Hampshire Ladies Golf (HLG) became a signatory of England Golf and the R&A’s Women in Golf Charter in February 2022, after we submitted a detailed proposal outlining our plans to help grow female golf participation in the County, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Wight.
We are committed to playing our part in developing a culture that values women’s involvement in every aspect of the sport. We have made a number of commitments and we hope that their combined effect will help encourage more women and girls to play the game and pursue careers in the golfing industry. We are passionate about promoting the Charter and hope that our actions will encourage our affiliated clubs to make similar commitments and become Charter signatories. Here are more details about the R&A Women in Golf Charter.
