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 – November 2017
I hope that you have been enjoying the lovely autumn colours and managing to get out for a few holes of golf when the weather is kind.
Going forward there are still quite a few events, both golf and social, to keep us busy.
There are the Turkey Trot’s on the 11th and 14th of November. These are individual stablefords where you can make your own arrangements to play on the day or attend the Tuesday roll up on the 14th November. The winner of each competition gets a voucher for the local butchers which can be used towards your Christmas Turkey or something else if you prefer.
There is some information on the notice board about the Ladies Daily Mail Foursomes Competition. If you would like to take part in this then please find a partner and another couple to play with (or a marker) and play a foursomes game. Games must be played by the end of January 2018. The couple with the best score will go forward to represent the club in the knockout matches which run from February 2018.
There is a skittles evening on Friday 17th November. This is a popular fun evening and spaces are now limited. The sign-up sheet is on the main notice board.
