We've had a look through the Women & Golf website stats to bring you the top stories that you read in 2023.

Throughout 2023 we've brought you a mix of news, reviews and views on many topics across the golf world. From good news stories to product launches, industry insights to golf course reviews and everything in between. We hope you have enjoyed the variety of content we have produced.

Here we run down the Top stories from the Women & Golf website in 2023.

Baby News

Who doesn't like a good news story?! Baby news came aplenty in 2023, with a number of LPGA players becoming first time Moms.

Amongst some of our top stories on this topic were Sophia Popov, 2020 AIG Women's Open champion, who welcomed a baby girl in June, Jessica Korda who announced she was expecting a baby in early 2024 and fan favourite Mel Reid who welcomed a baby boy Kai with her wife Carly after a slightly dramatic birth in October.

Inbee Park, Amy Olson and Lindsey Weaver Wright also welcomed their first children.

If you are pregnant or coming back to golf after pregnancy then Charlotte shared her thoughts on getting into golf after pregnancy here.

Rose Ladies Series

After launching during the pandemic in 2020, the Rose Ladies Series has been a popular addition to women's professional golf scene in the UK.

Every year since there has been speculation about whether it will return, so it came as no surprise that the announcement of the 2023 Rose Ladies Series was one of our most well-read articles.

This year may have offered a reduced number of events but the five events with £10,000 first prize gave playing opportunities to a number of professional golfers when the tour schedule was quieter.

Here's a look back at what happened this year - Rose Ladies Series 2023.

Will it return in 2024? Nothing is confirmed, so watch this space.

Solheim Cup

The biennial event is always a hit and we saw a surge of traffic to the website during Solheim Cup week. From player announcements to exclusive interviews to daily round-ups, we kept you up to speed with everything that was happening on the fairways at Finca Cortesin.

However, it was our post event coverage that proved most popular when we rated every team member from Team Europe and Team USA. Did you agree with our thoughts? 2023 Solheim Cup: Players Rated

Not long to wait until we get to do it all again as the Solheim Cup moves to even years and goes stateside for 2024 at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

World Handicap System

WHS England Golf James Luke

The World Handicap System is still taking time to bed down and with new changes coming in 2024 to WHS and Course Ratings, it's no surprise that our Q&A with James Luke, Head of Handicapping and Course Rating at England Golf was so popular.

You can listen back to the conversation here and get clued up before the season ahead.

Charlotte wrote some thought provoking pieces this year on what it is like for women who play off a lower handicap with the new system - Are we driving all the good women away? and Bridging the gap: Catering to low handicap women golfers, are both really good reads.

Teeing it forward

Foxhills tees

Tees and which ones we can play from also stem from the above discussion. It's often something that I believe is really women's golf issue. Whether that be the fact that not all tees are rated for women or maybe that as we age, the option to tee it up further forwarded isn't afforded to us like it is the men.

In February a W&G reader Sally Potts took a comprehensive look into the impact that tee placement is having on women in golf - read the full article here.

Embracing genderless tees is also something that is becoming more prevalent at courses in the UK, both Goodwood and Foxhills shared their updated tee stories which proved a popular read.

We take our role very seriously when it comes to highlighting the good and the bad for women golfers in the UK. We look forward to doing more of the same in 2024.

As always, please drop us an email with any news, reviews or views from the world of golf.
