Boringdon Park is an official signatory of the Women in Golf charter.
The R&A launched the Women in Golf Charter in May 2018, supported by England Golf and other organisations from across the industry.
What is the purpose of the Women in Golf Charter?
- To encourage more women and girls to play the game and join clubs
- To inspire more families to enjoy golf as a group leisure activity
- To open up more opportunities for women to work within the golf industry
In November 2020 The R&A, backed by England Golf, unveiled the #FOREeveryone campaign.
This new campaign builds upon the introduction of the R&A’s Women in Golf Charter two years ago to give counties, clubs and facilities further information and resources to start making changes that can encourage more women and girls into golf.
This is just the start of a long-term drive to bring more women and girls into the game. A full consumer campaign has been designed and will launch to full effect in 2021.
The campaign will encourage facilities and organisations to sign up to the Women in Golf Charter and work towards the achievement of their own ‘Charter Commitments’. Promotional assets will be made available to those signatories to assist in achieving those commitments, while best practice examples will be regularly shared.
#FOREeveryone is a necessary approach to change the culture of golf, challenging some of the prevailing stereotypes and behaviours, which could safeguard the game for future generations through increased participation and improved operations.
