Activity: OtherTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Media article or participation


PhD researcher Lauren Beatty and sports historian Dr Fiona Skillen join the Common Good Podcast to talk about a new study that charts the development in women's golf in Scotland over the past four decades. The pair touch on their findings and how they can be used in a practical context, before exploring how the women's game began (and busting a few myths along the way). They also discuss what golf must do to attract more female players.
