There is an old Chinese proverb that says:
“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Involve me and I will understand. Step back and I will act.”
This is why I think it is a good idea that American Golf is teaming up with Sport England's ‘This Girl Can’ campaign as part of the National Golf Month event.
Attracting more women to golf is the best interest of golf clubs and of those who are involved in the golf industry. England Golf Golf Club Membership Questionnaire 2014 have shown us last year that
- Female members only make up 15% of golf club membership (probably the lowest rate in the EU);
- 55% of golf clubs have reported a decrease in Adult Female membership compared to only 21% that have shown an increase. 38% of golf clubs have reported a decrease in Junior Girls compared to only 20% that have shown an increase.
