June 6th sees women’s golf come to the fore with the International Women’s Golf day which celebrates women and girls playing golf and learning skills that last a lifetime.
Monifieth Golf Links, the Professionals and the lady club members have planned a number of events during that week designed to involve more women and girls in the game of golf, and to reaffirm the fun and friendships that female golfers of all ages and abilities can enjoy.
There are two events aimed at women and girls who are new to the game.

- The second event aimed at newcomers to the game is a fun putting event, to be held on Thursday 8th June between 6pm and 8pm. This is an opportunity to putt, meet women who play golf and listen to the experiences of golfers of all ages. Refreshments will be provided in the Grange Golf Club afterwards.
There are also two events aimed at women and girls who already play golf.
- The first one, on Tuesday 6th is a SIXES competition on the Ashludie course and anyone who has played golf before is welcome to come along, join in and compete over 6 holes. Refreshments will be available in the Monifieth Golf Club after the event.
