The Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy at Barefoot Resort will be hosting “Golfing with a Twist” for a fun evening out for girls and women from 4-8 p.m. June 7 in recognition and support of the inaugural International Women's Golf Day.

The Grand Strand’s two PGA Tour Superstore locations will also be hosting Women’s Golf Day events. All events are free and for women and girls with or without golf experience.

At the Norman Academy, there will be instruction from the academy’s coaches on the putting green and driving range as well as time for socializing and the chance to win over $600 worth of prizes.

Players can bring their own equipment, but the academy will also provide clubs, balls, instruction, beverages (soda, water, and adult drinks), hors d'oeuvres and entertainment. The event has a maximum participation of 45 women. Register online at bitly.com/golfingwithatwist.

At PGA Superstore, basic instruction will be offered from 4-6 p.m. in the club department and followed by two social hours from 6-8 p.m. with appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks. PGA Tour Superstore staff will inform the participants about other programs available to them. Women can sign up by calling the Myrtle Beach location at 843-839-4653 or NMB store at 843-272-6030.

International Women’s Golf Day was created to be a global growth-of-the-game initiative welcoming women and girls to golf facilities for introduction to the game in a spirited environment. Other participating facilities include PGA Tour Superstores from coast to coast, the Leadbetter Golf Academy in Florida and courses in Nevada, Arizona, Alaska and Ohio.
