Mission

To grow participation in golf among women who are connected to the game.

The Women’s Task Force strategic planning committee, under the leadership of Jane Geddes, has completed its strategic plan with a primary focus on increasing participation in the game among women through creating a culture of inclusion and strengthening access to the game for women and girls.

The Women’s Task Force has created Programming and Communications sub-committees. Cathy Harbin is chairing Programming and Hollie West is chairing Communications.
