As Lady Captain for 2022, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all lady golfers, whether experienced or new to the game.
Originally from London, I moved to the Market Harborough area in 2006, only taking up golf in mid 2013 but encouraged throughout by the generosity and kindness from within the Ladies' Section. I was made to feel at home straightaway and this is very much the hallmark of our section.
For those starting out in the game our friendly professional team, led by our Head Professional Kegan Jamieson, run a number of academies throughout the year and they will soon have you confident enough to venture out onto the course and join in with our organised competitions. Our course offers considerable variety and every hole feels different so there is always a new challenge. The club is conscious of the natural world and I recommend opening the Environment tab on the club website.
The ladies play on a Tuesday morning and we also have an alternative day on a Saturday. Our competitions are played over both days so that everyone has a chance to join in. Ladies meet up to play on other days as well so you will always be able to enjoy a social game in the company of good friends.
We organise competitions all year round and our ladies enjoy a good mix of individual qualifying medals and stablefords, team and fun events providing the ideal way of getting to know everyone.
For those that enjoy competitive golf, we are affiliated to the Leicestershire and Rutland Ladies County Golf Association and we enter teams in both the Scratch and Handicap Leagues and various knockout competitions.
Being on the Leicestershire/Northamptonshire border the club is ideally placed to arrange friendly matches against ladies sections in neighbouring counties. These are great social events and an ideal way to experience other courses and meet other golfers.
Whatever your age or handicap status we would love you to join us and we look forward to meeting you soon.
