personal, handwritten invitations on linen stationery and pay for a hotel room with a hot tub for each of us...
seriously, kris... putting the word out like this is a really good start... just let the ladies know that you're looking for them.
also, if you, or someone involved in your club is on facebook, go and like the PDGA Women's Committee page and then you can post something on our wall about your event... girls looooove facebook so that is a really great way to reach a large audience of women (honestly, i think there's like 2 gals who read this forum regularly and a handful more who look at it every now and again).
also... you could go ahead and save a certain number of spots just for women until 2 weeks before the event when you then open those spots up to the boys... and then you can advertise that you are running a "women friendly" event, which is how Shavonne does it for the Hope Open
