Our aim is to encourage everyone to play golf.

We launched #FOREeveryone as a campaign to inspire more women and girls of all ages and abilities into playing the sport and go onto enjoy it throughout their lives. 

It is supported by England Golf, Golf Ireland, Scottish Golf, Wales Golf and the PGA, meaning that there are over 700 facilities in these countries ready to welcome women and girls into the sport.

About #FOREeveryone

FOREeveryone aims to unite the golf industry in Great Britain and Ireland behind a single call to action that inspires more women and girls to play golf It was launched in 2020 in support of the aims of The R&A Women in Golf Charter and to achieve greater gender balance in the sport It calls for:
  • a forward-thinking approach that drives tangible change across the industry
  • enhancing gender diversity
  • addressing participation decline 
  • improving the financial prosperity of facilities and organisations – for everyone
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, when people were looking for outdoor pursuits which could be enjoyed safely, we saw a heightened interest, including from women and girls. In fact, 25% of the women who played golf in 2020 were doing so for the first time. It’s important to ensure this interest is maintained, so women and girls enjoy the sport for many years to come.”
