The available number of sports for your little one are vast, more so now than ever. The options are endless and the pressure to chose the right one, is often immense.

Perhaps it is the primary available sport at your child’s school. Whatever the reason, encouraging participation in sports is a critical role of parents.

This article speaks to the beginner women golfer or the recreational women golfer who enjoys the game but does not spend hours each week perfecting her swing – basically most of us!

At GGG, we spend a lot of time in the sun and sunscreen is our golf cart co-pilot. On a recent beach vacation, an 8-year old girl in the GGG family woke up with a completely swollen face.

They are also heavy and not super breathable. We find the styling on traditional golf shoes outdated and not very attractive. For us, the best women’s golf shoe has the following attributes: stylish, breathable, comfortable, and low profile. Why did we choose these categories?

A barrier for many would-be-golfers is the cost. Not only does the initial investment run high between clubs, gear and accessories, every game comes with a price.
