We are delighted to report that BMGC has recently become a signatory to the R&A Women in Golf Charter, supported by England Golf and has been awarded a certificate (below) in recognition of our commitment to create a more inclusive culture to encourage women and girls to participate across all levels of golf.
The Women in Golf Charter intends to inspire an industry-wide commitment to developing a more inclusive culture within golf around the world and enable more women and girls to flourish and maximise their potential at all levels of the sport.
Adoption of the Charter requires national federations and other golf bodies to build on and develop initiatives which will focus on encouraging more women and girls to play golf and stay within the sport as members of clubs, while also empowering women to enjoy successful careers working within the golf industry.
The Women in Golf Charter specifically aims to:
Strengthen the focus on gender balance and provide a united position for the golf industry
Commit national federations and organisations to support measures targeted at increasing participation of women, girls and families in golf
Call upon signatories to take positive action to support the recruitment, retention and progression of women working at all levels of the sport
Set individual targets for national associations for participation and membership and reporting progress annually
Develop an inclusive environment for women and girls within golf
