The Cincinnati women’s golf scene is swinging high thanks to these women

The Women’s Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour returns to Cincinnati in early September for the Procter & Gamble Kruger Queen City tournament.

But, with excitement around an event, it is appropriate to highlight those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly and promote Cincinnati Women’s Golf.

So, The Cincinnati Enquirer ranks eight of these women, some of whom are contributing to the inaugural event from September 5-11 at Kenwood Country Club and some of whom have opened doors to golf opportunities elsewhere around the river.

“Honestly, I never thought golf would be in my future,” she said. “She played it growing up, but when I graduated from college I fell for my first job – working food and beverage on tour golf – and things grew from there. I fell visibly in love with it.”

Norell graduated from St. Thomas University, in her hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota, in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Language and Literature.
