A League of Her Own - Giving Mom the Perfect Mother's Day Gift. . .

with Foresight Golf Girls Attention: City Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Media Editor, News Editor, Sports Editor MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - April 19, 2005) - Montreal, QC, April 19, 2005 - Every Mother's Day, it's usually the same old thing: flowers, candy or perfume. This year, more and more people are bucking traditional gifts in favour of more contemporary ideas that suit the modern mother. Tanya Maier, president of Montreal's Foresight Strategies, offers some innovative suggestions.

"A membership to Foresight Golf Girls is the perfect gift for Mom. Golf is no longer the boys' club it once was. In fact, one of the fastest growing demographics for golf participation is coming from women," notes Maier. "We offer a non-competitive league where women -mothers, daughters, sisters and grandmothers- feel comfortable. They don't have to be worried about being paired up with strangers and we have members at all levels, from beginner to veteran."

Today women's golf leagues are offering more than just an opportunity to play a few rounds. It's golf, a social club, a workout session and a networking event all wrapped into one. Besides weekly golf games, Foresight Golf Girls offers golf clinics, seminars and supervised practice sessions as well as spas and golf getaways.

"With so many working moms out there, I knew I would have to create a women's golf league that was flexible for busy schedules. What I was constantly being told was that women didn't have time for 18 holes during the week. So, we have 18 holes on the weekends and 9 holes for the weekday. We also offer a lot of variety and address the whole person, this isn't just about golf, it's about camaraderie and career. I teach women how to use golf as a business tool, and at the same time they are getting together, making friends and having fun," says Maier.

For loved ones looking for something different this year Maier is offering a special that runs until Mother's Day. The price for a year-long membership is $150 instead of the regular $175. Golf green fees are not included.
