Lady Captain - Sue Tura
Welcome to the Ladies’ Section of Rugby Golf Club.
The Ladies’ section comprises playing and social lady members who are friendly and enthusiastic about their golf and their club. We play at all levels from novice to county representatives. The competition diary offers a wide variety of formats, suiting all handicaps
and abilities-some serious and some just for fun!
Each year the Lady Captain has an ‘Away Day’. This day is a combination of golf, a quiz, a meal and ‘entertainment’- a very enjoyable day out. The Lady Captain chooses a charity each year that the Ladies’ section raises money for and this year’s charity is The Friends of St.Cross.
To start our golfing year off, we have our traditional Captains Drive-In when the members sponsor the yardage of our drives and the money raised goes towards the Captains’ charities.
Ladies’ day is Wednesday and we have priority access to the tee from 12 to 2.15pm. To support our ladies and girls who are unable to play on a Wednesday, there is an alternate day for competitions at a weekend and a medal is held once a month on a Saturday. There is also the opportunity to play in an extra medal or stableford on Tuesdays and this is open to all members.
For those ladies preferring to play 9 holes or recovering from injury and returning to golf, there is a regular 9 hole competition, held on most Wednesdays.
Major competitions are played throughout the season including the Club Championship. There are knock out and mixed competitions, Spring and Autumn Opens and an Am -Am throughout the year, making up a good variety of golf competitions for members and visitors. We have a team of ladies who play in the Inter County Ladies Scratch League and the Warwickshire League and we have regular Friendly Matches with neighbouring clubs.
So whatever type of golf competition you enjoy the most, you can be sure that we will have something for you at Rugby.
Coaching is available with our PGA professionals, Dave Quinn or Zoe North, either at Leam Valley Golf Centre or on the practice ground at the golf club. Both offer private individual lessons, shortgame clinics, masterclasses, & on course coaching. Bi-monthly open day events are a great way to meet other lady golfers, enjoy free coaching clinics and play a few holes to experience the course. They also offer a fabulous academy coaching package, which is a perfect introduction to getting you course ready under the watchful eye of a qualified PGA coach. Dave or Zoe can be contacted at any time and are happy to answer any of your golfing questions and offer advice. firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
Various social occasions are organised throughout the year from trips to gardens, stately houses, and Christmas markets to in house fashion shows. Some of the ladies arrange for a game of bridge especially in the winter months when the weather is not too friendly!
The Ladies’ section is always keen to extend its membership so if you would like any further information or to visit for an informal chat then please contact the membership team on 01788 542306 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
