There is a new breed of passionate women golfers gracing the best greens in the country today. These skillful players are influencing the game in a host of interesting ways, and are challenging the old preconceptions of what it means to be a golfer and to love the game.
It is imperative that women, alongside their male contemporaries, have arenas where they can improve their techniques and socialize with like minded people. Many women golfers would agree that whilst it is both enjoyable and valuable to play with male golf partners, as so often happens in golfing couples, it is also hugely important to have access to woman-orientated spheres if they are to reach their full potential.
With this in mind, organisations like the Executive Womens Golf Association are utterly worthwhile as they cater to this slightly marginalized group of golf enthusiasts.
So, what can the EWGA do for you? Well, if you are sometimes frustrated by the limitations of playing and socializing only with male peers, or if you would like to get tips from women golf professionals, then this is a commodity you simply must tap into.
They have chapters all over the country so you can contact whichever is closest to you and begin building new relationships with women golfers in your area, which will ultimately improve your game and your enjoyment. Membership offers you participation in their Golf Club Network offering reduced playing fees and golf instruction, and information on which of the facilities local to you are women friendly. The EWGA organize a range of activities including annual get-togethers, tournaments, weekly evening ‘ 9 hole’ games, business networking and social functions, weekend golf trips, charity fund-raising events, and seminars to improve your golf theory. Soon you will be showing your old male golf partners a thing or two! here.)
