2019 Women’s Golf Day Wrap Up!

Women’s Golf Day (WGD) is a global golf initiative that was launched in 2016 to introduce women of all ages to the game of golf and encourage new and existing female golfers to get out on the course and “tee it up.”

On Tuesday, June 4th, 2019, staff of the California Golf Course Owners Association (CGCOA), National Golf Course Owners Association of Arizona (NGCOA Arizona) and Nevada Golf Course Owners Association (NVGCOA) helped celebrate WGD at CGCOA member course Haggin Oaks Golf Complex.

At 8:00 in the morning, the summer heat was already beginning to roll in, but that did not stop over 100 female golfers from participating in the activities Haggin Oaks had to offer. These fun in the sun activities included free interactive clinics, contests at the Academy Hole, as well as discounts on green fees, club fittings, and golf lessons.

The staff assisted with greeting all the participants with smiles and giveaways. The team even got to take a few swings on the driving range. Thanks to the coordination of the CGCOA, local news program Good Day Sacramento was on-site covering the event live. Dina Kupfer, Reporter for Good Day Sacramento, interviewed Linda Reid, Women’s Golf Ambassador for Haggin Oaks, and Kelli Corlett, Director of Youth, Family, and Adaptive Golf, also at Haggin Oaks.

Alisyn Gularte, Director of Membership and Sponsorship for CGCOA, NGCOA Arizona and NVGCOA really enjoyed chatting with all the participants, each with their own unique stories and background.

“Haggin Oaks provided a supportive and non-threatening environment for women of all abilities to learn golf. I was impressed by the staff’s friendly, energetic and patient demeanors. I was also inspired by the women I met on the course. One woman started playing because she received a gift card and wanted to try something new. Another lady began the game after her husband passed away. She hasn’t missed a day of golf in fifteen years,” Alisyn proclaims.
