Politicians have clubbed together to support this year’s National Golf Month, which will this year focus on getting more women trying the game for the first time this May.
Politicians declared their support for the #GirlsGetGolfing initiative on social media and supported calls for golf clubs and pros to register ‘taster’ sessions aimed at getting more women on the course.
Karl McCartney MP, Member of Parliament for Lincoln and Group Co-Chairman said
“The Parliamentary Golf Group is committed to growing the game in all corners of the United Kingdom, so we are delighted to fully support this #GirlsGetGolfing campaign.”
“14% of golf participants in the UK are women compared to up to 35% in countries such as Germany and Sweden. Encouraging more women and girls to play golf is not only a challenge but represents a massive opportunity for clubs to exploit this gap in the market, and provide more opportunities for women and girls to take part in physical activity.
“There simply hasn’t been a better time be involved in the sport. Golf is a great game that can be enjoyed with friends or family, and women should seek out opportunities taking place in their local area.”
New participants interested in playing the game during May can now visit www.nationalgolfmonth.com to search for taster sessions taking place in their local area.
