Lansdown Ladies Section
LADIES LIASION OFFICER – DIANNE BARWELL 2017 – PRESENT.
A warm welcome to Lansdown Ladies Section, ladies have been playing here since 1894. We hope you will enjoy your golf with us for many years to come.
The ladies have recently become members of the Gloucestershire County and are now integrated with the men’s section.
We are an enthusiastic section that welcomes all levels of golfer from complete beginners to the more accomplished players. We have a full golfing diary ahead including a selected team playing in the Bristol & District Alliance Scratch League, who have recently been promoted to the first division, this certainly shows the commitment from our section.
Our competitions are held throughout the year on ladies day, which is Thursday, where they are given priority tee times. The trophies and competitions are also replicated for our working ladies on a Sunday.
Regular roll ups are organised on Tuesdays and non-competition days where the key objective is to provide every opportunity for all members to not only enjoy their golf, but find friendship within the club.
We hold an annual away day, where we play for the Griffin Shield, an exciting day playing on a neutral course enjoyed by all who attend.
We also run friendly matches against other clubs alternating home and away matches each year, these are invaluable to the ladies who prefer a more sociable game but at the same time enables the players to enjoy the experiences of match play. It is also good way to meet players from other clubs and to play other courses in your area. There are Mixed Friendly Matches also booked throughout the year, these are normally played on at the weekend, not only are these competitive but have become a social event with a meal following the game, ideal for those players who perhaps work.
Lansdown is an easy walking whilst being challenging and rewarding with spectacular views towards Wales at the perimeter of the course.
Everyone can play golf as the handicap system allows, but our Professional, James Lee, offers regular lessons for lady members of all golfing abilities. He regularly sends a newsletter advising of all available equipment within his shop and the weekly results of recent competitions.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about this wonderful game of golf, you will be hooked in no time, speak to those who have been playing the sport for years.
We look forward to seeing you at Lansdown where you will be sure of a friendly welcome.
