Women & Golf’, the UK’s leading media platform in female golf, who will support the tournament going forward.

The ‘Royal Deeside Golf Week’ (RDGW) is delighted to welcome another new partner: ‘Women & Golf’, the UK’s leading media platform in female golf, who will support the tournament going forward.

The established 30-year brand, ‘Women & Golf’ has gone through some exciting changes lately including the launch of a new website and exclusive Members’ Club. As the UK’s leading media platform in women’s golf since 1991, they pride themselves on being the most authoritative source of information on the women’s game and an ongoing supporter in encouraging more women and girls of all ages into this brilliant sport.

RDGW Co-Ordinator Nigel Bradburn said:

“We are delighted to be working with the long-standing and highly respected ‘Women & Golf’ platform. They will bring considerable value in promoting Aberdeenshire as a golfing destination for lady golfers”.  

About Royal Deeside Golf Week

Established in 2003, the RDGW is hosted by four clubs (Banchory, Aboyne, Ballater and Braemar) spread along a 40-mile corridor on Royal Deeside, Scotland. Visitors play each course in a 72-hole stableford tournament which is open to both male and female golfers of varying abilities.

Nigel added: “the RDGW has been substantially impacted over the past few years with the ravages of 'Storm Frank' and the resulting flooding of courses and properties adjoining the River Dee. In addition, tourism on Royal Deeside has been severely affected by the COVID pandemic.  Attracting golfers to the area forms a crucial part of the wider economic recovery programme as the retail and hospitality sector benefit from the influx of golfing visitors during the season. 

"Following a restricted relaunch of the RDGW in 2021, we sold the competition out in just five days. Further high demand this year has seen the tournament expand with a doubling of women scheduled to play in the competition.”

Partnering with Women & Golf

Kim Wild, Chair of Women & Golf said:

“Women & Golf are delighted to be supporting the Royal Deeside Golf Week. We are thrilled to see a growing number of women compete in this 4-day tournament and hope that the four wonderful courses offer them a fun and competitive golf experience. Good luck to all the competitors.”

Chris Foy, Chief Executive of Visit Aberdeenshire said:

“We are fortunate to have 55 golf courses spread across Aberdeen City & Shire varying from world-class links to beautiful inland parkland and heathland courses - including the highest in Scotland at Braemar. Golfers really are spoilt for choice and it great to see such strong demand for the RDGW again this year.”

Former Ryder Cup winner and Open Champion Paul Lawrie who lives in Aberdeenshire said:

“I started my professional career at Banchory and so know the importance golfing visitors have to the successful running of these clubs and the local economy. The four courses along the valley offer a fantastic challenge and are well suited to women golfers.  It is great news that ‘Women & Golf’ are helping promote our region and we extend a very warm welcome to all visitors.”
