Event Description

"Breaking New Ground: Women and Golf Course Architecture" Now Open at USGA Global Headquarters Since the late 1800s, a small but influential group of women have carved a space of their own in golf, using the one tool that most influences a player's experience: the golf course. The USGA Golf Museum's new exhibit, "Breaking New Ground: Women and Golf Course Architecture," explores this rarely discussed segment of golf history and recounts unique narratives of female leadership, initiative and innovation. Artifacts from the museum collection, in addition to loans from the United Kingdom and local historical archives, illustrate how women have influenced golf course design theory and played a role in creating more equitable and enjoyable experiences for all who play the game.
