“On behalf of Women’s Golf Day, its ambassadors and hosts spanning the globe, I am honored to receive such a coveted award from the European Golf Course Owners Association,” said WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet, CEO of Executive Golf International. “We extend our thanks to all EGCOA members who were participating hosts in the 2016 Women’s Golf Day and we look forward to having them with us again for our second annual WGD June 6, 2017. Together, we can continue to growth the game of golf in a positive and powerful way.”
