I founded Black Girls Golf 2011after spending several years in Corporate America and noticing how many opportunities were available to my male colleagues who played golf. In fact many of my colleagues didn’t even know my name. I was referred to as, “the black girl in marketing”.
I understood she needed to build better relationships with my male colleagues and superiors at work. But how would I do that? Golf was the answer. As I became a more experienced golfer, I noticed how few Black women were involved in the sport so I decided to create a safe space for us to learn the game and build the confidence to get out there and play.
Black Girls Golf is headquartered in Greater Atlanta with more than 3,000 members in the U.S and abroad.I've been featured in Women’s Golf Journal, Black Enterprise Magazine and sports and business radio sharing my experience as a golfer and helping other women experience the rewards of golfing.
