At West Midlands Golf Club, not only do we take regular bookings for our golf course in Birmingham, but we also offer a small and friendly ladies’ section on our grounds. The current team captain is Jill Priestly, bringing the group together every Wednesday morning for their fix of golf.
We warmly welcome new members of any golfing ability, as long as you enjoy it. The team meet to play at Widney Manor on Tuesday mornings, and play at West Midlands Golf Club on Wednesdays only.
We play for medals and have fun competitions, as well as stableford, which is a form of stroke-play whereby points are awarded according to the number of strokes taken to complete each hole. We compete in friendly matches against the women’s golf club in Warwickshire each May, and in July of each year we also have a mixed gender competition with a men’s team. We also raise money for charities, such as most recently for breast cancer care.
The summer can be an eventful time, making the best of the good weather with participation in team opens throughout the summer months. During nice weather, we enjoy completing a full 18-hole golf course.
Should bad weather prevent us from playing, we usually still meet up to talk over hot beverages and do alternative activities together such as tai chi. It’s a great group to be social with whilst sharing a common interest in golf.
If you’re interested in joining the women’s golf section, feel free to get in touch with Jill by calling her on 07749 842931 or via email at Jill@WestMidsGC.co.uk. She will be glad to answer any questions you may have for us.
