Arizona Women’s Golf Expo tickets include access to:

  • Hourly instruction and adult clinics;
  • Exhibitions with special guests;

  • Silent auction benefitting Girls Golf of Phoenix;

“The Westin Kierland Golf Club is known for its commitment to innovation and fun. We’ve paired that commitment with the goal of bringing more women into the game,” said Nancy Dickens, director of golf, The Westin Kierland Golf Club.

The idea of the Women’s Golf Expo was conceived by Sandy LaBauve, a Golf Digest “Top 50 Golf Instructor” who teaches at Kierland’s LaBauve Golf Academy, and former LPGA player and local instructor Tina Tombs. The event provides women who are new to golf an ideal introduction to the game in a friendly setting, while helping veteran players learn tips for improving their game.
