Elisa GaudetWomen’s Golf Day (WGD) is proud to announce that Founder Elisa Gaudet has been honoured with Individual Sports Professional – Community Award 2020 of the ISC International Sports Awards 2020 in London, England.

The International Sports Convention (ISC) awards, which are now in their 5 th year, celebrate the finest sports work in the world. This year they recognise Ms. Gaudet’s incredible success in delivering a strategy that has continued to expand WGD, despite the stress on the sports industry caused by the pandemic.

2020 was a remarkable year for Women’s Golf Day. WGD experienced record-breaking growth achieving a total of nearly over 90M impressions and reaching 37M people worldwide across social media on Virtual Women’s Golf Day in June and WGD events which were held September 1, where possible. Other highlights include raising critical funds for Médecins sans Frontiers (Doctors without Borders), sponsorship agreements with Callaway Golf and SwingDish among others, global support from The R&A and a soon to be announced relationship that will see WGD events in Japan in 2021.

Now in its 5 th year, the ISC awards recognise the achievements of individuals, groups and companies. Ms. Gaudet won the Individual Sports Professional 2020 – Community Award in the only individual category and is in great company with other award winners including Liverpool FC, Discovery/Eurosport and the Caribbean Premier League.

Elisa Gaudet comments: “I am honoured and delighted to receive this award and congratulate all of the recipients on their achievements. My team has worked incredibly hard to deliver our vision in this challenging year. We want support the golf industry, celebrate women and unite golfers and golf professionals around the world, so to receive recognition on an international level for this is truly humbling. I am very excited for the upcoming year and look forward to developing the new opportunities we have in markets like Asia and specifically, Japan. 2020 has been a struggle for so many people, but this award is proof that by working together we can achieve great things.”
