- More Than Golf
“More Than Golf” has been a guiding principle of the ANNIKA Foundation since its inception in 2007.
At each of our global events, we bring in speakers and develop workshops to extend the experience beyond just the golf course.
The Foundation recognizes the importance of well-rounded individuals and strives to leave a lasting impact on each and every player.
In 2009, the ANNIKA Invitational USA presented by Rolex was the first event founded by Annika in the Foundation’s series of global events. Now, the tournaments span five continents including Europe, Asia, Latin America, North America and Australasia.
The top three players from each international event are annually invited to the ANNIKA Invitational USA presented by Rolex the following year.
When developing her idea of what the ANNIKA Invitational would be, Annika was determined to include initiatives that supported the Foundation’s slogan “More Than Golf.” She wanted her invited participants to leave the week with something more than just a three-round aggregate score.
Annika’s experience has taught her that it takes more than a good golf swing and putting stroke to be a winner on the competitive tours. That’s why she includes leadership and life-skill workshops that take place during tournament week to allow the girls to ask questions and learn what it will take to be successful in their career.
