Some comments from attendees:

“Excellent and inspiring evening – thank you” – Women’s Committee member

“Interesting times ahead but all for the good and agree the hardest part is taking the first step, but once the move is made all will roll on!” – Club membership staff member (female)

“Sincerely thank you for the amazingly uplifting presentation you hosted last night. It was just what we needed, and so much appreciated. You spoke so clearly and the content was perfect. Sadly our club has experienced a few hic ups during the past year or so, as have many others, but with all the positive and challenging ideas you presented I feel it’s onward and upward for us all” – Women’s President

“I found it very informative and it highlighted some gaps we have in our structure. I also think many of the initiatives to create membership growth within women and girls can flow into other areas.” – Club President (male)

“Having played golf for nearly 60 years in both country and metropolitan areas, I have experienced all of which you spoke, but the love of the game and all that goes with it has been enough to keep me trying to encourage women and girls to join me.  This attention to women and girls has been long overdue.” District board member (female)

“You gave me hope that the future for Women and Girls in our great sport is not only possible but achievable.” – Club President (male)

“Your presentation was very informative and this movement is long overdue.” Male attendee
