The world’s number 1 range technology, Toptracer, and the UK Women’s Golf Community – founded by Jasmine, aka The Jazzy Golfer – joined forces for a groundbreaking driving range takeover that brought together more than 130 women and girls and introduced more than 50 newcomers to golf.
Held on August 25th at GolfPlex, an ultramodern driving range equipped with world-leading Toptracer technology, members of the UK Women’s Golf Community (UK WGC) – representing diverse backgrounds and skill levels – travelled to Bracknell from across the country to enjoy an innovative and experiential golf experience.
Aimed at both seasoned golfers and complete newcomers looking to ignite an interest in the game, the latter were given the perfect platform to give golf a try through Toptracer’s range of game modes, including beginner modes like Go Fish, and more advanced challenges such as Closest to Pin and Points Game.
The event was hosted by The Jazzy Golfer, founder of the UK Women’s Golf Community, host of CNN’s Living Golf, and a true advocate for women’s participation in the sport. “This collaboration between the UK WGC and Toptracer has been fantastic,” she commented. “It was an incredible moment witnessing so many women and girls come together in one place, all enjoying golf in a welcoming, safe and fun environment. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that may women at a driving range and we couldn’t have done it without the support of Toptracer.
“The event not only celebrated those who already play golf but by having the Toptracer technology in every single bay, it enabled many of the new golfers to start their journeys in a fun, engaging and unintimidating way. I’ve had so many messages from people who were there saying how much fun they had including many who have now got the golfing bug which we love to hear! It really was such a brilliant night, and one that won’t be forgotten by any of the attendees any time soon!”
The event also welcomed special guest, Inci Mehmet. The Sky Sports Broadcaster and former LET Professional was on hand to deliver an insightful Q&A to attendees alongside Jazzy, before sharing her expertise with the many beginner golfers up and down the driving range. “It was genuinely eye-opening to see so many women and girls come together to enjoy an evening of golf on Friday night, and it made me feel proud to be part of such a ground-breaking event,” she said. “Toptracer and the UK Women’s Golf Community really put on a show, and I’m delighted that I could be a part of it.”
The event also featured music from a live DJ, an array of golf-themed cocktails and mocktails, competitions, prizes, and goodie bags for every attendee.
Toptracer, globally trusted for its revolutionary technology that transforms the golf experience, was eager to support the event and underline its commitment to fostering inclusivity in the sport. Diversity and inclusivity are its core values and will continue to innovate on initiatives that keep both new and current golfers engaged in the sport.
