Women's Golf Journal is an American national magazine dedicated to celebrating the lifestyle of golfing women everywhere. "The depth of teaching expertise in the LPGA is astounding," said Women's Golf Journal Publisher Matthew Squire.

"We are honored to be part of this elite group of golf professionals and are so lucky to be able to spread the philosophies of Nancy Lopez through our adventures. I believe our greatest strength as Nancy Lopez Golf Adventures' expert instructors is that we don't try to reinvent the golfer's swing. We work with their swing and teach them to play and enjoy the game through our Play Happy philosophies." said Teresa Zamboni.
