Letchworth Golf Club

Women and Girls Week 2022

Once again, the England Golf  social media campaign coincides with the staging of the AIG Women’s Open, held this year at Muirfield in Scotland, where the focus of the world’s media attention is on the female game.

The online and digital campaign is aimed at celebrating female successes on and off the course, sharing inspiring and positive stories involving females and their participation at all levels of the game.

At  Letchworth Golf Club we have a lot to shout about as we get a mix of past and current members, volunteers and beginner Academy members to tell their stories around the hashtag  #WhyIGolf.

Each day of the campaign focuses on a different theme to showcase the wide variety of ways women and girls of all ages can get into golf.

This year’s campaign themes will be: All the stories can be read HERE
