Q: What is Women on Course?
Women on Course is dedicated to connecting and encouraging participation in the golf lifestyle by highlighting the business, social and fitness benefits of the game. We’ve designed a national event and online program, which removes the intimidation and classic barriers that have caused women to overlook the game. We invite women to participate by positioning golf in a welcoming environment among business women with similar interests. Through a variety of creative event formats, entry to golf programs, membership, and access to ‘women welcome’ resources Women on Course makes it easy for players of all skill levels to become involved in the golf lifestyle.
Q: Do I have to be a golfer to attend a Women on Course event?
Not at all, in fact one third of our guests have very little knowledge of the game. Women on Course designs events that fit a busy women’s schedule. Happy Hour/Lunch and Spa formats provide a welcome environment for women of all skill levels to meet others with similar business and golf interests. Golf events provide a choice of activities ranging from our signature clinics to course play at some of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the country.
Q: Who typically attends Women on Course events?
Women on Course guests and members are fun, interesting and accomplished women from varied and diverse backgrounds. They are women looking for an introduction to the game or access to other players. They may or may not be a regular golfer, but our members see the value golf brings to her business and personal life.

Q: How is Women on Course different from other women’s golf organizations?
Most golf organizations focus on one thing -- organized golf activities focused on getting the ball in the hole. While we offer events to play and learn the game, our focus is to connect women with ALL the benefits that the golf lifestyle has to offer. We facilitate business and social networking, and highlight the fashion, fitness, travel, wine and luxury components which surround the world of golf. So even when you are not swinging a club, you can live the golf lifestyle and take part in all the benefits.
Q: Are there local chapters?
Women on Course is managed at the national level and is not organized into chapters. The national event team plans and facilitates monthly Signature and Play Day events in over 20 US cities that are all open to members and guests. Signature Events are designed for larger groups of women managed on site by Women on Course staff. Play Days are scheduled to accommodate smaller casual outings, with a local Women on Course Member Ambassador appointed to welcome guests and facilitate onsite.
I spent most of my life thinking golf was a terribly boring game, and I could find a million other ways to spend my leisure hours. So, how did I end up creating a national organization introducing and connecting women to the golf lifestyle?
Dating as a single mom I found most men had a fixation with golf. Then I meet Mark who carried a 2 handicap. (that’s golf we’re talking about) Remarkably he made golf a wonderful part of our courtship and we’ve been married for 6 years. Mark introduced me to the game by highlighting aspects unrelated to score, such as the beautiful settings, cool outfits, and ending our day with new friends, chardonnay and a sunset! To ensure I’d get hooked he made sure I could master the swing with a few basic lessons. Yes, swinging a golf club for 30 minutes is a terrific workout, and ‘keep your eye on the ball’ is not a golf lesson. (my former husband’s attempt to get me into the game)
I found the opportunity to share my new passion through my position as a television producer. What began as a golf travel series has grown into a rewarding career helping women discover the personal benefits and lasting relationships created in a golf setting.
Women On Course is about helping women to discover the joy of the golf lifestyle. Everything that may have held you back gets easier and becomes possible in a welcoming and supportive environment composed of like-minded women. Anyone that has picked up a club knows how hard the game can be, and we encourage women to find an aspect of the game at which they can succeed. We've helped women gain confidence, master new skills, carve out personal time, reduce stress, enjoy the outdoors, and overcome their fears. And when a woman has this much fun and support her game is bound to improve!
Golf is so much more then getting the ball into the hole – ask anyone that has been to a Women on Course event! I invite you to attend and experience the magic for yourself.
