Women mean green for golf resorts
Women-friendly has a specific meaning in the golf industry: hole distances that offer women players a fighting chance at birdie, wider fairways and few shots that require the player to clear water or other hazards. Not-so-women-friendly: tiny greens; greens surrounded by punitive bunkers that prevent low approach shots; and women's tees (nowadays called forward tees) that are little more than a set of markers stuck into the ground in the fairway as an afterthought.
