WELCOME TO THE LADIES SECTION
Ladies day is Wednesday with tees also reserved on Sunday afternoon for those who work during the week or wish to play at weekends. Every Monday we have an informal roll up which is well supported and is always competitive and good fun.
As well as playing a number of competitions throughout the year, we also play against other local clubs. These are currently Buxton and High Peak, Cavendish, Marple , Werneth Low and Mellor.
Major events on our calendar are Lady Captain’s Day in June, our Ladies Open in July and the Turkey Trot in October.
The social side of the club is something we all enjoy and we have a variety of social and fund raising events throughout the year plus two very enjoyable events with the Seniors – an Easter egg competition in the Spring and a quad am in early September.
Whether you are a potential new member or a visitor we will give you a warm welcome and if you need someone to play with we’ll do our best to arrange this.
