Aussie women swap fairways for golf careers
Four Australian women are inspiring others in their switch to careers in the golf industry after touring professionally.
In a case study by the R&A, the transition from playing tournaments to other roles within the golf industry has been highlighted through four Aussie women emerging as future leaders.
“It’s great that the case studies are showcasing women in golf and how there are many pathways available after playing professionally,” said Golf Australia’s female pathway manager Stacey Peters, herself a past Vic Open champ and dual winner on the Ladies European Tour.
“All of the women have come from playing backgrounds at some point yet now we’re all in the golfing industry in different roles which is great to see.”
“I’m happy to see Golf Australia put more of a focus towards trying to get more female coaches involved in high performance so that other coaches can also see that pathway.”
Peters, Bree Arthur, Katy Jarochowicz and Emily McLennan share their stories to encourage more women to explore work and volunteering opportunities in the golf industry.
