The business cards have been a really convenient way to spread the word when we just run into women at the course. No searching for a pen and paper and hoping you remember the facebook group name correctly.
I played a tournament in Seattle last summer and had a blast with the ladies in my division, but there were only 3 of us. It has been really exciting to see women's golf grow in Oregon and wish you the best in growing up North. Cindy and I are totally available to help you out any way we can.
We had a great deal of success with Ladies Nights in Spokane several years back. Jaymie and I were pretty solid about advetising and showing up every Tuesday evening at HighBridge to welcome new gals who wanted to play...or who's boyfriends wanted them to play better but didn't have the patience to coach them. (Sorry...just sayin)
We had a blast! Lot's of different ladies showed up after they realized how encouraging we were and how much they could improve with a little guidance.
We spread the word with flyers and word of mouth when ever we'd see gals on the course.
It takes a few dedicated individuals to make a committment but it's worth it.
Bout time to do it again in Spokane and give some of those ladies a chance to "give back" to new gals!!!
