Rochester Place golf courseLakeshore’s Rochester Place Golf Club is the setting for a seminar on using golf to further women’s careers, August 25.

Golf links sport and career opportunities for women

Playing golf can be healthy for more than your body, says a UWindsor kinesiology professor emeritus—it can be healthy for your career, too.

“Golf is a lifetime sport for women, but it can also be a career builder,” says Margery Holman. “It provides opportunities to network and develop relationships.”

She is past chair of Leadership Advancement for Women and Sport, which is hosting an event later this month to introduce women to using golf as a business tool.

Link Up With LAWS will introduce women to the rules—written and unwritten—of the sport on Monday, August 25, at Rochester Place Golf Club. Aspiring LPGA player Erica Rivard will instruct attendees in chipping and putting techniques before leading them out on the course to play nine holes.

“The target group is females with some golf knowledge and experience, but insufficient to feel confident that they belong, yet it does not exclude true beginner golfers or highly experienced golfers,” Dr. Holman says.

The event begins at noon and concludes with a networking cocktail reception. The $100 registration cost includes lunch, golf tips, the nine-hole round, cart rental and the post-game social. To register, visit or call 519-253-3000, ext. 2436.
