Welcome to Fore the Ladies!

Fore the Ladies, Inc., is a female-based community and 501(c)(3) non-profit on a mission to introduce more women to the game and bring them together to play, watch, and participate in everything golf has to offer. We hope to make golf more accessible and approachable, while removing the expected barriers such as cost, equipment, golf course access and intimidation.

Our Origin Story

Founder (and President) Abby Liebenthal was the only girl in her group of friends growing up who played golf. She never thought much of it, as it was simply a summertime family activity. This theme continued through college, but more and more of her friends wanted to at least try to hit golf balls and learn the game. They felt they were missing business, social and networking opportunities that happen on the golf course, and Abby wanted to create something that encouraged them to get into the game in a non-intimidating atmosphere. 

We know so many women who simply don’t know where to start when it comes to golf. They aren’t sure they’ll like the game, so they don’t want to invest in lessons, equipment, apparel and access to a course. We certainly understand that. We wouldn’t purchase a membership to a cycle studio without trying first.


Voila, in 2019 Fore the Ladies was born.


When one intro-to-golf clinic turned into two, and then five, and now more than 150 events since 2019, we knew we had something special.
