The Ladies’ Section has been a successful section of the club for many years and offers every opportunity for members to get involved, both competitively and socially. Competitions are held on a regular basis on Thursdays and weekends for our thriving weekend Ladies.
There are three ladies golf teams: 1st and 2nd Scratch Teams and a Pearson Team, with these league matches being played against other clubs on a home and away basis. Friendly matches against local clubs are played throughout the summer.
The ladies have a full and varied programme of competitions including regular Medals and Stablefords and a Spring and Autumn Meeting, Lady Captain’s Day and Lady President’s Day.
Over the years several of our lady members have represented their county both at senior and at junior level. On several occasions the ladies have won the accolade of Best County Scratch team and have been finalists in the Pearson Trophy. We enjoy our golf and belonging to a strong golfing community.
The Ladies’ Academy
A recent feature of the Ladies Section has been the successful introduction of The Ladies Academy which is an excellent opportunity for ladies to experience golf lessons for beginners, or near beginners, in a group environment.
The Academy initially offers ‘introductory’ group lessons (with no more than six in a group) from our Professional with all equipment provided, and a pathway into the Advanced Academy where individual lessons and on-course coaching is given. After one year in the Advanced Academy and, if sufficient progress has been made, you will be invited to join the Club.
All ‘Academy’ Ladies are welcomed into the Ladies Section and are encouraged to participate in social activities and find they quickly bond with the more established lady members of the club. The Ladies Academy is a constant feeder of new members into the Ladies Section who by the time they do join already feel very much part of the overall club.
