Women’s Golf Day will return for its fourth year on June 4 2019, in what promises to be the largest single-day celebration of women’s golf that the world has ever seen.
Having entered into a brand new partnership with the ANNIKA Foundation, the charity of women’s golf legend Annika Sorenstam, Women's Golf Day will reach further than ever before in helping to support young women around the world through the power of golf for years to come.
Women’s Golf Day is a one-day, four-hour global experience for women and girls. It is a celebration of women and girls learning golf skills that last a lifetime and being part of a larger global community. Over the past three years, Women's Golf Day events have been held at over 900 venues in 52 countries with over 50,000 women and girls.
Plans for this year's event are well underway and the initial response from both host venues and potential participants has been unprecedented.
From what started out as a labour of love for Women's Golf Day founder Elisa Gaudet in 2016, the number of women that have been reached through the initiative is remarkable. With new partnerships and the potential for continued impact on women and girls all over the world, Women's Golf Day 2019 is ready to raise the bar even further. Elisa commented, “Annika continues to be a global icon and a champion for women around the world to get into to golf and succeed. She has been a great supporter of WGD since we started out on our mission to engage, empower and support women through golf in 2016."
"We are thrilled to be able to support Annika in her goals for the ANNIKA Foundation and encourage our locations around the globe to support women achieving and advancing through golf.”
Annika echoed the words of Elisa as she offered her support for the Women's Golf Day 2019 events worldwide, “After I stepped away from competitive golf, I knew I wanted to share my passion for the game. Working with initiatives like Women’s Golf Day, which share many of the same goals I have for my ANNIKA Foundation, is inspiring. While there’s still much work to be done, we’re making great strides toward bringing our great game to even more women around the globe.”
