Making the game of golf more accessible and welcoming to women.

International Women’s Day – How will you mark the day?

Local female golf pro marks International Women’s Day by removing barriers to women’s golf

March 7, 2016  For Immediate Release

Halifax, NS  Sara Wilson, a PGA golf professional wants to mark International Women’s Day by removing the barriers women face today in golf. “The male-oriented environment is a major barrier to golf for women along with cost, limited skill, time, family constraints, lack of golfing friends as major barriers to golf for women,” says Wilson.

“Research indicates that there are more than twice as many men playing golf then there are women. Wilson formed Metro Ladies Golf to make the game more accessible and welcoming to the female player. “My approach is to bring women from HRM of varying golf interests together and guide them through the golf experience. We do this by organizing games on a variety of courses, providing lessons, information on golf rules and etiquette and lots of comradery and fun.”

Wilson says “I believe we are making progress, 60 % of our membership is brand new to the game and this is very exciting.” This is the third year of Metro Ladies Golf, we have been growing every year and we expect to have 150 members join this year. One member, Nancy Bowie had this to say about Metro Ladies Golf, “as a beginner golfer I can enjoy the game without intimidation or fear.”

“I invite every woman, regardless of golf experience, to also mark International Women’s Day by making it a goal to take up golf this year. It is good for the mind, body and a lot of fun. Women interested in more information can join us at an information session at Brightwood Golf Club on March 11th from 6-8pm or visit our website at www.metroladiesgolf.ca,” said Wilson.

Thank you, Sara, for your good instruction…  Over the past couple of years, my game had regressed to a point where I wasn’t really enjoying the sport as much.  However, now I am striking the ball better…Thank you again.
