout about those unsung volunteers who are key to the game’s success.
|Wednesday 3 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 4 August: Competing
A chance to hear from those who love the buzz of competition.
|Friday 5 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 6 August: Newbies
Focusing on those who are new to the game – and who now couldn’t live without it.
|Sunday 7 August: Join the club
A rallying call for those on the outside to come and join the golfing party!
