June is Women’s Golf Month! Women’s Golf Month launched in 2005 by the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA). Celebrated for the whole month of June, Women’s Golf Month is designed to bring more women to the golf community and to show women what a fun and inviting space the golf world offers. Golf is a great activity for women to get involved in, whether you play to network or to enjoy the socializing within a golf league.

Socialization and Networking Opportunities

Golfing isn’t just a sport for men to hang out with the boys on the weekends. Golfing provides a great opportunity to socialize, sure, but it is also a great way to network. It provides the opportunity to connect with clients—whether old or prospective—and it’s also a way you can bond with the leaders on your team. This might be one tool you want to add to your business arsenal. And why not invite the girls to play a round or two for girls’ weekend? It’s a great way for you all to get out and bond, too! You could even join a women’s golf league!

Get Outside and Exercise!

Golfing is the perfect excuse to get outside in that lovely summer sunshine. It also doubles as exercise, so you’re really reaping the benefits. It may not be comparable to an intense weight-lifting session, but you’ll spend hours walking and standing, balancing and swinging. You’ll not only burn calories, but you’ll have fun doing it. If you walk the entire 18 holes, some reports show you may be walking upwards of 5 miles and burning 2,000 calories. It might be a good chance for you to exercise your mind, too, with many individuals reporting that golf can be a meditative activity that clears their heads.

Learn Life Lessons

Golf can model life lessons, which makes it a great game for young women. With no referees, it teaches honesty and shows your character. The game relies on your internal and external ability, so it teaches you how to trust in yourself and feel confident in your skill. It can also teach you about resiliency.
