Women and Girls in Golf Week promoting female participation is back in 2021

Women and Girls in Golf Week, an online campaign promoting female participation at all levels and challenging negative perceptions about the game, is back for 2021.

This year's campaign runs from 16th to 22nd August and is once again timed to coincide with the staging of the AIG Women's Open at Carnoustie Golf Links when the eyes of the world are firmly focused on the women's game.

The week aims to unite the golf industry and celebrate the successes of women and girls both on and off the course.

England Golf are delighted to announce industry support from adidas, BIGGA, Black British Golfers, Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, EDGA, GCMA, Girls in Golf Society, Golf Foundation and the Muslim Golf Association.

England Golf, the governing body for the club and amateur game, is the driving force behind the initiative which is now in its fourth year.

As well as involving media outlets in the promotion of the women's game, there is the chance for the golfing public, both male and female, to join in the online fun.

During Women and Girls in Golf Week, the golf community can get involved by using the #WhyIGolf in posts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and remembering to tag in England Golf.

Individuals can share their #WhyIGolf stories now for an opportunity to be featured in the national videos or on the England Golf website.

"Every year we look to build on the previous campaign and ensure that the amazing stories involving women and girls in golf are given the exposure they deserve," Lauren Spray, the women and girls in golf manager at England Golf.

"I'm always a firm believer in the phrase if you can't see it, you can't be it."
