Black Girls Golf was just an idea in 2011. After spending several years in Corporate America and noticing how many opportunities were available to her male colleagues who played golf, Black Girls Golf Founder, Tiffany Mack Fitzgerald, set out to learn the game and create opportunities to build better professional relationships and connect with people in positions of power and influence.
Tiffany learned the game and was intimidated by the rules and the learning curve seemed impossible. She felt invisible yet again. She set out to change that for herself and others. In 2013 Tiffany invited her friends to join her on a golf course in Atlanta. Twenty-six women showed up and Black Girls Golf went from idea to a sisterhood.
Black Girls Golf is headquartered in Greater Atlanta with more than 4,000 members in the U.S and abroad. Since we don't have chapters we've eliminated the inconvenience of chapter meetings and mandatory monthly dues. Instead, we've created a learning & playing community for you to be part of and you can plan meet ups and play dates when it's convenient for YOU. (Use the EVENTS tab to post your own meetup on the Black Girls Golf calendar.)
Black Girls Golf has come a long way since 2013. Tiffany has been featured in Women’s Golf Journal, Black Enterprise Magazine and sports and business radio to promote diversity in golf and to share her experience as a golfer.
We are not a competitive league, we're a global network of like-minded women who want to learn, practice, and play golf. We'd love for you to join us. We have everything you need to be the golfer you want to be.
WHAT WE DO
Did you know, Black women make up less than one percent of the industry's workforce and less than five percent of recreational golfers?
We're creating a movement to increase the number of Black women and girls who play golf and who work in the industry.
HOW IT WORKS
BGG gives you a platform to connect with other women who want to learn, practice and play golf. We do that through our partners, PGA & LPGA professionals, who offer hands-on golf instruction, ladies-only golf outings, and networking events in a fun and supportive atmosphere. We can also work with your private group to host fun learning clinics and events. Tiffany is also available to speak at your next event or host a private golf clinic.Click here to book Tiffany.
HOW CAN YOU BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT?
Plan a meetup, attend a BGG class, introduce someone else to the game, join our community, or simply follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and use #BGG or #blackgirlsgolf to tag your golf photos.
