“We are very excited to be working with Topgolf again for Women’s Golf Day,” said Women’s Golf Day Founder, Elisa Gaudet. “They have been a tremendous partner and are the perfect venue to welcome women who are experienced golfers and those who’ve never picked up a club. This partnership helps support our mission to grow the opportunities and exposure women have to golf through mindful collaboration with the industry and its leaders.”
This energetic, beginner-friendly 60-minute class is built around a variety of drills to improve body motions and make each individual’s golf swing intuitive and free-flowing. One hour of instruction will include:
- 10 Minutes – Warm-up and review the basics (grip, stance, posture, wedges, irons and woods)
