Women's golf hits Wall Street
Women’s golf is the talk of Wall Street today (May 25) as the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange signals the start of this year’s Women’s Golf Day celebrations.
New for 2021 is the introduction of Women’s Golf Day Palooza, a virtual online event on Tuesday 25 May, hosted at The World Golf Hall of Fame and featuring Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam and a stellar line-up of influential figures from the golfing world.
Jan Bel Jan, golf course architect and former president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) will take part in a roundtable discussion as part of the event, alongside Cathy Harbin, owner of Pine Ridge Golf Course in Paris, Texas and a PGA of America board member.
WGD Palooza is designed to connect golfers from around the world with those who are creating opportunities for more people to engage with the sport.
Commenting on this year’s celebrations, Elisa Gaudet, Founder of Women’s Golf Day, said: “We realize many people are still greatly affected by Covid and cannot get out on the golf course right now.
“We created a digital event that unites golf in one place, that inspires new and existing golfers and allows them to interact via live chat with brands, players and industry leaders. It will be fun, insightful and entertaining.”
Women’s Golf Day Palooza is the prelude to Women’s Golf Day, which takes place on Tuesday 1 June, with 900 locations across 68 countries participating.
WGD Palooza is free to attend and open to all.
