Messages from Lady Captain and Lady President
Shipley Golf Club has an enthusiastic “Ladies Section” that welcomes all - the experienced golfer, those wishing to improve and those taking up golf for the first time.
We currently have 132 members in the “Ladies Section” so there is plenty of competition. Ladies Day is on Tuesdays, with a small number playing the competitions on Sundays. We enter teams in the Yorkshire and Bradford & District Leagues, with success, and we arrange Friendly Matches to encourage all levels of golf.
A varied programme of competitions and events can be found in the Club Diary.
Mixed golf at the Club is also very popular. Some of these competitions have a shotgun start and include a meal afterwards – they are always a lot of fun and very well supported.
We have various Open Days throughout the year and we would love to welcome you to our beautiful golf course.
In addition to the golfing calendar we also have a lively Social membership including ladies who for one reason or another no longer play golf but still wish to maintain their links with the Club and enjoy the companionship this brings. We encourage all our social members to come down on a Tuesday to join their friends for lunch, attend special get togethers such as the Lady President’s Lunch on Thursday 23rd March. the Bring & Choose Lunch on Tuesday 14th Marchl which will be followed by a Fashion Show organised by our Pro Nathan, Lady President’s Day 13th June, Lady Captain’s Day 11th July and our Annual Dinner in November. We value the attendance of our social members on these occasions and they don’t disappoint us.
We are extremely fortunate to have two wonderful chefs, Sean & Bob who know just how to tickle our taste buds with their excellent cuisine which always goes down well with members and visitors alike.
We also have a group of ladies who enjoy meeting to play Bridge on a regular basis and anyone who plays and wishes to join them would be made very welcome.
