Madinaty Golf Club in Egypt and Victoria Golf Resort in Sri Lanka have joined Troon International facilities from the Middle East in signing the R&A’s Women in Golf Charter.
The charter is a global initiative aimed at increasing the number of women and girls who participate in golf and creating more opportunities for women to work in the golf industry.
DJ Flanders, Vice President Troon International, said: “We are thrilled that Victoria Golf Resort and Madinaty Golf Club have both signed The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter, demonstrating the facilities commitment to increasing the number of women and girls who participate in golf in Sri Lanka and Egypt.
“Their work to introduce local women and girls to the game of golf and engage them in the entire golf club experience through accessibility can make a positive impact on the future of the sport in Sri Lanka and Egypt to ensure that golf remains accessible and enjoyable for everyone.”
22 golf clubs in UAE on the charter
Jackie Davidson, Director of Golf Development at The R&A said: “The Women in Golf Charter has really galvanised the golf industry around a shared vision for golf and driven change. We are delighted to have Victoria Golf Resort and Madinaty Golf Club pledge their commitment to women’s golf and join over 1,300 organisations worldwide in making it a more accessible and inclusive sport.
“Thanks to the Charter, we are already seeing a positive impact on golf participation numbers around the world, a trend we hope that Sri Lanka and Egypt will also experience.”
It was announced back in June that all 22 golf clubs in UAE had signed The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter to demonstrate their collective commitment to growing golf among women and girls in the region.
