St. Johns Golf Club Celebrates Women’s Golf Day on June 5th
Did you know that more than three-quarters of all golfers are male? According to the National Golf Foundation, a Florida-based company that conducts research on the golf industry, the good news is that females have a bright future in the game. Girls currently claim one-third of the total number of junior golfers. That’s nearly double what it was in 1995.
“We have seen an influx in girls and women playing at our course,” said Wes Tucker, Director of Golf at St. Johns Golf Club, a St. Johns County-owned, 18-hole public golf course located in Elkton. “That was just one of the reasons we wanted to take part in Women’s Golf Day. It’s important to celebrate the game while fostering confidence in players across all walks of life. A few of our partner groups like The First Tee of North Florida and our club’s own Ladies Golf Association will also be taking part.”
Women’s Golf Day is a global golf initiative launched in 2016 to introduce women of all ages to the game, and encourage existing female golfers to get out and play in a fun and highly inclusive environment. Last year, more than 20,000 females participated at 700 venues across 46 countries around the world. To learn more about Women’s Golf Day, visit womensgolfday.com.
