love.golf and Head Coach Alastair Spink starred on Sky Sports during recent broadcast coverage of the AIG Women’s Open.
The 5-minute feature showcased a groundbreaking partnership between love.golf and the Muslim Golf Association which introduced hundreds of Muslim women to the game of golf over the past year.
Broadcast on Sky Sports (UK) and The Golf Channel (US), the feature highlights the stories of women who first attended a taster experience at AIG Women’s Open host venue, Walton Heath Golf Club.
The partnership between the Muslim Golf Association and love.golf, supported by Syngenta, aims to create safe and welcoming opportunities for Muslim women to try the game for the first time. Last year, UK-wide experiences hosted by the partnership attracted more than 1,200 sign-ups.
“We can do things just the same”
Mona Abdul-Cader, one of the participants at Walton Heath who appears in the feature, said: “Sure, we have a different set of rules and everything, but we can do things just the same.
“Sometimes things are a little out of reach and when you’re invited to it, it makes a big difference.”
The feature also highlights the impact golf has had on the women and their families, including Shumona Rahman, whose daughter was so taken by the game she insisted on having a golf-inspired birthday cake!
love.golf is committed to creating opportunities for women from all backgrounds to experience the game.
