Deb Harrad, 2023 Lady Captain
Thank you for your interest in the Ladies' Section of Rugby Golf Club. We are a friendly and enthusiastic club with playing and social members all integrating on a regular basis.
Our female members range from beginners to those at county level.
The Ladies Section are fully committed to the Women’s Charter which can be viewed in full on the club’s website.
Our diary offers a wide range of competition formats including individual and team competitions played at Rugby and on other courses. Some are scratch competitions for those of a higher standard but many take account of golfing handicaps so everyone can compete equally.
Each year the Lady Captain hosts several golfing and social events to support her local charity. This year our chosen charity is the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
Our main ladies’ day is Wednesday when we have priority access to the tee. To support those who are unable to play in the week we have an alternate day for most competitions at the weekend, there is a medal competition held once a month on a Saturday and there are monthly Club medals open to all on a Sunday. There is also the opportunity for all members to play an extra medal or stableford on Tuesdays.
For those ladies preferring to play fewer holes or recovering from injury, there is a regular 9 hole competition held on most Wednesdays and a roll-up session on most Mondays.
Major competitions are played throughout the season including the Club Championship. There are knockout and mixed competitions and Opens in the Spring and Autumn, making up a good variety of competitions for members and visitors.
We have teams who enter many competitions for example: Inter Club County Competition, Midlands Scratch League, Warwickshire League, Annodata, Taskers, and Warwickshire Foursomes. We also have regular friendly matches with neighbouring clubs.
Whatever your standard or type of golf competition you enjoy, you can be sure that we will have something for you at Rugby.
Coaching is available with our qualified PGA professionals, Dave Quinn and Zoe North, either at Leam Valley Golf Centre or on the practice ground at the golf club. They offer one-to-one lessons, short game clinics, masterclasses and on-course coaching. Their open day clinics are a great way to meet other golfers, enjoy free coaching and play a few holes to experience the course. The Club also offers an attractive Academy package which includes coaching on and off the course which is the perfect pathway into golf for beginners.
Dave or Zoe can be contacted at any time and are happy to answer any of your golfing questions and offer
Various social occasions are organised throughout the year from an informal Golf Rules Night with cheese and wine to in house fashion shows. There is a yearly Charity Lunch for playing and social members and their friends; this year the fund raiser is at The Waterside Restaurant, Draycote Water. The Lady Captain has a yearly Golfing Away Day – this is at Hollywood Golf Club in June with a Glitz and Glamour theme for golfing attire and the post-match meal! 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 email@example.com.
