Get your daughters into golf

The unique bond between father and daughter only strengthens on a golf course.

Author and keen golfer Roland Merullo faced an issue that confronts many new parents.

He simply couldn’t fathom missing his daughters’ youth, so his love of golf appeared set to be shelved.

That is, until he had a brainwave that could – and should – revolutionise golf.

“The plan I came up with, not especially original, was to introduce our girls to the game and hope they grew to enjoy it,” Merullo writes in this month’s Australian Golf Digest.

It’s a different twist, but addresses the same crucial topic as Golf Australia chief executive James Sutherland spoke of in the magazine’s November edition when he had one phrase for golfing dads who don’t share their sporting passion with their daughters: “Why not?”

It’s gaining momentum as a topic among those driven to see GA’s Vision 2025 policy – to address the fundamental imbalance in golf by drawing more women and girls into the sport – succeed as our working world evolves.
