Latina Golfers Association founder launches new networking platform

The founder of the Latina Golfers Association is expanding her efforts into a new venture called the Women’s Golf Network. Azucena Maldonado credited the success of her efforts to get more Latinas involved in golf with her impetus to launch the new business.

“I’m so excited that our golf clinics, lessons and outings are attracting women from all walks of life and backgrounds,” Maldonado said about the LGA, which she added has more than 1,300 members in the Southland. “I want all women to take advantage of the golf movement started by the LGA and, to that end, I’ve created the Women’s Golf Network.”

With eight-plus years of experience with the LGA, Maldonado thinks she has hit on a good formula for getting the word out and attracting women to the game through the group’s special events, golf outings and networking opportunities.

“Our golf events and outings are fun, inviting and eliminate the intimidation factor surrounding the game of golf,” she said. “Our approach to teaching the game is also a bit different. We get the women on the course as soon as possible with the end goal of making them feel comfortable to play in a business golf outing or charity golf tournament.”

The Women’s Golf Network’s mission, like the LGA, is to empower women by teaching them how to utilize golf as a business tool. The new venture will also host destination golf clinics and spa/golf retreats starting in October at the Islands of Loreto’s Villa del Palmar in Baja California, Mexico.
