PLAY GOLF AMERICA UNIVERSITY
Diversifying the game with an emphasis on bringing more women into the game is a strategic plan element for The PGA of America. Sharing the same goal of growing women’s golf, the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) has become an active partner of the PGAU program.
The EWGA has a mission to connect women to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and for fun. The EWGA has nearly 125 local Chapters throughout the United States that facilitate golf education programs, organized play, and more for members and non-members alike. The EWGA also conducts a variety of other regional and national opportunities for members to learn, play and enjoy golf throughout the country and via online venues.
As part of PGAU, universities are asked to promote EWGA’s Young Professional Membership by distributing membership applications and directing students to apply online.
In addition to golf-related benefits, joining the EWGA will positively influence the professional careers of students as they actively network with successful business leaders at their local Chapter and throughout the coast-to-coast membership of EWGA.
The PGA encourages each institution to invite an EWGA representative to share information with classes about the opportunities EWGA offers and share personal stories on how golf has enhanced their life both personally and professionally. Go to EWGA.com to find a contact in your area, or contact Josie Artymovich firstname.lastname@example.org, EWGA Golf Programs Manager.
Criteria for the PGAU EWGA element:
- Promote EWGA Young Professional Membership to all PGAU participants
- Consider inviting an EWGA representative to make a presentation on how golf and the EWGA has benefited their lives both personally and professionally
