Golf is slowly shaking off its male-dominated image as more women, especially young women, are coming into the game. In the professional field, the Women’s game is flourishing. In 2015 the LPGA comprised of 34 events with a total prize pot of $60 million compared to four years ago which had 23 events and $40 million in prize money, which is great news for the game and for the rise of women in the sport.
With the increase of women taking up golf and the fact that Mother’s Day is coming up in the UK, here are some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for the golfing women in your life.
Mother’s Day gifts:
Free golf round and spa break
If you or your mum has taken out a golf insurance policy with us then you have access to three vouchers, which enable you to have a free round of golf. Some of these courses with our nine partners are attached to beautiful hotels with relaxing spas. Check out The Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa, The Belfry Hotel and Resort, Shrigley Hall Hotel, Golf and Country Club and Qhotels Aldwark Manor. If you don’t have a policy with us yet, we’re sure your mum will enjoy a day on the course followed by a pamper session at any one of these luxurious resorts.
Tickets to the RICOH Women’s British Open
If your mum is an avid golfer and enjoys watching the sport as much as playing, why not pick up some tickets to the RICOH Women’s British Open or another major golfing competition. It will be a fun day out for the whole family and it won’t break the bank. In addition to the tournament itself, there will also be a plenty of bars, food outlets and shops to enjoy.

With a few lessons, maybe one day she’ll be able to pull off tricks as good as these:
