(DOHA, QATAR, 03 JUNE 2021). Pink flags are up in Education City Golf Club as they once again take part in the celebration of the International Women’s Golf Day on June 1st, 2021.

International Women’s Golf Day is an annual event that was launched in 2016 celebrating girls and women playing golf and learning the skills that last a lifetime.  This is the 2nd year that the Education City Golf Club is participating in this world-wide celebration, and they are surely taking it up a notch.

“As a committed club to the Women in Golf Charter which the R&A launched in 2018, the International Women’s Golf Day was a terrific opportunity to celebrate many of the initiatives we have implemented as a club to grow female participation in golf,” said Rhys Beecher, Director of Golf in Education City Golf Club. 

“Over the past year, we have seen the growth of our ladies’ sections both junior and adult, thanks to the key strategies to make golf more accessible and available to women. On the 1st of June, we provided both learning and playing opportunities which encouraged over 50 ladies to take part in the day. In addition, our female staff at the club also engaged in the day, which made for a celebration of the valued female colleagues working in the golf industry to grow the game,“ he added.

This year’s celebration was emphasized by providing lessons both in the morning and nighttime to new lady golfers and special rates were offered to those existing ones; followed by coffee and snack options at the club’s 5-star Green Restaurant. The club’s PGA Professional coaches facilitated the classes in the renowned Center of Excellence, boasting all their latest state-of-the-art equipment.  With the club’s philosophy of improving together, they strive to build lasting relationships with their students; whether beginner or seasoned golfers, taking pride in their progression. 

The General Manager of Education City Golf Club, Michael Braidwood proudly states: “International Women’s Golf Day is an important event as the sport globally encourages more women and girls to take golf up. Over 900 venues spread across 68 countries have taken part and here in Qatar we had over 50 ladies come to Education City Golf Club to experience golf for the first time…. And they loved it!”

With Education City Golf Club’s mission of growing the game of golf in Qatar, the International Women’s Golf Day is indeed one of their outstanding initiatives focusing not only on the skilled golfers but also introducing it to fresh sports enthusiasts and at the same time promoting a healthy lifestyle among women and girls in Qatar.
