I would like to start by saying that our local guys in the Houston area have been very respectful towards me, and I appreciate all the support Chicks Chasing Chains has received…We are shocked often with how much love we get. Thank You!
I support the #RespectHERgame movement as I know issues happen…whether it be comments online, on the course or being disappointed because they were paired with a woman in doubles.
Unfortunately, most ladies do not have other women to play with. Sometimes they may feel intimidated playing with guys. With that in mind, many groups are working hard to grow the sport for ladies…. groups like Ladies First Disc Golf, Empowered Disc Golf, and Chicks Chasing Chains are specifically for women disc golfers. With one main goal in mind: Positively growing the sport of disc golf.
I’m heavily involved with my club: the North Side Chain Gang, I play many tournaments, and leagues, but I wasn’t HOOKED until the first time I played with a group of ladies!
Guys, we love this sport just as much as you do. So, if you find yourself in a situation when you’re playing with a disc golf gal, take the opportunity to encourage, but not coach unless requested. Be patient…and hey, if you know other ladies or ladies league…plug her in.
