The time for lady golfers and really good ones too is right now it seems. There are many more women out there right now thinking about playing golf some time soon than you might think and for all us men that has to be a good thing don’t you think?
In fact there are also probably many more ladies golfers playing on the greens across the nation than most would imagine. I know the answer that my wife would give about ladies golf and that would be “not enough already!” When it comes to golf many women take it up because that’s what their husbands or boyfriends play and because golf is now so popular you will find that many new women golf players are taking up the sport.
Not sure where you would go to get some good statistics on the real number of female players that we now have in our sport, but I will do some searching online and see what I can find. And of course there are now some very good female golfers and some of the most popular and famous players in the sport are women.
Also with their short skirts, earrings and youth on their side many of today’s new women golf stars are helping to give women’s golf a much younger and more fun image than golf has ever had in the past. And that really can’t be a bad thing in my opinion!
My favorites is Michelle Wie from Hawaii as she has a great attitude and some real talent as well. Some of the sexiest lady golfers are Natalie Gulbis, Paula Creamer and Anna Rawson and these girls are really bringing some glamour to what some still today consider and old man’s sport – but hey what do they know?
From a quick search in google I did find this statement on trends in womens golfing, apparently: ”women golfers are now taking up the game of golf at an earlier age than before and according to recent studies from the National Golf Foundation about 23% of women golfers are now aged between 18 and 29 compared with the statistics back in 2001 when actually only 15% of the total number of women golfers were found to be in that same age group“.
How times change and for the better I think… There may of course be many male golfers or even women golfers that disagree with and this wouldn’t be the first time lol.
To be honest the more varied a the gane is and that includes all the different characters that play golf then for me the more interesting and fun it will be so come on you female non-golders – why not give this great game a go? It’s healthy exercise and a great way to make new firneds and of course for all of us that already play regularly is a really fun way to spend time outdoors.
So ladies, please find your nearest club and join up!
