Golf & Tacos was co-founded by two young professional women in Calgary, AB who learned early in their careers that if you don’t know how to golf, you don’t get invited to golf. It’s that simple. We understood it was our responsibility to learn if we wanted to get off the sidelines and into the game.
What’s not simple is that golf is hard. Learning can be expensive. It takes hours of practice. Getting scolded for–unintentionally–breaking rules, dress code, or etiquette is isn’t fun. And you don’t know where to start–or what to do next after that first golf lesson.
We’ve been there and we get it. We’re here to help.
But first, this isn’t just a modern ladies league. And we haven’t just swapped out wine for a marg in your local club’s nine and dine special.
Golf & Tacos is about reducing the barriers that prevent women from taking up the sport early in their careers, and creating experiences that keep them in the game for the long run.
We’ve designed a roadmap of skill-appropriate programs and events designed to increase confidence, progressively develop skills, and foster the local golf community so you can get out and enjoy the game as often as you like.
As we grow, we’ll continue to add more opportunities for our communities to build connection through meet-ups, tournaments, getaways, and even non-golf events.
What started in 2016 as a fun way to get a few friends to take some golf lessons in Calgary, has organically grown to become a national community of golf courses, teaching professionals, and volunteers, working collaboratively with Golf & Tacos to retrofit our programs and events into their local region. But we’re building this community from the ground up. We’re talking about that gritty grassroots passion that doesn’t wait for someone else to create golf experiences that put the unique needs of women at the center.
We know we won’t be perfect, but we’re committed to listening to our community’s feedback and building a fun, safe, and inclusive space to build connections and enjoy the game.
So, if we’ve got you saying ‘hell ya’, or even got you curious–you can hang with us.
Keep it spicy,
