We are so excited for tonight! We’ve teamed up with Women On Course and will be showcasing our apparel line at their monthly Signature Event at the Norbeck Country Club in Rockville, MD. We’ve said before that our own mission is to encourage and inspire more women to play more golf, and Women On Course is doing exactly that.
So What Is Women On Course And Why Should You Give It A Try?
Women on Course is a dynamic community built around events on and off the golf course. It offers opportunities to create connections, deepen relationships, and learn new skills. In this group you can:
- Attend events with women who have similar skills;
- Get matched with resources to suit your style of play;
- Access to like-minded women through our member directory, aka, your “virtual clubhouse;”
- First dibs on women-only golf-related events, trips and outings;
- Invitations to local, member-only events and “anytime deals” for learning or playing;
- Prefered rates to WOC events;
- Anytime member deals for local golf and lessons;
- Discounts to golf-related products, apparel and service.
Here’s a glimpse at what’s in store for tonight…
Sometimes learning to golf can be quite intimidating, but groups like Women On Course help take that fear away. You’re meeting and learning to play with other women of all skill levels. It’s great for networking, making friendships, learning and/or perfecting a new skill, getting out into the fresh air, enjoying that much needed glass of wine at the end of the day, traveling with exceptional people…shall we go on?

We all know that golf and business mix. For years, deals have been made on the golf course, but do you really know why golf is so important for your career?

At Bump & Run, we’re passionate about getting more women to play more golf. We want every woman to experience this amazing sport and all of its benefits!
Over the years, we’ve noticed that many of our friends are hesitant to golf, because they find it very difficult to fit in a full round. In reality, spending 4-5 hours at the golf course just doesn’t work for most.
Last month we held our first trunk show for Bump & Run Apparel, with great success, at The Ladies’ Golf Club of Toronto. It was a fun-filled day and it was amazing to meet so many women golfers! Read More…
Did you know that since 1924, Toronto has been home to a ladies golf club? In fact, the Ladies’ Golf Club of Toronto is the only private golf club in North America where women have priority access to tee times. Of course, men are more than welcome to join, but it’s always ladies first at this club! Read More…
We’re in the home stretch of winter, and that means a new golf season is just around the corner! Today we have a guest post from Matt at TruGolf, and he’s sharing his tips on how to get you and your golf game ready for Spring.
About a year ago I started working with a new golf instructor, Bill Longmuir. He’s a phenomenal teacher and has completely changed my swing and the way I play the game. When I played my first (and only to date) tournament last February, the one piece of advise he gave me was to trust my swing.
Being an entrepreneur is hard work, being a woman entrepreneur is really hard work, and being a woman entrepreneur in the golf industry is damn-near impossible. So whenever Ree and I meet other women in the golf world with businesses who share our enthusiasm for golf and women, and merging the two together, we do whatever we can to help and support their efforts.
Women In Business
Did you know that female entrepreneurs start companies with 50% less capital than male entrepreneurs [source]? Yet, women entrepreneurs are more adept than their male counterparts at seeing gaps in the market and seizing the opportunity [source]. “WBEs [women business enterprises] are agile, innovative problem-solvers, meeting corporations’ needs quickly, adapting to marketplace changes and providing deep value and cost-effectiveness,” said Pamela Prince Eason, president and CEO of Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
So as female entrepreneurs, who know just how hard it is to start a business, we think it’s important to support other women.
And we found a great company that we want to help out. We have a photo shoot coming up in early 2017, and be sure to check out the shoes on the model. Very chic! So let me introduce you to…
