Introduction to the Ladies’ Section
Hello – I’m Anne Hawkins, Ladies’ Captain at Rugby Golf Club for 2017-18 – and I would like to tell you about the Ladies’ Section.
Rugby Golf Club Ladies’ Section is comprised of a vibrant mix of Social and Competitive members and players – all levels of playing skills are catered for in a relaxed and friendly context.
Ladies’ Day each week is on Wednesdays when, throughout the year, a wide variety of competition formats is played, some appealing more to ‘golfers for fun’ and others to ‘more competitive golfers’, but mostly subscribed to by all the Section members.
Many of the Ladies also take advantage of joining in with regular ‘turn-up-and-play’ friendly social golf sessions on other days of the week. In general, apart from when tees are reserved for specific competitions, Rugby Golf Club has a ‘turn-up-and-play’ policy without members having to reserve a specific tee-time. All in all, there are plenty of opportunities for ladies to play the course, whether in an organised competition, with friends socially, or ‘just on your own’ if that is what takes your fancy.
There are a number of internal competitions throughout the Season for Ladies to play – with, or sometimes against, members of the other RGC Sections – the Seniors’, the Men’s and the Juniors’. Naturally, members of the Ladies’ Section also compete in the Rugby Golf Club Mixed Open events.
In addition, each year the Ladies’ Section holds its own two major ‘Open’ competitions We’ve just recently held our Open 3-Ball Alliance (7 June) and are looking forward to our 4-Ball AM/AM - Full Handicap - Wednesday 13 September, when we welcome players from many other Golf Clubs to come and take part and to enjoy playing RGC Course.
For those members who like to play competitive golf and also to try out different courses, the Ladies have a range of opportunities – including Warwickshire League and Lady Veterans’ competitions, local inter-club Ladies’ and Mixed friendlies. Some of our members also take part successfully in Open events at other clubs as well as in regional and national competitions.
For those who are new to golf (or new to Rugby Golf Club) we want to try to help you to ease yourself into the game and into club membership. Come and talk to us to see what membership option would suit you best. In addition to 5- and 7-day memberships, we have both flexible and academy memberships available. I’d love to meet you and introduce you to other members of the Ladies’ Section. I can assure you of a warm welcome. Do please get in touch.
The Ladies’ Section is also committed to raising money for a chosen charity each year. This year’s charity, nominated by the Ladies’ Captain, is CarersTrust (the Rugby Branch). Even if you are not a member of Rugby Golf Club, you would be very welcome to come and join us in the ‘fun’ events that the Ladies organise during the course of the year to raise money for this very serious and worthwhile charity, in what is perceived to be a time of crisis for social care.
