It’s Women and Girls’ Golf Week across Great Britain and Ireland to raise awareness of the fabulous female side of the game.

The week, which coincides with the Ricoh Women’s British Open and the English girls’ championship, continues until Sunday and is the inspiration of England Golf.

It is an online campaign to celebrate the successes of women and girls in many different roles in golf – and to challenge misconceptions.

It starts by introducing three amazing career women and inviting women and girls everywhere to join the conversation by sharing their stories with #WhyIGolf

There will be a different theme for every day with amazing people being featured.

Women and girls everywhere are invited to join the conversation on social media using #WhyIGolf.

England Golf and the other home unions, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, have pledged their support for The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter, and this week is one example of their involvement.

The Charter was recently launched with the aim of inspiring an industry-wide commitment to a more inclusive culture, enabling women and girls to flourish and reach their potential at all levels of the sport.
