The Ladies Section of Gathurst Golf Club is a welcoming and friendly group. The midweek competition day is on Wednesdays with most tee times in the morning, but these are flexible, allowing ladies to also play in the evening. Prizes are given to the winner(s).
There are also weekend fixtures to play as Alternate Day or standalone competitions for full members. The ladies support Lancashire Ladies Golf Club Association playing in the South West Division in Handicap Shield and Bronze matches. They also play in an annual 36 hole District Championship competition against 6 other clubs in the Wigan and district area which is usually in mid-June. We also enter an annual Senior Ladies’ District Championship against the same 6 local clubs.
Each year there is an annual board knockout singles competition, The Holland Trophy, and a knockout called the Wilson Cup which is a foursomes’ competition. The ladies also support mixed competitions on Sundays throughout the season. They also offer two Ladies’ Opens; May and August.
However, if you just want to have a friendly and relaxing game, it is difficult to beat the amazing views out to Ashurst Beacon and Upholland.
The Ladies section also arrange many social events throughout the year which include Presentation evenings, dinners, demonstrations, theatre trips, visits to the races, gardens and special lunches etc. This is in addition to the club social events which are fun and have great entertainment.
