What can we look for from WOCG in the near future?

We’re looking to chart a rededicated path for increased minority women participation in the game of golf while creating a ‘thirst’ for sustained focused development. We’re also in the works of developing a strategic partnership with Executive Women Golf Association (EWGA), to discuss efforts to mentor, train and collaborate on initiatives to grow the game of golf for women, minorities, the millennial and the new beginner golfer. Golf. My Future. My Game and WOCG recently held discussions with Pam Swensen, CEO, EWGA to discuss collaboration efforts. EWGA is the largest amateur golf association providing organized golf activities, social and networking opportunities for in more than 120 cities in the United States and international locations including Bermuda, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, and Italy, the EWGA is active in hundreds of communities. In addition to these things, we’d like to distribute and market our new curriculum, WOCG Golf-On-The Golf Quick Reference Guide, to provide an instructional guided approach to getting started in golf.

What would you like readers to know about WOCG? How can you be found by those interested in getting started with golfing?
