Global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® announced that 37 of its U.S. venues will offer a golf instruction and networking event for women on Tuesday, June 5 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. This special Topgolf Coach class, hosted in honor of Women’s Golf Day, will be tailored to teach women of all skill levels the fundamentals of the game in a relaxed and social setting.
Women make up 24 percent of traditional golfers, according to a report issued by the National Golf Foundation this month. Approximately 32 percent of all Topgolf players are female – a 12 percent increase since 2012. Women’s Golf Day was established in 2016 to help increase interest and participation in the sport among women.
“We are excited to have Topgolf participate in Women’s Golf Day, adding another fun and engaging option for participants. The social component of Women’s Golf Day events are just as important as the golf, so in that respect, Topgolf is the perfect WGD host location,” said Founder of Women’s Golf Day Elisa Gaudet.
Topgolf’s energetic, beginner-friendly 60-minute class is built around a variety of drills to improve body motions and make each individual’s golf swing intuitive and free-flowing. One hour of instruction will include –
10 Minutes – Warm-up and Review the Basics (grip, stance, posture, wedges, irons and woods)
40 Minutes – Drill Stations (individuals to work as two-person teams)
10 Minutes – Intro to Competition (instructors will direct individuals in how to use their newly learned skills to play Topgolf games)
All Topgolf coaches know how to bring about improvement for their students by customizing their teaching method to match their student’s personality, skill level and goals. Each coach goes through a rigorous certification program with access to video analysis tools and high-tech games to demonstrate trackable progress for their students.
“Topgolf is everyone’s game, and we are delighted to offer this complimentary ladies class on Women’s Golf Day in our efforts to introduce more women to golf,” said Vice President of Marketing Susan Walmesley. “With Topgolf making socializing a sport, we are proud to offer women an opportunity to not only swing a golf club for potentially the first time, but also to create memories with the other women in their class and develop lasting connections.”
With a maximum of 12 women per class, interested individuals should register early for their complimentary session at topgolf.com/womensgolfday.
