Boston, Jan. 22, 2013 – LPGA Golf Clinics for Women from MetLife, a 23-year old institution based in Boston and operating 14 exclusive women’s golf clinics nationwide, announced its 2013 schedule today.
This executive series, sponsored by some of the most recognizable brands in America, provides a full day’s instruction on fundamentals, etiquette and course management. Attendees also engage in networking sessions and hear keynote addresses from women leaders in their industries. Hosted by a former LPGA Tour player or current LPGA Legends Tour member, the clinics are also an opportunity for participants to witness a professional swing exhibition and receive top-notch, hands-on instruction from Class A Certified LPGA Teaching Professionals.
“We are the only clinic series for women endorsed by the LPGA,” notes Jane Blalock, CEO of JBC Golf, the clinics’ management company. “We take great pride in offering not only exceptional golf instruction, but also in creating an opportunity for women to level the playing field with their male counterparts when it comes to doing business on the golf course.”
Blalock, a 27-time LPGA Tour champion, started the clinics in 1990 after retiring from competitive golf. Her mission remains to share what she learned through the game over the years -- both on and off the course -- that helped her succeed in business.
“Focus, discipline, determination, passion, preparation, integrity – all are key qualities in business leadership,” added Blalock.
LPGA Golf Clinics for Women appear in major markets across the United States, including Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Fla., Tampa, Fla., Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Minneapolis. Open to women ages 18 and up, cost for the day is $375 and includes club rental, if needed. Registration is available on-line at www.lpgagolfclinicsforwomen.com.
