The Ladies - Ladies Captain Sue Lyons
Welcome to the Ladies’ section of Marlborough Golf Club.
At Marlborough Golf Club we ladies are proud of our friendly atmosphere. We welcome new members, and have a thriving ladies’ section, with regular competitions. We know that everyone’s needs differ when it comes to playing golf; some enjoy playing in competitions while others prefer social golf; some ladies work and can only play on weekends or evenings; and we have beginners who are keen to get their handicaps. The ladies’ committee work hard to try and accommodate these differing requirements. We offer weekday and weekend competitions, and regular nine hole qualifying competitions as well. We also have a number of drawn competitions, where we mix up different handicaps, so that higher and lower handicaps can all play together.
Lady Captain’s Update – August 2017
Not sure what has happened to the summer but hopefully it will return soon as we have lots of events going on in the next few weeks. The Captain’s Day is on Sunday 13th August. This is open to both five and seven day members. The sign up sheet for this is on the main notice board.
The LiddamoreTrophy, which is a competition where the ladies team competes against a team of Seniors, is on Friday 25th August. Please do sign up for this as it is a fun competition and it would be great to see the ladies back on top of the trophy. We can put in a large team so please do sign up – the more the merrier.
There is a Texas Scramble on the Bank Holiday Monday on the 28th August. The sign up sheet is on the main notice board. The Ladies Coronation Cup and Jubilee Cup is on Tuesday 5th September. These are medal competitions – one for those with handicaps of 20 and below and one for those with handicaps of 21 and over. The Ladies Times Table Competition is on the 12th September. This is a fun competition where teams of 3 players are drawn. I do hope many of you can join us for the game. We have the weekday roll ups on Tuesdays at 10.15 to go out at 10.30 and hope that you will be able to join us.
We have several Ladies Friendlies and a Mixed Friendly in the next few weeks. We have struggled recently to find players for these matches and it would be lovely to see more ladies signing up to take part in these. These matches are open to allladies with a current handicap although preference in the Ladies Friendlies will be given to those who do not play in the Club League matches if we have more ladies than required. Please do consider playing and keep an eye out on the notice boards and sign up to play if you are able to do so. If there is any reason as to why you do not wish toor are unable to play in the friendly matches, such as days of matches, tee times, format or food options etc. please do let me know so that we can look into the same.
We have a ladies Away Trip planned for Sunday 8th October to Tuesday 10th October at Old Thorns in Hampshire. I currently have one space available on this trip. If you are not already signed up but would like to join us please do let me know as soon as possible. As you can see there is plenty to keep us busy in the next few weeks and I hope you can take part in these. Please do keep an eye on the notices on the boards in the changing room and the monthly updates for more information.

These matches are a great way to meet other members of the club and people from other clubs.
As advised in my previous update we are changing the time of the Tuesday Roll Ups to 9.15 for 9.30 and hope that this will allow more members to come along and join in the roll up.
