Lady Captain 2021/22

The Ladies’ Section Captain this year is Carolyn Lees (Carrie) supported by her Vice Captain, Alison Grove, and the Ladies’ Committee.

Carrie’s charity for her year is Age UK Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and she is hoping, as COVID restrictions relax, that the Club will again be able to hold more successful fund raising events.

In her role as Lady Captain Carrie is very keen to support and be involved in the Club initiative to develop and expand the Junior Section under the direction of Club Professional, Steve Russell, and the new Junior Committee, as well as encouraging more new ladies to take up golf under the Women in Golf Charter.

Carrie is looking forward to her year in office and, as restrictions continue to be eased, wishes everyone a successful and happy year’s golfing - with a more relaxed social life on and off the course!

Cookbook

A good start was made in 2020, with the support and help of members, to raise funds for both Captains’ charities and the Club by publishing a collection of members’ recipes called “The Gourmet Golfers’ Cookbook” and the books will continue to be sold during the year.

Fixtures

The Ladies hold their competitions on Wednesdays and at weekends, with bookings being made through ClubV1 on-line or through the Pro-shop. During lockdown the Club introduced a tee booking system which has proved popular with a lot of members and now normally ladies can book into their competitions at any time during the day. However, there are certain events and team competitions during the year where the tees are blocked for the ladies. The Wednesday and weekend Medals and Stablefords are stand-alone competitions, but some Minor Trophy competitions are run on both days to give all ladies a chance to enter.

Bridgnorth ladies have teams which have been very successful playing in competitive matches in Shropshire Scratch and Handicap Leagues. The higher handicap ladies also enjoy taking part in the County Mini League which is an excellent introduction to match play. Finally Friendly matches with other Clubs are very popular, giving ladies an opportunity to play other courses in a relaxed way whilst widening their circle of golfing friends.

Joining

The Ladies Section is delighted to welcome new members. Outside of lockdown restrictions, when the Club is fully open, the normal procedure is for applicants to be invited to an informal meeting with the Lady Captain and Ladies Secretary to have a chat and a tour of the Club facilities. This also gives applicants the opportunity to ask questions.

In the locker room there is a list with names and contact details of ladies who are happy to have a game with a new member. This also has the benefit for the new member to meet more ladies and be encouraged to take part in the ladies’ activities.

Hopefully it will not be too long before the Club is fully open and the normal welcome to new ladies can re-commence.

Ladies Lessons

Group lessons for ladies only (beginners and improvers) are held on Monday evenings 6-7.30pm during the Spring and Summer. The lessons are provided by Steve Russell, PGA qualified coach and cost only £5.00 per lesson. These sessions are an opportunity to learn to play or improve your game in a friendly, fun and no pressure environment.
