Home of Golf Celebrates International Women’s Day

March 08 2021

St Andrews Links’ women colleagues are in the spotlight this week as the Home of Golf champions the contributions of women in our sport and the workplace as part of International Women’s Day (Monday 8th March).

This year's theme – #ChooseToChallenge – is an important reminder that we all must challenge gender inequality to translate awareness into action and change.

Euan Loudon, Chief Executive St Andrews Links Trust, said: “Today, on International Women’s Day, we pause to celebrate the achievement of women across the Links landscape and reaffirm our commitment to greater female participation in our sport and in the workplace.

“We believe in gender equality at the Home of Golf, whether that is through providing a welcoming, inclusive environment for women golfers of all ages and abilities to participate in our sport or encouraging more women to consider exploring a career within the golf industry at St Andrews Links. I would like to extend a special thank you to all our brilliant staff (men included), who are helping to create a more gender-inclusive world in their respective areas of our organisation.”

A significant number of women work in a diverse range of positions across the Links, from Rachel Lewis, Golf Operations and Instruction at the Golf Academy, to Greenkeeper Natasha Repinskaja and Dorothy Murphy, Sales and Events Manager.

Dorothy, who has worked at the Links for 14 years, said: “International Women's Day is about raising awareness for women, celebrating our achievements and focusing on our future. I’m proud to be part of an organisation within the golf industry encouraging more people to consider playing the game or pursuing a career.”

Mairi Herald, Retail Buyer, added: “For me, International Women’s Day means taking a moment to reflect on the many brilliant women in my life and their achievements. It’s great to see more women getting involved in golf but there remains a big gap and it’s important we all play our part in encouraging more women to be involved and give it a go.”
