Ladies' Section

Winners of the MLCGA Div II Interclub Scratch League 2011 & 2012

The Ladies' section is for both five and seven-day lady members. It is a lively section with over 80 members – playing and social - as well as some Academy members who are learning to play. Handicaps range from single figures to a maximum of 54. As a section of Stanmore Golf Club, it is affiliated to Middlesex Golf Ltd.

England Golf or Club Medal and Stableford competitions are played monthly throughout the year. The highlights of the year are the Spring and Autumn and Invitation meetings. Both friendly and competitive matches are played with other clubs in Middlesex including the Pearson Trophy and the Inter-Club Scratch [5-a-side] Competition. The Kiwi Trophy is contested by the Lady Captain’s team and the Vice Captain’s team. The proceeds of one of the two Eclectic competitions are donated to St Luke’s Hospice. On free days the Lady Captain may organise fun format competitions.

The Lady Captain’s year of office begins in November at the AGM, which is also when the majority of the trophies are presented. There are two major social events – the Christmas lunch early in December and the mid-winter dinner in February, at which any trophies not awarded at the AGM are presented.

For further information please contact the current Lady Captain or Secretary.
