International Women’s Golf Day Comes to Westchester


Four local golf clubs will join more than 400 others in 17 countries around the world to promote International Women’s Golf Day (WGD) on Tuesday, June 7.  Women will experience the game in a warm, welcoming way at Westchester Country Club, Rye Golf Club, Doral Golf Club, and Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor that day. Details vary at each location, so check with them for availability.

WGD will be celebrated between 4-8 pm that day in a two-part format. For the first two hours, participants will have the option of lessons or an on-course, 9-hole experience. From 6-8:00 pm, attendees will participate in a celebratory gathering where they’ll socialize, network, and receive information on ways to become more involved in golf through lessons, leagues, and clinics.

“Women play a critical role in the success of the golf industry,” says Steve Mona, CEO of the World Golf Foundation. “Nearly 23 percent of all golfers in the U.S. are female and the creation of Women’s Golf Day is an opportunity to increase awareness, participation, and showcase golf as a fun activity for people of all ages.”

WGD founder Elisa Gaudet adds, “It’s both amazing and gratifying to know that we’ll have participation in every time zone worldwide. Not only will we introduce new players to the game in an inviting and inclusive manner, but participants will be able to share their experiences through social media and see how they’re actually part of a global community, doing the same thing, on the same day, around the world.”
