Welcome to our Ladies’ Section:

Welcome to the Ashton under Lyne Golf Club Ladies’ Section

We are pleased to be part of England Golf’s commitment to Women in Golf. We have signed the charter and it has been approved by the R and A and confirms our position with regard to the importance of encouraging more women and girls to play golf.

We are a well-established section and have working and non-working members. Tee times are available for workers to play in the evening in summer.

The section has been invigorated in the last few years by a growing Academy section for novice golfers. There are presently twenty of them. They have free membership in the first year and then reduced fees for the second and third years. They receive free group lessons from the Professional and are also allocated a Buddy (an experienced golfer) to assist them as they start their golf career, and play a few holes etc.

We hold many internal competitions, some formal but also some fun ones as the season draws to a close. We run supper nights every six weeks or so in a normal season and have a get together and meal then, as well as giving out prizes for the competitions. This benefit is not offered at all golf clubs and assists in us becoming a strong, supportive unit. We warmly welcome ladies of all ages and abilities. There are currently about 60 lady playing members plus eight juniors. There are also some twenty Academy members.

There are lots of opportunities to play competitive golf and we enter teams in the Scratch and Handicap League which are run by Lancashire Ladies golf. We also play in a local league which involves clubs in Tameside. It’s played in pairs and uses the Greensome format. That is a very good grounding for newer players to learn about match-play whilst also learning from a more experienced partner. We have won the Tameside League for five of the last six years.

We also play in the Bell Cup, organised by the Manchester and District Golf Alliance. This is for more premium players and we have won it in the past and reached finals’ day in the recent past.

We also support ladies’ competitions organised and run by the County Association where individuals can enter and compete against ladies from other clubs in a personal
capacity.

We welcome new members and also have an offer for experienced lady golfers to get a 2 years for the price of 1 membership offer.
