Earlier this year our friends at the LPGA launched the LPGA Women’s Network, and we’re happy to celebrate it as a wonderful resource for women in the game.
While there are numerous clubs, organizations and groups (both casual and formal) for women in and around the game of golf, there are relatively few centralized resources on a national scale. It’s one of the reasons Women’s Golf Journal was created: to provide a national lifestyle media presence for golfing and golf-curious women who use the game in their personal, social and professional lives. From the LPGA, the digital platform that launched this January is a great resource for the same, offering instruction and a range of career and lifestyle advice in the LPGA’s voice. With the recent folding-in of the Executive Women’s Golf Association, which became part of the LPGA Foundation this spring, the LPGA Women’s Network added a component that LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan lauded as “an incredible network of amateur women golfers who love to play this great game. By combining forces with the LPGA, we look to further enhance the benefits and experiences associated with membership. We believe the LPGA can provide both the resources and financial support needed to take this wonderful organization of passionate women to the next level.”
The move certainly underlines the LPGA Women’s Network’s commitment to helping women to connect via the game. The online community facilitates communication and networking for both advanced and amateur golfers, fostering a sense of camaraderie among women who want to move through the game, growing and improving even as they make new friends and professional connections. For any woman who loves golf or who’s considered picking up a club, there’s something to find in the LPGA Women’s Network. Check it out at lpgawomensnetwork.com
