The Golf Foundation's Pledge to The R&A Women in Golf Charter
In May 2018, The R&A launched a Women in Golf Charter, with the aim to increase women and girls’ participation and membership in golf, encourage more families to enjoy golf as a leisure activity and encourage more opportunities for women to work in the golf industry.
The Women in Golf Charter intends to inspire an industry-wide commitment to developing a more inclusive culture within golf around the world and enable more women and girls to flourish and maximise their potential at all levels of the sport.
The Golf Foundation believes in making the introduction of golf to young people fun, inspiring and inclusive. These values are being applied to recruiting and retaining more girls in golf. Therefore the Golf Foundation is proud to be a signatory of The R&A Women in Golf Charter.
The Foundation has 2 strategic aims, firstly to help more young people enjoy the playing and personal benefits of golf by making the sport more accessible and secondly to help more young people to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in golf, providing a pathway into golf clubs. Both of these aims are crucial when attracting more girls into the game.
