Hallamshire encourages juniors to learn to play golf. We run regular Junior Girls coaching sessions with our professional team. The professionals are all available for private individual or smaller group lessons. We are fortunate to have Holly as a great example and mentor for the girls.
There are group sessions intended for girls new to golf (Wednesdays at 6pm) and for improving golfers. All ages are welcome, from aged 5 until school leaving age.
No equipment is needed for new players; wearing suitable clothes for activity is advised and trainers are acceptable.
We have a growing group of junior girl golfers. They may take part in junior competitions and events and once they achieve the required level of handicap they are welcomed to join in with all the ladies' competitions.
We are delighted to have been awarded the Women in Golf Charter from the R&A.
We are keen to promote Women in Golf and have various initiatives in place to encourage inclusion at our club. From Juniors to adults we would encourage you to contact us to discuss the best ways to experience Golf in a safe and comfortable environment.
We have also had a huge response to the beginners golf taster sessions with Joe, 34 Ladies have signed up. We will be looking to run similar sessions in 2021.
Check out the R&A Charter for more details of the initiatives.
One of the great things about women's golf in Yorkshire is that all women who wish to are able to play in club teams. The YLCGA organise interclub leagues with teams playing home and away matches against 3 other clubs in Yorkshire during the first 4 months of the season. There is a draw made at the end of the preceding season and matches are arranged to suit schedules/diaries.
We have a large active ladies' section and we are able to enter teams in four of the leagues.
Scratch - a team of 7 players with HI up to 36.4 (with no giving or receiving of shots).
Handicap 'A' - a team of 7 players with HI up to 27.4.
Handicap 'B' - a team of 7 players with HI 18.5 up to 36.4
Weekend League - a team of 3 players with HI up to 36.4
Playing team golf is exciting and rewarding. We go to other lovely courses in Yorkshire and meet many lovely players. It's a great way to play other courses in a very cost effective manner (i.e free).
We enter a team into the Annodata competition each year. This pitches a team of five against teams from all over the country. The finals are held in Spain in November 2021!
One pair from the club is entered into the Daily Mail Foursomes. This is another national competition. Early rounds are played locally but eventually the last few pairs are invited to play at Slaley Hall in Northumberland in October 2021.
We were one of the founders of the Sheffield Ladies Evening League and enjoy playing sociable team golf against our neighbouring clubs.
