Deb Bennett, Founder

Deborah Bennett was born leading the way. Throughout her 35+ year career in technology leadership where she directed and mentored a global workforce of thousands, Deb has always put people first, led with conviction, and built lasting relationships.

As a leader within ORCA Golf and its parent organization, 17Yards Golf, Deb believes it’s time for the golf industry to realize that women play a much greater role in the future of golf than before. She wants to encourage women to stay and evolve the game as a tool for learning, growing, and community building.
