Do You Have What It Takes to be "Women-Friendly?"

Rate Yourself

Does your facility?  (One point for each "yes")

1.1. Offer affordable introductory group lessons?

2.2. Provide clubs at no charge for beginner lessons?

3.  Advertise programs and events for women using the word "fun" or "no pressure" or "beginners welcome"

4.4.  Designate a visible section of the bulletin board (in pro shop or locker room) to promote women's events and news? 

5.5.  Offer written handouts with basic information for new golfers including etiquette and pace of play.

6.  Offer on-course playing lessons (or supervised play) for new golfers at affordable prices.

7.  Offer 9-hole rounds (or shorter) at 9-hole rates (or less)?

8.  Offer a choice of playing formats in leagues and outings for non-competitive women golfers as well as competitive golfers?

9.  Provide customer-service training to your employees specifically about women customers. 

10.  Attractively display women's golf clothes and accessories in a visible portion of the pro shop.

How Did You Do?
Add points – maximum 10
DEDUCT three points from total if you do NOT have clean, attractive women's rest rooms both on AND off the course.
 
BONUS!!!!   ADD 5 points for  Diaper-changing table in men’s rest rooms.  That’s also “family-friendly”
 
8-10 points = definitely "women-friendly"
5-7 points =  barely "women-friendly"
less than 5 points = a long way to go.
