‘RAISING OUR GAME’ - #ThisGirlGolfs

A Video Campaign That Sets Out To Change Female Perception Of Golf

And Encourage Participation


Powered by National Club Golfer


Despite there being some great female players on the world stage, such as Charley Hull, Laura Davies, Annika Sorenstam and Paula Creamer, golf is often wrongly perceived as a Man’s game. #ThisGirlGolfs is designed to shift this perception and inspire participation by highlighting women that are already playing the game at all levels.

Golf is a game for all. Unlike any other sport, golf’s unique handicap system allows people of different abilities to play and compete together, making it a great game for women and men alike.


Be inspired, visit #ThisGirlGolfs


The PGA and England Golf are supporting #ThisGirlGolfs as part of their ‘Raising Our Game’ strategy. Committed to increasing the number of people that play golf regularly and reversing the decline of club members, England Golf recognise that Women and Girls are key to this success.

David Joy, CEO of England Golf, commented: “We are aware, like many other sports, golf faces some issues, there are significant trends in declining participation at all levels that we can’t ignore. With the help of #ThisGirlGolfs campaign, we hope to work together with the golfing community to encourage more women and girls into the sport and enjoy the benefits the game can give.”

Sandy Jones, CEO of The PGA added: “Golf is actually a very accessible, welcoming and enjoyable environment and we want to get that message across to women who may not have considered golf as an option. This is a great opportunity to both raise the profile of golf, break down myths and misconceptions and to actively encourage women of all ages to see golf as a realistic choice – whether that is for personal, professional, business or social reasons.”

#ThisGirlGolf features a series of different women and girls of all ages and backgrounds showing how they fit golf into their everyday lives and enjoy the game. Including established pro golfers Charley Hull and Henni Zuël, Ellie Lace, 15 year old amateur golfer and BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetti, We see tour pro’s traveling to practice sessions on the tube, girls honing their skills at urban driving ranges, a young girl sneaking into her brother’s bedroom to borrow his clubs and a father taking the time to teach his daughter how to play.

Ross Duncan at the Scottish Golf Union said, “We are supporting #ThisGirlGolfs because it’s important that the golfing community comes together to change perception and encourage female participation"

Charley Hull, professional golfer, commented: “I have always had a love of golf, picking up my first club aged five. It’s a fantastic game to play with friends, a great way to relax and get outdoors. It’s been great to be part of #ThisGirlGolfs I hope it will encourage girls to head down to their local driving range or golf club and give it a go.”

Eve Burton, Sports Publications LTD said “Golf is an amazing game, it is a modern and vibrant sport played by women and men and consumed in a variety of different ways. #ThisGirlGolfs is not reinventing the sport it is merely presenting in the way it deserves to be”
