Today is Virtual Women’s Golf Day, a digital event celebrating girls and women playing golf and learning the skills that last a lifetime.
Women’s Golf Day (WGD) is a single-day event scheduled the first Tuesday of every June to introduce new female participants to golf and celebrate existing players by joining them together irrespective of race, religion, language, ethnicity, or location. Founded by Elisa Gaudet and now in its fifth year, WGD has become a global movement. WGD strives to Engage, Empower and Support women and girls through the event and platform. The one-day, four-hour event, has now taken place at more than 900 locations in 52 countries since its inception in 2016, and has introduced thousands of new golfers to the sport.
In light of the escalated response to the global Coronavirus pandemic, this year, WGD is adapting the event to bring the industry together to engage and empower women as part of a virtual WGD celebration. The health and well-being of WGD partners and guests is paramount, so the events that take place worldwide as part of the world’s largest single day celebration of women’s golf will move to the 1st of September, providing that there is clearance from the WHO and governing bodies.
Just as in previous years, today’s celebration started as the sun rose in Australia and will end as the sun sets in Hawaii.
