WOMEN'S GOLF


Women and Girls in Golf Charter

 
June 2018 
 
Our goal: To increase the number of women and girls engaged in golf.

New Zealand Golf is committed to transforming golf into a sport that is highly engaging, accessible and fully inclusive for women and girls at every level.

The need for increased gender diversity in golf is a societal responsibility and it’s also the right thing to do.

There is a clear ethical need for change and the potential benefits of growing the sport through more women and girls playing and working in golf are substantial.

New Zealand Golf strongly supports the R&A’s Women in Golf Charter and wishes to make its own commitment to increase the number of women and girls engaged in golf.

We call on everyone involved in golf to play their part in developing a culture that values women’s involvement in every aspect of the sport, from participating to pursuing a career.

New Zealand Golf commits to:

• Playing a leadership role that sets the example and standards by which our sport is led.
• Strongly promoting and advocating for more women and girls playing, working and volunteering in golf.
• Advocating for increased opportunities for women in governance at all levels of golf.
• Developing programmes and initiatives that are focused on achieving the goal set out in this charter.
• Enhancing perceptions of golf as a healthy, accessible and inclusive sport for women and girls.
• Encouraging clubs, facilities and the wider golfing sector in New Zealand to be more welcoming, inclusive and accessible for women and girls.
• Reporting on progress annually.

WOMEN'S CLUB BASED COMPETITIONS 
 
HOME LINKS 18 AND 9-HOLE COMPETITIONS CANCELLED FOR 2020
 
With the further restrictions being put on as we move to COVID-19 Level 4, to avoid further disruption and re-scheduling of club programmes and keeping players safe, we have cancelled the Home Links competitions for this year.   
 
This includes the Coronation Medal, Aotearoa Cup, Veterans Trophy, Best Gross Cup, the Nancy MacCormick Foursomes, the 9-hole Sue Bunt Salver and the Junior Best Gross and Best Net.
 
LGU COMPETITIONS
 
LGU is a club-based competition only and therefore it will be at a club's discretion whether to make any changes to cancel, postpone or re-schedule any rounds for this year.

NATIONAL TEAMS CHAMPIONSHIP DISTRICT FINALS CANCELLED FOR 2020 

Further to our e-mail sent out on 18 March re COVID-19 and cancellation or postponement of events up until 5 May, with 10 District Associations holding their National Teams Championship District Final on or prior to 4 May we have made the decision to cancel the District Finals for this year. 

In some areas we are aware teams have significant distances to travel, and with some teams which maybe staying overnight in motel accommodation etc, taking into consideration the health, safety and well-being of all, we are erring on the side of caution in our decision to cancel.

If your club has played the club competition and sent your results and entry fees to your District Association, the entry fees will be refunded.
