American Golf is now stocking it's own ladies' range of golf clothing across all 95 stores in the UK and Ireland
We’ve all experienced the disappointment of going into our local pro shop or American Golf and either finding none or very little women’s golf clothing to choose from. It seems unbelievable that this could be the case in 2022.
Whilst the following isn’t a perfect solution, it is a step in the right direction. To coincide with Women’s Golf Day, American Golf announced that they will be stocking their own ladies’ range in all 95 stores across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Stromberg and Greg Norman apparel, including skorts, gilets, mid layers and footwear, in a wide range of summery colourways, will feature in a dedicated section in each store. New SS22 The Open Collection, an officially licensed range inspired by The Open Championship, is also available for females in stores, as well as online.
Here’s what Gary Favell, CEO of American Golf, had to say:
“Adding ladies’ golf clothing into all our stores is a natural progression for us and a positive sign that more females are playing the sport. We’ve been committed to bringing more women into golf for years, proven with our support of pro-golfer Carly Booth and golf influencer Mia Baker, as well as sponsoring events, including the ISPS HANDA World Invitational and Rose Ladies Series.
"We’ve chosen an accessible collection to offer everything a golfer needs, whether complete beginner or seasoned pro and we hope this encourages even more females into the game.”
American Golf's commitment goes beyond clothing
Kate Rose, Justin Rose’s wife, founder of the Rose Ladies Series and Inclusivity Ambassador at the new Justin Rose Academy, which operates from American Golf sites, welcomes the move:
“It is great to see this announcement from American Golf and its continued commitment to supporting ladies in the sport. We look forward to welcoming many of these golfers to the Justin Rose Academies over the coming months and showcasing the fun you can have with the sport.”
With sizes only going to UK16 in Stromberg and XL in Greg Norman, there will still be some disappointment from a number of women golfers. We’ll be heading to our local American Golf stores to see what’s on offer soon. Have you been to your local American Golf – we’d love to hear your feedback, email [email protected]
Hopefully, if American Golf's own brands sell well, we'll see an even larger range of clothing available across all stores in the future.
