Eatontown golf academy seeks to get more women interested in the sport
A golf academy in Eatontown is trying to get more women interested in the sport.
According to the National Golf Foundation, only 24% of golfers who play on a course are women.
The Women’s Academy at Golf Cave is offering small group classes to teach women how to golf. The sessions are taught by Monmouth University Women’s Golf Coach Michelle Melia.
Since starting the program in January, Melia says that the response has been tremendous, and she says that she does not know of any other programs like this in New Jersey.
“We have so many women now who are graduating college, getting graduate degrees, who are now in the business world – this gives them such a great opportunity to take their business to the next level,” Melia says.
Melia says that she encourages more women to give the sport a try.
