Women's Golf Day 2021
A group of 30 women was among those celebrating International Women’s Golf Day by getting in a round of golf at Poppy HIlls Golf Course in Pebble Beach. Up at Poppy Ridge GC in Livermore Wine Country, nearly 50 women got in holes to celebrate the day. The day was celebrated at a number of facilities in the NorCal region.
Founded in 2016, Women’s Golf Day is a collaborative effort by a dedicated team, golf management companies, retailers and golf organizations and governing bodies all working together to Engage, Empower and Support girls and women through golf. Since its inception, WGD has been engaging participants from around the globe irrespective of race, religion, language, ethnicity, or geography and continues to see an increase year after year. WGD encourages participating locations to have a charitable component. WGD has a global impact from collective grassroots local events.
The one-day, four-hour event is rypically held the first Tuesday in June each year. Women’s Golf Day offers a simple and accessible platform from which players can build or deepen a foundation interest in golf. WGD supports the creation of a network to support the continuation of golf no matter what skill level.
In past years, festivities at both Poppy Hills and Poppy Ridge have included clinics on everything from putting and driving to fitness. The clinics were scrapped this year due to COVID-19.
