Welcome to Penrith Golf Club Ladies Section
Whether you are an experienced golfer, complete beginner or somewhere in between you will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome from the Ladies section at Penrith Golf Club. Lady Captain, Liz Horlacher invites you to come and have a coffee and a chat, introduce you to other members of the section, give you a tour of the Club, and answer any questions you may have about the section. All new Lady members will receive a detailed welcome pack for you to go through at your leisure which will enable you to thoroughly enjoy all that the Ladies section can offer.
The Ladies section have tee times reserved from 10.00am every Tuesday morning with a full schedule of competitions for you to take part in. Between April and the end of September there are individual medal, stableford and Par competitions with some other formats running alongside which are qualifiers for County and National competitions. During the winter months our Tuesday competitions tend to be team or pairs events, most of which have a fun element to them.
Every Tuesday there is also a Nine-hole competition, which is open for any Lady player, but is also a great way to get into playing competition golf before being stretched to playing 18 holes.
To accommodate Ladies who are unable to play on Tuesdays we have some tee times reserved on Sunday mornings and during the season the results are amalgamated with Tuesday’s scores. In the winter, the Sunday Business Ladies play a stableford league.
Each year our efforts are celebrated by an annual prize giving and dinner when the new Ladies’ Captain and committee members are voted in and the annual trophies presented – always a night to look forward to.
Penrith has one of the largest Ladies sections in the County and we compete in the County Leagues. We have four teams which play in home and away fixtures against other clubs. We encourage our members to get involved in the County competitions whether they be team or individual events.
We also arrange an annual ‘Away Day’ to another club to play and dine. There’s also a Christmas competition followed by a dinner and prize giving.
It’s not all golf in our section. After we have played we gather in the clubhouse for refreshments and a catch-up. The Ladies committee also organise social events such as quizzes, line dancing, bowling and walking groups.
