Welcome to Golfhers, the community and platform for female leaders in the golf industry. This platform was created because I saw a need for a community that connects women in the golf industry, because so few of us exist. Women only make up about 5% of PGA Class A professionals and less than 30% of women's college teams are coached by women, which plummeted from 90% after the passing of Title IX in 1972.
It's been a mission for the PGA to get more women involved in golf. But what about women in the golf industry? We need more women filling leadership positions to be the mentors and advocates for the younger generation. This platform is not just a place to share stories; it is a place of inspiration, motivation, and empowerment through our community of Golfhers.
I run this page by myself and it is completely nonprofit. When I first started this in January of 2020, I dreamed to have Golfhers merchandise available for purchase where all proceeds will fund a scholarship for the PGA/LPGA programs. Now, that dream is a reality. One day, I want Golfhers to be part of the PGA/LPGA with meetups at major events. While I will continue to strive toward my dreams, I will also continue to accomplish my original mission: to connect female leaders in the golf industry. I will do this by interviewing women throughout various positions in the golf industry and share their story on here and on Instagram/Facebook.
If you ever have feedback or want to help out and get involved in this community in any way, feel free to fill out the contact form, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a direct message on Instagram (@golf.hers). Any and all ideas are welcome!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy these stories!
