PRIVITA’S BIG IDEA IS A HIT
Deane Golf Club member Privita Parma’s Facebook Group, Ladies Golf and Tee, is a big hit following her vision of linking likeminded ladies in golf.
Privita said: ‘Over ten years membership has gone down due to ageing and a lack of new lady golfers. I was looking at ways to bring like-minded ladies together.
‘My vision was that if we all linked we could make up teams, form new friendships and provide support for each other’s club opens, so they didn’t get cancelled.
‘Initially it was set up as a local clubs forum with a central portal to promote charity evenings, coffee mornings and golf opens. I contacted all the lady captains and invited them to join and they began to spread the word. I now have 410 ladies and approximately 80 clubs including the lady captains from Silver Lakes Golf Club in South Africa.
‘Now if ladies want to play in an open, they just post a message. Blackburn and Wilpshire Golf Clubs have asked me to run an Open in 2019.’
Her next steps include setting up groups for men and women wanting partners for mixed competitions.
