This week from July 14-16, the Aramco Team Series – London will not only showcase top-tier golf but also go beyond the on-course action to play a crucial role in nurturing the growth of women’s golf in the country.
Hosted at the iconic Centurion Club, Aramco Team Series – London brings together top professional women golfers from around the world, such as world no. 2 Nelly Korda and our very own Leona Maguire, while also providing a platform for local emerging talent to shine through the global golf series’ innovative team format. This inclusive and empowering environment fosters the growth of the women’s game by inspiring young girls and creating role models for the next generation of female golfers.
Britain’s Gabriella Cowley, who has competed in all editions of the Aramco Team Series since its inception in 2021, knows firsthand the importance these events play in growing the women’s game. With her recent tied 5th finish at the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed tournament, where she competed against both men and women, Cowley recognises the impact of the global golf series and said:
“The Aramco Team Series is a fantastic opportunity for golfers, whether amateur or professional, to showcase their abilities on a global stage. These events not only allow us to compete at the highest level but also contribute to the growth and development of the women’s game. Seeing more opportunities and recognition for female golfers is inspiring, and I’m excited to be part of this movement.”
Bronte Law, reigning champion of Aramco Team Series – London, added: “I’ll always cherish the incredible experience of winning last year, especially in front of a home crowd filled with eager young fans. Their energy and support added an extra level of motivation and inspiration, and it’s a testament to the positive impact this tournament has on growing the women’s game. I’m excited to return this year and continue to be a role model for aspiring young golfers, showing them what is possible through dedication and a love for the sport.”
In addition to the thrilling competition on the course, Aramco Team Series – London will also feature a range of initiatives to promote diversity and inclusivity in golf. From junior clinics to interactive fan experiences, the tournament seeks to engage the broader golfing community, encouraging more women and girls to take up the sport and pursue their dreams on the fairways.
Adding to the excitement, Aramco Team Series – London will feature the global golf series’ latest offering: the ‘Inspiring the Next Generation’ discussion panel. The panel, which began at this year’s Aramco Team Series – Singapore, aims to bring together industry experts, business leaders, and speakers to discuss significant topics in lifestyle, business, and sport, inspiring young individuals to take up the game of golf and pursue careers within the industry.
The discussion panel at Aramco Team Series – London will focus on inspiring the next generation of golfers and industry professionals. It will address crucial topics such as encouraging young individuals to embrace golf, navigating the pressures of elite-level sports from a young age, and exploring the diverse range of job opportunities within the golf industry. The panel will feature Lauren Spray, Women and Girls Golf Manager at England Golf; content creator Mia Baker; Olympic medalist and respected British track and field athlete Marilyn Chinwenwa Okoro; and Alice Lowe, who is the Regional Development Officer and Young Volunteers Lead at The Golf Foundation.
Spray shared her enthusiasm for being part of the panel, stating, “Being part of this inspirational panel at Aramco Team Series – London is an incredible opportunity and perfectly aligns with our mission at England Golf to inspire and empower the next generation of women golfers. By discussing how to encourage young individuals to take up the game, navigate the pressures of elite-level sport, and explore diverse career opportunities within the golf industry, we aim to create a lasting impact on the growth of the women’s game. The Aramco Team Series is a showcase of top-level competition and a catalyst for positive change and inclusivity in golf. I am excited to contribute to the discussion and inspire young girls to pursue their passion for golf and realise their full potential.”
