In order to create an opportunity for more black women to experience golf, supported by the Caribbean Golf Society EGC member Julia Regis hosted a series of 'taster' sessions which have had great success not just at Edgbaston but across the Midlands recieving local and national media coverage.
The programme seeks to introduce individuals to golf who haven’t had the experience of golf before and break down some of the perceptions of golf.
Running these taster sessions has increased the participation specifically for women of colour in the sport and changed some of the perceptions around golf as a sport.
This initiative highlights the need for an inclusive and diverse membership to any club and with this programme we hope to improve the diversity and inclusivity at Edgbaston Golf Club.
