Doha, 31 May 2020 - Education City Golf club is taking part in a global event that encourages women and girls to try golf for the first time, while experienced lady golfers can play and engage with women interested in the sport.
Women’s Golf Day (WGD) is a single-day event scheduled to introduce new female participants to golf and celebrate existing players by joining them together irrespective of race, religion, language, ethnicity, or location. WGD has become a global movement and celebrates women and girls learning golf skills that last a lifetime and being part of a larger global community.
“We decided to be a part of this Global event because we are promoting Healthy and Sporty Lifestyle among women and girls in Qatar. Golf is excellent sport for losing weight and keeping fit. Golf supports mental health and helps fight depression and it is great to maintain mental focus as we age,” said Gordana Popovic Vincic, lady golfer and Sales and Marketing Manager at ECGC,
World Women’s Golf Day this year features a virtual golf day on the June 2 where Education City will broadcast an online discussion with Catriona Mathew, Solheim Cup Captain 2019 & 2021, and Michael Braidwood, General Manager of Education City Golf Club. The online discussion will be partnering with In the Game and discussing relevant topics about women’s golf and health featuring female golfers in the community of Qatar.
