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

Women taking up sports later in life, just for the love of the game

Kelly Cahill, manager of a health-care company in Halifax, isn’t a total sports newbie – for years she has been a runner and hit softball diamonds. Her foray into golf started because she wanted to play alongside her husband, a long-time golf enthusiast, so she joined PGA of Canada pro Sara Wilson’s Metro Ladies Golf Inc. club four years ago to brush up on the game.

The first few times on the links were “terrifying” because she was new to a sport that’s male-oriented, but she has since gained many friends and opened herself to other athletic and social adventures. She even plans to take up curling this fall after experiencing an event put together by Metro Ladies Golf.

Why You Need Your Own Clubs

Ladies, learning to golf this year? Why you need your own clubs.

Ladies golf clubs are lightweight with graphite shafts, shorter, more flexible and have smaller grips. These features will suit many females out there.   Read More >>>
