WOMEN’S GOLF DAY 2021 SETS NEW GLOBAL RECORDS

A WEEK OF FUN, STARTING WITH RINGING THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE OPENING BELL AND CULMINATING WITH THOUSANDS ATTENDING LIVE EVENTS

(WEST PALM BEACH, FL, June 2, 2021) – Now in its 6th year, Women’s Golf Day (WGD) kicked off with an early start yesterday with its first ever event in New Zealand, one of the three new countries to join the WGD Community in 2021. The famous red & white of WGD was everywhere to be seen on social media continuing the tradition that has brought the event to over 1000 officially registered locations in over 80 countries. With #WomensGolfDay reaching 72.4M unique users, generating 87M impressions across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter the June 1st numbers simply speak for themselves!

Women’s Golf Day is unique; a one-day sporting and community celebration event, uniting women and girls through golf across the globe for 24 hours straight transcending race, religion, language, geography or economic status. This capped off an exciting week that started with the ringing of the opening bell at the NYSE and WGD Palooza, an online event everyone could attend.

“From the first event in Papakura, New Zealand to the last in Princeville, Hawaii, women and girls have been sharing really special moments because of golf,” explains Elisa Gaudet Founder of Women’s Golf Day. “WGD has increased in popularity year after year by engaging men and women and brands. This year we have really seen the power of partnership and what we can accomplish collectively. I am truly humbled by the individuals, locations, partners and organizations who continue to be committed to Women’s Golf Day and thank them for everything that they bring to the game and our events.” Japan and Argentina were also new host countries for 2021. Golfers still managed to join in the fun, even in places still restricted by COVID-19, joining people around the world showing their love of the game by posting photos using the hashtag #womensgolfday. 

2021 has seen another milestone smashed as the total number of participating venues reached 941, exceeding previous records. A staggering number of facilities including PGA TOUR Superstores, Topgolf venues, driving ranges, and traditional golf courses have now hosted Official WGD events. The diverse range of opportunities to learn and play golf offered through WGD undoubtedly contributes to its success.

Elisa explains, “Golf is not a one-size-fits-all sport anymore.  Women want options and thanks to our retail and brand partners, as well as the locations who host our official events, we can showcase golf at its very best. Women who have never played golf are beginning to see that in the 21st century it is a sport for everyone.  This is a really exciting time in golf’s evolution, and we are proud of the role we continue to play in making golf more accessible.”

Each year WGD experiences impressive growth in participation figures, and location numbers as well as its social media exposure.  This, combined with increasing industry support, indicates the gathering momentum for WGD, so if you have thought about joining this global movement do not delay!

Sponsorship opportunities are open for Women’s Golf Day VIP Program and the team is already preparing for the 7th year of this amazing event which will take place on June 7, 2022.

AWARD-WINNING ARCHITECT AGUSTIN PIZÁ PARTNERS WITH PGA TOUR CHAMPION AND GOLF CHANNEL ANALYST – BRANDEL CHAMBLEE

-The Pizá Chamblee collaboration will focus on distinct and key golf design projects-

(SAN DIEGO, CA. June 1, 2021) – Pizá Golf, internationally recognized as a world-class architecture and golf course design firm, proudly announced today that the company’s founder Agustin Pizá has joined forces with PGA TOUR Champion, television personality, and Golf Channel Analyst – Brandel Chamblee. The partnership will expand the Pizá Golf Branded Collection and their signature Pizá Chamblee golf designs will be made available on select projects.

Brandel brings to our partnership an acute understanding of golf course playability. As a former PGA TOUR Professional, he appreciates a golf course from a player’s standpoint but as an analyst his intellect provides some profound and unique insight. His perceptiveness will challenge me to become a better architect and I am up for that challenge. I am humbled and honoured to partner with such a gentleman, intellectual, analyst, arts and wine connoisseur who will ask for the best of me,” commented Agustin Pizá.

“Agustin Pizá or ‘Augie’ is a man with a strong vision striving in his design philosophy to create golf courses and golf experiences that will thrill the enthusiast and activist alike, while offering to those without a traditional golf background an intro into the game. His (4×6) design project in Desertica is just one example of his creative ingenuity and desire to give more than just lip service to the idea that a round of golf is becoming too time consuming and unsustainable ecologically. I have followed ‘Augie’ on social media for years and as I’ve become aware of his design philosophy, his keen understanding of past and present architectural principles and his interest in helping underprivileged kids discover golf in Mexico and South America through the First Tee and other like projects I was very humbled when Augie extended an invitation to join his team,” said Brandel Chamblee.

The first Pizá Chamblee signature design pushes the creative boundaries of multi-purpose golf. The duo is collaborating on a 24-hole golf resort with four distinct six-hole golf loops. The project is referred to as the “Butterfly Effect.” It is in Cuatro Cíenegas, Desertica described as an oasis in the desert with abundant springs that create marshes. Ground-breaking is estimated in Summer of 2022.

About Brandel Chamblee:

Brandel Chamblee joined Golf Channel in 2004, and currently serves as a studio analyst for Golf Central, as well as an analyst for the network’s Live From programming, airing on-site from the game’s biggest events. Chamblee also is an occasional analyst for Golf Channel’s PGA Tour tournament coverage. Chamblee has earned a reputation for being one of the most intellectual and well-researched personalities on Golf Channel and is known for his outspoken opinions on the game’s biggest stars.

A PGA Tour winner, Chamblee enjoyed a 15-year professional playing career that included more than $4 million in earnings. His career highlights include victories at the 1998 Greater Vancouver Open on the PGA Tour and the 1990 Ben Hogan New England Classic on the Web.com Tour. He also shared the first-round lead at the Masters in 1999 and finished within the top-100 on the PGA Tour money list for seven consecutive years. 

A three-time All-American at the University of Texas, Chamblee graduated in 1986 with a BS in Communications. A father of three, Chamblee lives in Scottsdale, Ariz.
