It’s said that in life the longest journey is the journey inward. In my view, the golf course is where a truly magical journey can begin.

Hi there, I’m Ashleigh, and I’m honored to be the first to officially welcome you to the new LPGA Women’s Network.

Whether you’re brand new to golf or were bitten by the bug years ago, we hope this community will inspire you to enjoy the game even more.

This space was created with you in mind – the woman who, like many of us, is in a “love-hate-love” relationship with the game of golf.

For many of us, the golf course is a place to unplug, unwind, reconnect, and sometimes, let’s admit it, as just a pit stop on the way to post-round cocktails. 😉

It’s a space that provides a different kind of release to different people. The golf course can be used as a place to spark new relationships, fire up our competitive spirit, or to find moments of Zen.

Despite our different motivations for pursuing this sometimes-maddening game, what we all have in common is that we recognize that the golf course is one of life’s greatest classrooms.

Think back to the very first time you picked up a golf club. The bad shots were more prevalent than the good. Yet despite having to muddle through unlucky-bounces, missed putts, and yes, even complete whiffs, you persisted.

We know the frustrations in golf are inevitable, yet we continue to chase those moments of sheer brilliance. Along the way we learn how to recover from set-backs, celebrate the good shots, and enjoy the precious moments with our playing partners, and ourselves.

Golf has taught us that it’s the journey and the progress to “better” that makes the difference. And it’s what keeps us coming back for more.

Like the golf course we hope you will consider the LPGA Women’s Network to be a special place where you can come to unwind, meet your community, ignite your passion for the game of golf, and inspire you for the game of life.

In return, we promise to remind you celebrate how far you’ve come and to help you remember why you started your journey with golf in the first place.

No matter where you are with the game, there’s a space for you here.
