NWGA

 
National Women’s Golf Alliance, LLC

The National Women’s Golf Alliance unites three highly respected women’s golf organizations -- the EWGA, Golf for Cause LLC, and Jan Bel Jan Golf Course Design.  The mission of the NWGA is to increase the number of women playing golf and engagement levels of existing women golfers.  Using their combined years of expertise, data and observation regarding what women golfers want, need and expect for an enhanced playing experience, the NWGA has developed a base of standards and best practices to help golf facilities attract more women golfers and generate more revenue.

The NWGA certification program assesses golf facilities on standards and best practices that make the facility welcoming and attractive to women.  Facilities are evaluated in five key areas:  Golf Course Playability, Customer Service, Golf Course Amenities, Facility Amenities and Golf Programs.  Facilities that achieve a score of 80 percent or higher in at least three of these areas receive certification.  The Rolling Out the Green Carpet™ designation comes with publicity and marketing, including an insignia to use with promotional materials and advertising.  Among facilities evaluated by NWGA are PGA Golf Club, Innisbrook Resort and Reynolds Plantation.  

As a partner in the National Women's Golf Alliance, Jan uses her experience as a golf course architect to evaluate courses for playability by the female golfer, from exellent to "bogey-plus" players.  Ms. Bel Jan analyzes courses with regard to length and layout of individual golf holes as well as topography and hazards, and she offers refinements that can improve pace of play and allow playability fairness for a wider range of skill levels.  Jan assesses courses for function, fun, maintenance considerations, keeping golfers in the game, and attracting new golfers to the game, inlcuding women, families, novices and slow clubhead speed players.
