Ladies within the Golf Trade

Today much less and fewer persons are making the trouble to play golf. This pattern is inflicting golf programs throughout the nation to both shut down and switch into fields or promote out to builders to construct condominium complexes or housing communities with the land. I ask myself, what’s inflicting this lower for the love of the sport? Usually golf solely takes about four hours or extra to play 18 holes, and folks use the excuse that they’re too busy for that. They’ve households and jobs that they work additional time (typically even on weekends) and say that enterprise offers are hardly ever made on the golf course anymore. So, who’s going to save lots of the sport and improve the as soon as widespread sport? The reply is ladies! Ladies must become involved in golf in order that they’ll spend time with their males and buddies and have enjoyable! The golf business, and society on the whole, has not but picked up on this want. The business is making it tough for ladies to be concerned within the sport as an alternative of attempting to capitalize on the necessity or encourage it.

For instance, I walked right into a golf store the opposite day, and so they solely had merchandise for males: males’s shirts, pants, sneakers, and hats. I requested the man working, “Do you could have something right here for ladies?” He stated “we’ve got ladies’s gloves.” So not less than they knew that girls would wish a glove to play golf.

Presently, the business is selling ladies in golf by urging the youthful technology to become involved. They supply golf day camps, Ladies Golf LPGA, and junior leagues for teenagers to develop a ardour for the sport, with the hopes that they’ll carry it into maturity. But it surely simply stops there, they do not prolong the game to younger adults and girls. They’re simply hoping that these little ladies will develop up and nonetheless wish to be concerned. However there’s little to no encouragement in direction of ladies to be concerned after junior camps are over. Possibly they suppose that the subsequent technology will simply create one thing. Effectively as you possibly can see, it hasn’t.

Golf is an effective way for folks to spend time collectively, whether or not it’s with family and friends, and even as a means for strangers to get to know each other. This sport appears to segregate women and men. It has was ladies enjoying golf in teams with different ladies and men enjoying golf with different males, and it has created division within the sport. For instance, once I go on trip with different {couples}, the blokes wish to play golf, and the women wish to buy groceries, or simply lay on the seashore. As a girl who performs golf, I really feel torn between spending time with my buddies and golf, the sport I really like. If I play with the blokes, they really feel like I’m invading their man time so it’s not very inviting and I do not get to spend time with my buddies. There’s barely any incentive or encouragement for ladies to play and so they really feel unwelcome. There’s nonetheless time to vary this behavior and produce life again to this thrilling sport, and I consider ladies are going to make the distinction.
