The 2020 season did not have the start I had envisaged when I was preparing for my new role as the Ladies’ Captain.
All my plans and preparations were most rudely halted by the Covid 19 Pandemic and all its restrictions.
We are now however beginning to return to playing our ‘beloved’ game.
Throughout the lockdown period The Ladies in the section kept in touch via social media and helped each other through the strange and (for some) difficult period of isolation.
This is not a surprise, as for such a small section we are a very friendly and inclusive group. Everyone is always there to support, encourage, befriend and (when necessary) commiserate with each other.
The Ladies of Atherstone are a truly special group, who turn up week in, week out, come rain or shine to play our quirky, at times challenging, but always beautiful, course (the views are stunning).
If you are considering joining a golf club for the first time or thinking of changing your club I strongly recommend that you ‘give us a go’.
The Ladies Competition days are Saturday’s & Wednesday’s so we can accommodate both working and part time/retired players. Ladies participate in Stableford, EWGA Medal and Trophy rounds, as well as in matches for the Warwickshire County League and Inter County Ladies Scratch League, also in Competitions such as Daily Mail, Ping, Vets and friendlies with local clubs. The major date in our diary is the annual (80 year old tradition) ‘Rose Bowl’ as part of the Tripartite Week with Hinckley & Nuneaton Golf Clubs. The year is certainly full and has something for everyone.
We now look forward to the year ahead, albeit a slimmed down version of what was originally planned and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support and encouragement I have been given so far.
