Special Sports Events Highlight Women's Golf Month
6 Jun, 2017
Troon®, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, will celebrate “Troon Women’s Golf Month” throughout the month of June at Troon facilities around the world. While Troon focuses on growing participation among all genders and age groups throughout the year, Troon facilities, Troon Golf Academies and their respective teaching professionals are joining together to host introductory golf clinics, fun social events, and special playing opportunities all month long. Now in its third year, the goal of Troon Women’s Golf Month is to introduce more golfers to the game.
Examples of Troon Women’s Golf Month programming include:
Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club - Maricopa, Arizona: Troon Women’s Golf Month group lessons every Saturday in June from 8 AM - 9 AM for $20 per adult. Plus, a complimentary Junior Clinic will be running concurrently so mom can drop off the kids to learn the game.
The Club at Cordillera - Vail, Colorado: Tim Mahoney, Troon’s Global Director of Education will be conducting two events a week for Women’s Golf Month: Margarita Monday and Cosmo Wednesday.
Saadiyat Beach Golf Club - Abu Dhabi, U.A.E: Every Monday in June Mom’s Play for only AED $100, and receive complimentary use of the practice facilities. Optional participation in Monday Ladies Competition. Ladies Learn Golf Package (4 individual golf lessons for AED $1000 plus they can bring a guest for free).
Silverado Resort - Napa, California: “Mimosa Moms” clinics every Friday throughout the month of June. Plus, Margarita Mondays in June (with Junior Clinics running concurrently so mom can drop off the kids to learn the game too). Silverado’s Ladies Crash Course is a three hour introduction to golf aimed at getting out on the course as soon as possible.
During the month of June (and throughout the year), Troon facilities will continue to offer new “Get Into Golf” clinics. The Get Into Golf program provides all the tools necessary to give golf a test run, including golf clubs and golf balls, practice range time, a weekly ‘intro to golf’ clinic and ending with a three-hole test run - so participants can get a taste of what it’s like to be on a golf course in a friendly, fun and non-competitive atmosphere.
“The goal with Women’s Golf Month and our other ‘Play Troon’ initiatives is to make the entry point into golf more accessible, inviting and fun, while introducing more players to the game,” said Mike Ryan, executive vice president, co-chief operating officer, Troon. “Our Troon facilities and teaching professionals will amplify their efforts in June to grow the game through specific playing opportunities, Nine & Dines, and additional Get Into Golf clinics.”
