Because women account for such a small percentage of the golf and turf management industry, it’s important that women in this profession have the opportunity to connect, grow and share their experiences. That’s why Bayer developed Women in Golf.

The annual Women in Golf event is a celebration of creating community, fueling passion and supporting the growth of women in the golf and turf industry. This year’s event is going virtual and will take place September 16-18, 2020. The event is open to superintendents, assistant superintendents and other women in golf course maintenance and turf roles across the United States and Canada. Those who want to apply to participate must be 18 or older. (Note: 2019 WIG alumnae are automatically invited to this event and do NOT need to apply. Alumnae will receive a separate registration link in the coming weeks.)
