As golfers, how often have we invited someone who has an interest in the game to join us at the golf course?
One of the main challenges for women who wish to learn or return to golf is the game’s inherent intimidation factor. Since it is rare that anyone attends a party they are not invited to, and there is an interest in making golf more welcoming, the golf industry is launching the new #inviteHER initiative. The goal of #inviteHER is to encourage golfers to inspire the women in their lives to play golf.
The nationwide initiative was launched on August 29th and will focus on the friendly invite to prospective golfers which can be initiated through a specific event, a visit to a local driving range, taking a lesson, or playing a few holes. #inviteHER is not intended to be a one-and-done campaign, but rather a lasting rallying cry to get more women in the game.
We encourage all our members to think about other women - family, friends, business colleagues who might be interested in the game - and personally invite them to play golf with you! We believe in the power of the personal invitation to lessen the intimidation of learning how to play, showing up at the golf course for the first time, or just playing 9-holes of golf. Watch for additional details about how you can share your passion and #inviteHER to join in the fun.
