Clubs across Lancashire are being urged to answer a rallying call to help grow the number of women playing golf.

While the latest participation figures from the Red Rose county have shown a healthy 4% rise in overall statistics, the number of girls and ladies taking to the fairways remains an area for improvement.

Now golfing organisations in the county are combining to stage a special conference to help clubs develop a successful approach to helping more females take up the sport.

High-profile guest speakers will outline a practical way forward for clubs to adopt – with England Golf’s club development officers offering further support to help build on the lessons of the day-long event at Mytton Fold Golf Club, near Blackburn, on March 15 (10am).

Phil Harvey, secretary of the Lancashire Golf Development Group said:

“At the end of the conference clubs will leave with a blueprint for the kind of activities, attitudes and approaches that will make a real difference in encouraging more women to play golf.''

“This may range from a different membership structure, creating more family time or developing clear coaching pathways for female players – but clubs will have a practical and useful variety of ideas which they can adopt to best suit their own needs.''

“The conference will discuss why it is so important to grow the women’s game, the obstacles to doing so, how it can be achieved and the help available to all clubs.”

Registration for the free event is now open.
