Booklet backs ELGA strategy of Driving Women’s Golf



A new advice brochure for golf clubs has been produced to back ELGA’s strategy of “Driving Women’s Golf”.

The strategy aims to increase the number of women and girls playing golf and the booklet is packed with advice and guidance for clubs on how to recruit and retain them.

The brochure, Women and Girls’ Golf, has been produced by the joint development team of ELGA and the English Golf Union. It is supported by more information on the ELGA website - www.englishladiesgolf.org/getintogolf - where fact sheets and further guidance can be accessed and downloaded.

Recent statistics from the EGU/ELGA 2006 Golf Club Membership Questionnaire showed that 85 per cent of golf clubs have vacancies for female members of all ages and at least 70 per cent are actively seeking more women and girls.

Pauline Perla, ELGA chief executive officer, said: “There has never been a better time for women and girls to get into golf, with clubs actively looking for female members. But we must all be as proactive as possible to make sure these opportunities are promoted. We hope that these latest resources will provide greater support to golf clubs and ultimately strengthen women and girls golf in England”.

All affiliated golf clubs and counties have been sent copies of the Women & Girls’ Golf brochure and more copies are available from the EGU/ELGA golf development team.

“Driving Women’s Golf’ is an initiative from ELGA and the EGU which links in to England Golf’s Whole Sport Plan and is an integral part of the vision to grow the game
