Our HERstory......

As working professionals, we often hear stories about what occurs on a golf course. This is the location where we are told people get together to build relationships over a fun game of golf. They discuss business and make on the spot deals. They open their network and offer assistance in removing barriers to your success!

As a woman I wanted to understand what really occurred on the green and see what if anything I was missing. I called a friend for a lesson, posted pictures to social media, and soon found an invite to attend an event to represent the organization that I worked for. This was it! This was my chance to learn of the secret society that we call golf. 

I attended my first outing and was amazed at the number of corporate executives present. What was most surprising to me was the actual conversations and the level (amount) of business deals that were being discussed and decided on outside of a corporate conference room. 

After surveying the room, I realized that of the 200+ attendees I was 1 of 6 diverse people and the only black woman in the room.  It was also very apparent to me that I did not know enough to speak on behave of those missing from the room and this represented a missed opportunity for those not in attendance. People were missing opportunities. Women and businesses were missing opportunities! But why?

It was then that Hit Like A Girl was created. I wanted to create a space for Black women/women to learn the sport of golf. I would build a bridge to close the gap of missed opportunities on the green.  To date we have had 5 cohorts or roughly 60 women enrolled in our program! We intend to increase program offerings, participates and the states that we are operating in during the 2024 golf season.
