KNUTSFORD Golf Club have appointed a “Charter Champion” to help raise the numbers of women in the sport.

They have taken on Di Finn to co-ordinate the plan to get more women and girls interested and involved in the sport.

Finn, a former hockey player who took up golf in her 40s, said: “I am excited to be leading the Women in Golf Charter campaign.

“We are an open, welcoming and inclusive club and its fantastic to see our members so enthusiastic to deliver the aims of the charter.

“As we move out of lockdown, it is clear to me that golf will undoubtedly help develop healthier lifestyles and I am looking forward to seeing an increase in women members.

“We will be running our popular Get into Golf programme so look out for details of that via our web site and social media channels.”

The campaign begins by distributing a toolkit resource, designed to provide guidance on operational and marketing improvement to help attract more women and girls to the sport.

Finn continued: “Knutsford Golf Club is now ready to contribute actively towards commitments that can develop the culture of golf to the benefit of all of those who play and love the sport.”

The pledge keeps with the founding principles of the R&A Women in Golf Charter which began in 2018.

As part of the charter, Knutsford have committed to increase the number of women and girls playing and working in golf, enable women to flourish within golf and support necessary cultural change.

The Cheshire club, who regard themselves as progressive, have received full backing from England Golf, who will assist in enabling the club to develop and expand their policy in the future.

Knutsford have committed to continuing to make strides towards further developing a welcoming and inspiring environment for all women and girls at the club.
