I am pleased to say that I am now preparing for my 3rd Term as Ladies Captain as the 2020 & 2021 seasons were badly affected by the Covid Pandemic and all it’s cancellations and restrictions.
Over the last two years the Section has had to amend and adapt it’s competitions and systems, but in true Atherstone fashion, we have made the best of a bad job and got on with it as best that we could.
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, EG Medal and Trophy rounds, as well as in matches for the Warwickshire County League, we also participate 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 also have a very attractive membership fee for Ladies of £599 per year for full membership to the club.
I would be happy to arrange for potential new members to play a trial round with myself or another lady member. I can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We now look forward to the year ahead, fingers crossed that we are able to compete in all of our planned activities uninterrupted and in a safe and controlled manner.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support and encouragement I have been given over the past two years and I am looking forward to a full and varied 2022 Season.
