NEW YORK, NY — The in­au­gu­ral In­ter­na­tional Women’s Golf Day (WGD) will be cel­e­brated around the world on Tues­day, June 7, 2016.

Be­tween the hours of 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm, this first-of-its-kind, global-growth-of-thegame event will wel­come women and girls to golf fa­cil­i­ties where they’ll be in­tro­duced to the game in a wel­com­ing and spir­ited en­vi­ron­ment. The event also en­cour­ages ex­ist­ing fe­male golf en­thu­si­asts to at­tend and tee it up for nine holes of late-af­ter­noon scram­ble-for­mat golf.

In­ter­na­tional Women’s Golf Day was started by a group of golf-in­dus­try veter­ans work­ing to­gether to de­liver an in­tro­duc­tory golf ex­pe­ri­ence to women and girls around the world. The four-hour ex­pe­ri­ence con­sists of two hours of golf and two hours of so­cial­iz­ing. From 4:00 to 6:00 pm the par­tic­i­pant will have the op­tion of two hours of lessons or an on­course, 9-hole ex­pe­ri­ence. From 6:00-8:00 pm, at­ten­dees will par­tic­i­pate in a cel­e­bra­tory gath­er­ing that will fea­ture so­cial­iz­ing, net­work­ing, speak­ers, in­for­ma­tion on more ways to play golf, and the chance to make con­nec­tions through the game.

Or­ga­niz­ers highly rec­om­mend fa­cil­i­ties reg­is­ter by the end of May to max­i­mize pro­mo­tional ex­po­sure.

“We are invit­ing all golf fa­cil­i­ties to par­tic­i­pate in this event to en­gage and en­cour­age women and girls to play golf,” said WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet. “Women’s Golf Day is an op­por­tu­nity for golf fa­cil­i­ties to host a women-wel­com­ing event that works for women in their com­mu­nity as well as for their fa­cil­ity. There is no charge to the fa­cil­ity and lots of up­side and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment for golf cour­ses.”

In the United States, Women’s Golf Day par­tic­i­pants in­clude: Lead­bet­ter Golf Academy at PGA Na­tional Re­sort & Spa (West Palm Beach, FL); St. John’s Golf Club (Elk­ton, FL); Palm Beach Par-3 Golf Course (Palm Beach, FL); An­chor­age Golf Course (An­chor­age, AK); Rhodes Ranch Golf Club (Las Ve­gas, NV); Greg Nor­man Cham­pi­ons Golf Academy (North Myr­tle Beach, SC); Ar­row­head Coun­try Club (Glen­dale, AZ); Fox Meadow Coun­try Club (Me­d­ina, OH); and PGA TOUR Su­per­store’s from coast to coast.

“This is a great event to il­lus­trate that ev­ery day, re­ally, is Women’s Golf Day,” said Jim Oliver, Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer for Dal­las-based Ar­cis Golf, which man­ages and owns 70 cour­ses and clubs in the U.S. “From coast to coast, our Ar­cis Golf fa­cil­i­ties are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence that en­cour­ages women and girls to play golf. De­vel­op­ing a re­la­tion­ship with the game, and the peo­ple who play it can lead to a life­time of en­joy­ment.”

Women’s Golf Day has been well re­ceived.
