A blog rotates stories about WOC, news and insights from the world of golf, fashion and fitness advice, and game-improvement tips.

“Women today require the ability to plan and adjust their daily schedules on the go,” says Donna Hoffman, Founder and President of WOC.  “Our new website makes registering for events, engaging with local women and experiencing the golf lifestyle easier and more rewarding than ever.“

The launch comes during WOC’s “Cheers to 10 Years” celebration commemorating a decade of empowering more than 30,000 women through golf.  By attending WOC events, joining its Facebook community and planning golf calendars on Meet Up, women are improving skills, building confidence, and growing social and business circles.

“Women on Course is uniting a demographic that truly loves this game,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of Billy Casper Golf, owner of WOC.  “It’s taking women beyond the scorecard, showing them the value of golf is in new friendships, physical fitness, family time, personal fulfillment and so much more.”

Corporate America is also playing a role in WOC expansion.  Fortune 500 companies including Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, Accenture and Mass Mutual are leveraging WOC's employee development programs and corporate memberships to further the professional growth of female executives, connect with the community and provide event sponsorship opportunities.
