Ladies

Lady members have always been an integral part of Gosforth Golf Club which is illustrated by the fact that when the Club opened in March 1906 there were 50 lady members out of a total membership of 150. The welcome offered to lady members in the early 1900’s set the Club apart from many other clubs at that time and this has continued through to the present day. The Ladies’ Section of the Club was formed shortly after the Club was established.

The Ladies' Section now has almost 100 members and is a vibrant and dynamic part of the golf club. The Ladies' Section extends a warm welcome to players of all abilities, and whether a novice or a seasoned handicapper, Gosforth Golf Club is a friendly and beautiful place to play golf.

The Ladies play competitions on Sundays and Tuesdays. Nine hole competitions are played throughout the year to encourage those who are new to the game or who have less time to spare. There are also informal roll ups on Mondays and Fridays and Fun competitions in the winter. Social mixed competitions and mixed trophy competitions are held in the summer.

Three Ladies’ Open Competitions are held each year. These Opens are very popular and well attended by members and visitors alike. There is an Open Team Event in April, an Open Texas Scramble in July and an Open “Waltz” in September.

The ladies have an “Away Day” every year normally in August. This is always well attended and a great day out.

The Ladies' Section has three teams entered in the local leagues playing teams such as Alnmouth, Arcot Hall, Close House, City of Newcastle, Goswick, Morpeth, Newcastle United, Parklands, Prudhoe, Seahouses, Slaley Hall, Stocksfield, Tynemouth and Whitley Bay. In addition, in summer 2018 the Ladies' Section has a team entered in an Evening League. This Evening League is played over 9 holes, and is arranged for those who work and/or aren't selected for the league matches. The Ladies' Section also has a TR Percy team and the Norah Percy team (made up of ladies with higher handicaps). In 2017 the Gosforth ladies won the Norah Percy trophy. Ladies' matches against other clubs give an opportunity to play some of the best courses in the North East and home games offer a chance to welcome visitors to Gosforth.

The Ladies Section is closely involved in golf at both county and national level. Lynn Liddle is the 2018 Northumberland County Ladies Vets Captain; Sian Oakley is the 2018 Northumberland County Ladies Vice-Captain; Yvonne Coutts is a member of the Northumberland Ladies County Executive Committee; Bernie Legg is Northumberland Ladies County Assistant Honorary Secretary; Yvonne Steane is Northumberland Ladies County Handicap Advisor; Lisa Hamlin is the England Golf Ladies Regional Representative.

If you do decide to join us, we will appoint a lady member to introduce you to other members and if you are new to the game she will be able to mentor you through the game and rules etc. and take you out on the course. Ladies “Get-into-Golf” beginners’ courses are held throughout the year to encourage ladies to take up the game of golf. There is regular social media communication between members of the Ladies' Section so that everyone is kept fully informed.
