The Golf Federation held regular competitions Open Ladies Golf Tour
The women's golf tournament was held on May 9 at the Golfstream Golf Club. Despite the changeable weather and cold - the competition took place.
Now in Ukraine, 33% of all golfers are women. This number is constantly growing, because at each stage of the competition more and more members of ladies are joining.
Opening the tournament, the director of the Open Ladies Golf Tour and the vice-president of the Federation, Olena Rudik, emphasized that 210 years ago the first tournament among women in the world took place! At that time, even the director of the Old Course in Scotland did not believe in the strength and endurance of the ladies, when he was approached by women with a request to hold a competition.
"Of course you can try, but I think it will be the first and last women's tournament, because golf is a game in any weather, I don't think you will pass through it." replied the director of the Old Course in Scotland.
More than 200 years have passed since then, and women are not only still playing golf, but also moving the sport forward at a rapid pace.
