AFR Offers Program for Women as Part of “Play Golf America"

ANGEL FIRE, NM – (May 29, 2009) - Angel Fire Resort Golf Course in Angel Fire, NM is introducing a new and innovative golf program that is targeted to women. “Chicks with Sticks” is intended for women to learn the game of golf in a relaxed and non-intimidating environment. At the same time, the Chicks with Sticks program provides them with a unique opportunity to make new friends and find playing partners who have the same goals and interests. Women can register for Chicks with Sticks at Angel Fire Resort Golf Course or on

Chicks with Sticks is a fun play afternoon for women that includes a golf clinic, 9 holes of golf and a Social Hour. The event will be held each Tuesday in June beginning with the Clinic at 3 PM. A 9 Hole Scramble followed by a Social Hour with food and refreshments follows. The Clinic is FREE, there is a $30 charge (includes green fee, cart and entry fee) for the 9 Hole Scramble and special discounts are available on food and beverage during the Social Hour. Women can choose their own level of participation.

“The “Chicks” have a great time with the emphasis on fun,” says Ron Moxom, Head Pro at Angel Fire Resort Golf Course. “We want to provide a friendly atmosphere for women to learn and enjoy playing golf.”

The PGA of America is responding to a growing number of women who want to learn the game of golf. Programs geared toward women are just one of a number of initiatives under The Play Golf America umbrella developed by The PGA of America to grow the game of golf. The essence of the program is socially enjoyable, time-efficient, and free of the intensity that surrounds everyday life and often distracts us from the activities we enjoy.

“Play Golf America” is designed to increase participation among new and occasional golfers and comprises a complete package of growth-of-the-game programs targeting the adult population of various segments including seniors, families, couples, women and business professionals. Led by The PGA of America, this industry initiative is supported by the National Golf Course Owners Associations, PGA Tour, LPGA, USGA and GOLF 20/20.
