Port St. Lucie, Florida–ORCA Golf combined forces with instructors for the first time to celebrate the future of women in golf at The Trident Golf Performance Center at Sandpiper Bay in Club Med Florida. They expected 30 women, however, 55 women came from all over the state for this amazing first-time celebration, The day started with the introduction of Erica Bennett, one of the founders of ORCA Golf, the only women-owned & founded golf bag company in the United States. Her message was “an inspiration of what women can accomplish when they set their minds to achieve” was the consensus from the participants after her presentation.
The goal of the event was “to continue our mission to grow the game in tangible and meaningful ways by creating opportunities for men and women to learn and play in an informal atmosphere,” said Erica Bennett. The event included golf tips, techniques, and instructions from top Elite 50 LPGA Professionals. In addition, each guest received lunch, social time to meet others, a Trident gift certificate for a round of golf and a beautiful ORCA Pod. The ORCA Pod, is a case to protect and house not only your glove but also provides a secure and dry place to protect your mobile phone and easily slides into the long side pocket of your golf bag. This is only the start for ORCA. The women wanted to know when the next one will be.
“ORCA Golf is definitely not the company of the past; we are thinking of the next generation while honoring the tradition of the game. It’s not about gadgets and gimmicks, it’s about inclusion and access-we are bold, and we don’t mind leading the charge. We hope the entire golf community will engage with us and join the Pod as only together will we create changes,” stated Erica Bennett.
