Women in Golf Charter. 

The R&A launched the Women in Golf Charter to the industry in May 2018. It aims to increase women and girls’ participation and membership in golf, encourage more families to enjoy golf as a leisure activity and encourage more opportunities for women to work in the golf industry.

To achieve this goal and to enable women to flourish throughout golf, the R&A recognises the need for a fundamental shift in culture. There is a clear ethical need for change and the potential economic benefits of growing the sport through more women and girls playing, are substantial.

The R&A commits to playing a leading role in this process and to working with affiliates, partners and the wider golf industry towards achieving this goal. The Charter specifically aims to:  Strengthen the focus on gender balance and provide a united position for the golf industry.  Commit national federations and organisations to support measures targeted at increasing participation of women, girls and families in golf.  Call upon signatories to take positive action to support the recruitment, retention and progression of women working at all levels of the sport.  Set individual targets for national associations for participation and membership and reporting progress annually.  Develop an inclusive environment for women and girls within golf.
