It's no secret that many a business deal has been closed on a golf course and golf has long been regarded as the language of business.
Historically, golf has been male-dominated, and societal norms and expectations have discouraged women from actively participating or seeking opportunities on the golf course. In this male-dominated setting, women can feel added pressure to prove themselves, leading to heightened anxiety and reduced confidence. Because of the stereotypes and pressure to perform, women continually take themselves out of the conversation by choosing not to participate in golf-related activities.
Encouraging women to embrace golf and providing opportunities for women to participate will foster a more inclusive and dynamic environment that can benefit both business and personal growth.
GolfHER was created to address these issues by creating a more inclusive and supportive environment for women on the golf course. Promoting equal opportunities, offering access to training and development, and celebrating the achievements of female golfers can help break down the barriers and boost women's confidence on the golf course. GolfHER is putting women back in the conversation.
We are thrilled to launch GolfHER with the help of Utah Tech University Women's Golf Team Coach Lindsay Stucki, BigShots Golf, and the St. George Area Chamber of Commerce.
