The format of your Women’s Golf Day event should follow the one-day, four-hour experience. The first two hours offer two hours of lessons or play 9 holes. The second half is two hours of socializing that you can customize to your audience. The location decides if the event is public or private and if you charge a fee or not. We do ask that you keep you your location page details up to date so that your guests know what to expect.
The idea on this day is to keep the focus of the day to short format, fun, light, inclusive and welcoming, a celebration. The day should be open to skilled players and those new to the game. The format for WGD was developed after researching and reviewing a number of global golf studies and testing the concept at locations. Research showed engagement was highest for a four-hour experience that offered a combination of equal parts golf and socializing.
