Free Simulator Golf and Instruction For Women’s History Month

Free Simulator Golf and Instruction For Women’s History Month

Women are 50% of the population and perhaps 20% of golfers. In my mind, the most efficient way to grow the game of golf is to increase the women’s participation rate.

Five Iron Golf, a national chain of golf simulator facilities, is leaning into that by offering women complementary simulator time and instruction every Wednesday in March.

March is Women’s History Month.

I had a chance to tour Five Iron Golf’s Detroit location last year. It’s pretty neat. They’ve got great simulators, putting greens, food and drink for a complete experience.

In the northern climes, March can be iffy for rounds of golf, so jump starting your game at a simulator is a good idea.

The full press release is below.

Five Iron Golf Celebrates Women’s History Month with Free Golf for Women

All U.S. Locations to Offer Complimentary Simulator Time, Expert Instruction and Other Special Programming Every Wednesday in March

(NEW YORK) – Five Iron Golf, the nation’s leading urban golf experience, will celebrate Women’s History Month in March by inviting women to play free golf at all of its U.S. locations via two branded campaigns.

Every Wednesday, women are invited to reserve complimentary time on Five Iron’s TrackMan simulators during normal business hours through an initiative titled “Women’s Wednesdays.” Participants that attend the “Gals of the Greens” evening events will also enjoy access to play, mingle and learn between 5 and 8 p.m. every Wednesday, with roaming instruction from Five Iron coaches, exclusive membership and instruction offers, a free welcome drink, and appearances by Five Iron female influencers at select locations.

“When we started Five Iron Golf back in 2017, one of our goals was to create a place that made golf accessible for everyone,” said Jared Solomon, CEO and co-founder of Five Iron Golf. “As we’ve grown to more than 20 locations across the country, we’ve remained committed to this founding principle and are excited to continue our leading role in fostering female participation through these two offerings.”

According to the National Golf Foundation (NGF), the number of women players jumped 15% between 2020 and 2022. This increase of 820,000 players is significant compared to the 2% increase (465,000) for men over the same time period. The NGF also found that females now represent an impressive 25% of the U.S.’s 25.6 million golfers. It attributed this growth, in part, to an increase in golf entertainment venues – like Five Iron – that provide a fun, more social and less-intimidating environment to learn the game than traditional golf facilities.
