On Wednesday, January 25 leaders from the Women’s Golf Day (WGD) initiative will host a news conference at the PGA Merchandise Show (Orlando, FL), providing insight about this female-centric player development program as well as data on why women are key economic influencers in golf. The news conference is set for 2-3 p.m., at the Orange County Convention Center (Media Center Conference Area, 3rd Floor, Room W312).
Speakers will include Women’s Golf Day supporters Steve Mona – World Golf Foundation, David MacLaren – European Tour Properties, Antony Scanlon – International Golf Federation, and Mark Gore – ClubCorp. WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet, CEO of Executive Golf International, will serve as conference moderator.
“Those attending the presentation will learn how Women’s Golf Day works, the importance of the female demographic, and how it is driving the future of golf,” said Gaudet. “Golf professionals and course owners will learn creative ways to leverage WGD that will increase revenue and participation at local facilities. Attendees will have a chance to meet WGD ambassadors and supporters who are making a difference in golf locally as well as globally.”
Women’s Golf Day aims to “inspire action” and anticipates more than 20,000 women and girls participating in the 2017 one-day event, set for Tuesday June 6, 2017.
“NGCOA is thrilled to partner with Women’s Golf Day again for 2017,” said Jay Karen, CEO of the NGCOA. “Supporting avenues to engage, empower, and support women and girls through golf is essential not only to help grow the game but also to positively impact women and girls through the health and wellness benefits of golf.”
