“Like, you don’t hit it 280, sir. My rule is, if you can’t outdrive me, you’re playing in front of me; you’re moving up a tee.” – Danielle Kang in Golf Digest, December's cover star
So Hearts & Darts at Streamsong Resort was ah-mazing. A weekend of golf, seeing old pals, making new friends and entertainment at Fragmentary Blue’s rooftop bar (lol). It makes us so excited for our 2022 golf getaways and events and we hope you’ll join us! In the meantime, check out the tips and tricks written by some of the participants. They’re great whether you’re headed to Streamsong or another golf getaway! Keep an eye out for The Lily … we’re launching our second Pinehurst Resort Golf Getaway soon!!
We can’t sign off without thanking all of you for your support of Fore the Ladies this year. We’ve grown so much, learned, improved and met so many incredible women. 17 clinics. 2 golf getaways. More than 800 ladies. What a year. Thank you for being part of it.

Show your FTL pride with our women’s and men’s pieces from Imperial! It was so fun to curate this collection and I hope there’s a little something for everyone. Pro tip: The Tour visor is terry cloth and the beanie has a fleece liner to keep you warm! -abby
On a recent trip to Streamsong (holla FTL getaways!) I bought this jacket at the pro shop and got to wear it this week! It's easy to play in, stretchy and not too snug in the arms. You can find them all over the internet and in pro shops too. Highly recommend as a light jacket or mid-layer under a vest. -sara

Ladies of Golf: Renee Powell & Suzy Whaley
We have a super special Ladies of Golf episode for you all. Abby had the opportunity to moderate a panel with Renee Powell and Suzy Whaley for the National Links Trust Symposium on Municipal Golf. As part of the Women in Golf discussion, Abby, Renee and Suzy talked about a variety of topics like women and girls roles in municipal golf, economic and social impact opportunities with women, women in leadership roles and so much more. Thanks to National Links Trust for allowing us to share this inspiring conversation! Please consider giving us a rating and review while you tune in! -abby
Something I started to do in 2021 was keep a golf journal of sorts - a place to jot down tips, lessons directions, swing thoughts, drills for practice etc. It's helpful to keep it all in one place, and you can go through to see what you've been working on over time. I like this Moleskin soft cover one because it's small and you can keep it in your bag - I like the dotted pages too. -sara
We all know how intimidating it can be to learn how to play golf, but the women at Prio Golf have made the perfect welcome box. Included in this starter kit is a ladies golf bible, golf balls, tees, a hat or visor (your choice!) and so much more. This is the perfect gift for your friend who needs a little nudge to get started in golf AND Prio Golf is offering a special discount to all of you with the promo code foretheladies10 -abby
A lightweight favorite! If you are between sizes, go down 1/2 size. For reference, I am a 6-6.5 and wish I had gone with a 6 vs. a 6.5 (although I still wear mine all the time). They're great for when you want comfort but don't want to sacrifice a super-chic leather look. -kristen
D&F Modern has released their first sweaters and we’re obsessed. I mean, how cute is Fitz the pup? D&F Modern’s goal is to make sure everyone feels comfortable on the golf course, and their first step is creating great clothing options for female golfers. PLUS they’re offering a discount to FTL: The promo code ForeTheLadies is good for 25% off! -abby
