Founder, Latina Golfers Association (LGA)
Azucena Maldonado is on a mission to introduce Latinas to golf for their professional development and personal enjoyment. She founded the Latina Golfers Association (LGA) in 2008 to teach women how to utilize golf as a business tool and how to maximize the networking opportunities available through business golf. Over 1,200 women in Southern California have participated in the LGA’s golf clinics, lessons and golf outings with the number growing every day. Azucena teaches women how to break gender and cultural barriers through golf. From the East Coast to Texas to Miami, Atlanta and Southern California, Maldonado has shared her secrets of how to be welcomed into the “boys club” and break the glass ceiling with a golf ball. She has also organized golf clinics throughout the country for various Latino/a organizations. Recognized as a leader in the industry, Azucena has appeared in Golf Digest, Golf Business, PGA of America and the Southern California Golf Association’s magazine publications, to name a few.
