About the event
From our perspective we need to move the narrative away from “how do we get more people access to the game of golf” to “how do we get black communities more invested in the game.” The life of a woman is busy. Faced with a myriad of responsibilities that cross business, family, social and personal boundaries, the challenges for her to find time is difficult. Golf can increase the quality of life by renewing your spirit, improving your posture, enhancing your balance control, building confidence and providing numerous health and fitness benefits.
In which ways may golfing for women of color differ from the experience of white women golfers? The culture of golf has historically been dominated by the white male population. Overall, women of all races have been excluded from the sport. Five years ago, the PGA saw the opportunity to focus on the female golfer as women are excelling in their careers and have disposable income. As women of color advance in their professional careers, golf will be a necessary skill to help level the playing field and enable them to reap benefits beyond normal employee contributions. This clinic is open to all women and girls 18 and over. The golf tournament will be open to both women and men. Pete Brown Golf Course has been selected due to its history and connection to community.
