Melanie Garland: Captain 2020

Ladies Section

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 in the 1st,4t and 6th divisions. In addition we also have a team entered in the Evening League which 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).

The Gosforth Ladies have had a very successful year in 2019.
The Northumberland County Championships were held at Gosforth Golf Club this year. Sian Oakley was the County Captain in 2019, taking Northumberland to their highest placing in County Match Week in many years. This year, 2020, is the Centenary of the Northumberland Ladies County Golf Association (NLCGA). Gosforth Golf Club was one of the six clubs that formed the Association in 1920 and will host one of the big Centenary competitions in May.

Sam Malone won the Gosforth Golf Club Championship in 2019, beating Lynne Liddle in the final on the 18th hole.

There was great success at County level in 2019. Our 1st Team were the winners of the 2nd Division and will play in the 1st Division in 2020. Our 3rd Team won the 7th Division and so are promoted to the 6th Division. In singles events, Melanie Garland won the prestigious Nora Baker Trophy for the best gross score at the Spring Meeting. Gosforth Golf Club won both the team prizes at the Spring meeting and another team prize at the Autumn Meeting. Pauline Rourke was a member of the winning partnership who won the 4BBB competition. At Veterans competitions, Annette Storr won the prize for the Bronze section and Gosforth Golf Club won the Millennium Trophy.

Our club is well represented at County administration level. Bernie Legg is the Secretary of the NLCGA, Yvonne Steane is Handicap Advisor and Yvonne Coutts is a County Committee member. Lisa Hamlin is the England Golf Northern Region Representative and will be responsible for the organisation of County Match Week, which will be held in Northumberland, at Alnmouth Golf Club, in June. Jane Benn and Jan Coates are delegates on the County Vets Committee.

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

Then do join us.
