Natalie Clarke (former Ladies European Tour golfer who also worked with Pete Cowen) the only female PGA qualified teaching professional in Derbyshire has joined the Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club. Their intention is to develop women’s golf in the local area.
I can only welcome the idea, since female golfers‘ participation in the UK is one of the lowest in Europe (14% according to KPMG; England Golf says 13% of all golfers, aged 15 years plus (SMS, 2013), with 113,300 females participating on a once a week basis, as measured by the Active People Survey (APS8 Q2) ).
Breadsall Priory also plans to run a series of ladies evenings and introductory clinics in the coming months. I would also recommend to check England Golf‘s advice how to improve and support women’s participation in golf.
