Kitimat’s golfing ladies donned red and got out onto Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club’s sun-drenched fairway to participate in the international 4th annual Women’s Golf Day.
Women’s Golf Day (WGD) is a global golf initiative launched in 2016 to introduce women of all ages to the game and encourage existing female golfers to “tee it up” in a fun and highly inclusive environment.
