Eagle Golf, a Dallas-based golf management company, announces a new partnership with Women on Course (WOC), a national organization that provides high quality events which allow women to participate in the golf lifestyle in a warm, welcoming environment. WOC’s commitment to generate greater participation in the game through events and social engagements among women is in sync with Eagle Golf.
Eagle Golf saw this alliance as an opportunity to grow the game of golf and therefore reached out to Donna Hoffman, Founder and President of Women on Course, to form a partnership with preferred offerings for the WOC Members at Eagle Golf properties in cities with WOC communities such as Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Phoenix and more.
“I am impressed by the universal support Eagle Golf is providing to open their doors to welcome women into the golf lifestyle. Our partnership will allow us to provide our members with opportunities to play and learn where the focus is on friendships and fun,” Hoffman said.
According to the National Golf Foundation in 2009, 27.1 million people were playing golf. In 2010, that number dropped to 26.1 million. In fact, the number has declined over the past three years.
“It has always been our desire to introduce more women to the game of golf and increase the participation of those who already play or are looking to return to the game in a welcoming and non-intimidating environment,” said Joe Munsch, President and CEO of Eagle Golf. “We appreciate the approach Women on Course takes to engage women through all aspects of the golf lifestyle, including fashion, fitness, networking, socializing and usually, a glass of wine to end a day of fun.”
