“BGG mobilizes new and seasoned golfers, many of whom are leaders in business, finance, entertainment, law and technology. Our goal is to create a fun and welcoming space to introduce them to golf, or to help them take their skills to the next level,” says BGG founder and CEO Tiffany Fitzgerald. During her many years in corporate America, Fitzgerald couldn’t help noticing the many opportunities available to her male colleagues who played golf. She decided to take up the sport and create her own opportunities to build better professional relationships and connections with decisionmakers. But Fitzgerald was immediately intimidated and discouraged by a steep learning curve, and felt invisible yet again. So she set out to change the landscape for herself and others. In 2013, Fitzgerald invited friends to join her on a golf course in Atlanta. 26 women showed up, and BGG went from an idea to a sisterhood.
