Overcoming Barriers in Golf with Women on Course


Posted on March 25, 2021 at 05:00 PM


For the past 16 years, Donna Hoffman has been introducing women across the country to the game of golf. Her company, Women On Course, acknowledges the tradition of golf as a male dominated sport and is working to break down the barriers women face getting into the game.

By placing the social and networking benefits of golf above competition, Women On Course has grown to a community of members and non-members of over 30,000 and hosts over 800 events a year in 14 different markets. The model of starting at the 19th hole (aka the clubhouse) to set women up for success works by decreasing potential obstacles and building confidence. Their exclusive online program, Fast Track to the First Tee takes beginners through every aspect of the game in less than a week. 

Whether new or seasoned golfers, members of Women on Course develop their skills, find golf events and clubs, and enjoy fun perks like exclusive travel events and discounts on apparel. 

Membership also includes access to an online networking directory for active women to meet, learn together, and support one another connecting around the game of golf.  Offering both social events like Sip & Swing and empowering talks like the upcoming “Breaking the Grass Ceiling” about combating gender inequality, it’s obvious why Hoffman shines as one of golf’s most influential and inspiring women. 

Her company is driving change for women, inviting them to get out of their comfort zone and discover their power on the course and in their lives.  

At Kinona, we are proud to be a partner of Women on Course (offering members a 25% discount!). We share the mission of providing women with a means to feel comfortable and confident on the course. 

We too know that the game doesn’t end after the 18th hole is played. Deeper conversations and relationships often develop back at the clubhouse. Women On Course offers members the courage, opportunity, and skills to show up and have powerful experiences. Women may walk in as strangers and leave as best friends. 

Golf might be a game, but it’s also a lifestyle. Having a supportive network can help you know what you need to before teeing off for the first time and have fun through the process.
