RICHMOND, BC (PGA of British Columbia) -- The PGA of British Columbia is proud to announce the launch of a new Association initiative in 2022 that will help showcase the many elements of one of the fastest growing areas of golf.
PGA of BC Women’s Golf Week presented by Dexim Golfwear will take place June 1-7, 2022 and will be an online-based platform for the Association to highlight various aspects of the game, specifically targeted to females in BC. From juniors to seniors and beginners to tournament players, Women’s Golf Week will dedicate seven days to showcase the many people, programs, and upcoming events available to all female golfers across the province.
Through various channels of communication of the PGA of BC, golfers will see a different area of the game brought to light, including a profile of a featured female PGA of BC Golf Professional every day.
By design, the week will cap off on June 7th, which culminates with International Women's Golf Day - a collaborative global community working to engage, empower and support girls and women through golf. This female-driven experience is available across the world and allows a simple and accessible platform to build a foundation and creates a network to support the continuation of golf no matter what skill level or interest. The annual event has been well-supported by many facilities throughout British Columbia, many of which are expected to enroll again in 2022.
“Our Board of Directors have identified women’s golf as a key demographic in which we feel our platform can be used to highlight the many great happenings in BC” said Donald Miyazaki, Executive Director of the PGA of British Columbia. “Women’s Golf Week will allow us to showcase the various programs and initiatives that all PGA of BC members have been doing for decades to promote golf for women of all ages and abilities. At the end of the day, we hope to make the game of golf and its facilities an inviting and enriching environment for existing and beginner female players”, Miyazaki adds.
