LAKE ELMO, Minn. — Women’s Golf Day started in 2016 as a way to celebrate women playing golf across the world.

Royal Golf Club in Lake Elmo was the Minnesota host course for nearly 80 golfers on Tuesday at the Annika Sorenstam designed golf course.

“It’s a day that encourages and celebrates women’s golf. It’s something that we take a lot of pride on here at Royal Golf Club,” Royal Golf Pro Steve Peloquin explained.

“I think the game is becoming less intimidating and more welcoming of a community atmosphere,” he added.

The global golf event was celebrated in 68 countries and on 900 courses all over the world.
