From the Fairway, By Christine Speedy published in print.
Now in its fourth year, American Express Womenâ€™s Golf Month is a collaboration of the top U.S. golf organizations aimed at increasing the participation of women in golf. Scheduled to be held at golf facilities across the U.S. from Sunday, June 1 through Monday, June 30, 2008, American Express Womenâ€™s Golf Month offers women 14 years of age and older free golf lessons and golf-related networking and social activities customized by each host facility.
Last year Executive Womenâ€™s Golf Association Members played for free at Doral Golf Resort & Spa as part of the Amex promotion. What a great opportunity! It was a beautiful day and the pro shop extended a big discount to all players for their apparel. No matter what your golf level, everyone should take advantage of this event.
You can count on a local week-long series of fun and exciting golf and golf-related activities designed exclusively for women, and at a variety of locations including:
* Free golf lessons and clinics
* Networking receptions
* Golf rules and etiquette seminars
* Fashion shows
* On-course playing opportunities
* On-course golf instruction
