START WITH YES
The Pro Shop is a nonprofit organization with the mission to empower women in architecture, engineering and construction into greater positions of influence, through the game of golf.
WHAT WE OFFER
We started The Pro Shop to get more women to say yes to the game of golf. Not only do we love to play, but golf has helped us build our networks and our careers. Have you been invited to play in an industry tournament, but fear holds you back? Don’t know anything about the rules and etiquette? Don’t have clubs and clothes? Maybe you don’t think you’re good enough? It can be intimidating and overwhelming. We know because we’ve felt all these things too!
We are building a community with a focus on removing the barriers to bring more equity to the course and to our industry. We have so many exciting things in the works. We will share information on the basics of the game, how to get started, what equipment you’ll needed, and how to network on and off the course. We’ll have small group networking and coaching sessions at the driving range and on the course. We’ll host a tournament, where men in AEC can play as well, and help build our community of allies and supporters. We offer a members-only portal with educational content and a place where you can ask questions in a judgement-free space. Does anyone else get frustrated at the lack of fashionable items for women at golf shops?! Because we are! We will partner with our favorite golf brands on special collabs, and host pop-up shopping events and fashion shows to get you outfitted in the coolest gear.
