We have a very active and friendly ladies section here at Hallamshire. Ladies of all ages and all abilities are most welcome to come along and join in with our growing membership of over 100 ladies.

The Ladies’ section at Hallamshire is a friendly, welcoming and supportive group. We are also the largest and the strongest in the area with relatively more lower handicap players than most clubs. There are many factors contributing to this but the most obvious is the wonderful course which is maintained beautifully all year and has some of the best greens in the country.
Our main Ladies Competitions are on Wednesdays but we also run competitions most Saturdays and Thursdays and on some Sundays. We have regular 9 hole qualifying competitions for those with less time or who don’t feel up to the full 18 holes and have three 9 hole courses approved by England Golf. In addition to handicap qualifying competitions the ladies enjoy a wide variety of more relaxed formats including team matches, knockouts, mixed and social golf. There are also a few drawn competitions which bring the different handicap divisions together.
We enter teams in all the Yorkshire inter-club leagues (Scratch, ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘ADP’). We also enter the Mail on Sunday team competition. We were the founding club of the Sheffield Ladies Evening League (a friendly matchplay league played over 9 holes on summer evenings).
New members are encouraged to meet and join in with our other 100 or more lady members. There is a member of the Ladies’ Committee with a special role in helping new members integrate not only with the golf but at the many social functions organisedat the Club.
We offer a warm welcome to all, so why not come and join a very successful and ambitious section.
