Messages from Lady Captain and Lady President
Shipley Golf Club has a large and enthusiastic “Ladies Section” that welcomes all golfers from beginners to experienced.
We currently have around 130 members in the “Ladies Section”. Most are playing members and Tuesday is Ladies Day with a small number playing Saturday and Sundays. We have teams playing in the Yorkshire and Bradford and District Leagues, with success and we also arrange Friendly Matches for the higher handicap golfers.
A varied programme of competitions and events can be found online in the Club diary.
Most months we have a mixed golf competition with a shotgun start followed by a meal. These are usually well attended and a good way to mix in and meet other members.
There are various Open Days throughout the year and we welcome new members to join us at our beautiful Golf Course.
In addition to the golfing calendar we do have many social activities. All our Lady members, including Social membership are involved in the Club, whether it is lunch on a Tuesday or attending special events such as the Lady President’s Lunch to be held on Wednesday 13th March, a fashion show on 19th March by our professional Nathan Stead. Lady President’s Day on 4th June, Lady Captain’s Day on 2nd July, Lady Captain’s Charity Day on 6th August and the finale the Annual Dinner and prize presentation on 5th November.
There is a high standard of catering provided for any type of function or special celebration you may require and this is all in the hands of our two excellent chefs Sean and Bob supported by a very welcoming bar team lead by manager Josh.
The Ladies run a duplicate bridge section on alternate Wednesday afternoons during the winter months, new members are always welcome to join in.
