Richmond Golf Club Ladies Section

At Richmond Golf Club we are very proud of our very successful  Ladies Section which currently has over sixty active members, who play golf on a regular basis whatever the season.

We welcome new players of all abilities, whether you are a scratch player, a seasoned handicapper, or a novice, you will find Richmond a friendly place to play your golf.

Taster Days

If you are thinking about taking up golf we offer regular Taster Days, where with other prospective members, you can get together with our professional Bradley Rowntree, and other lady members and we will show you how enjoyable golf can be, not only as a sport but also a social activity.

If you do decide to join us we will appoint a lady member as your mentor to look after you, she will mentor you through the game, the rules, the dos’ and don’ts of golf and introduce you to the other members. She will be there to help whenever you need her.

Golf is a great way to meet and make new friends!

Quote received from a lady currently taking part in the Taster sessions.

 'Please accept my thanks for all you've done for us this year , I have thoroughly enjoyed all the coaching and mentoring.'  


Once we have inspired in you the confidence to play a few rounds on the course and achieve your handicap, you may want to play in the ladies competitions.

We have regular competitions throughout the year on Wednesdays and Sundays. The competitions can be seriously competitive or fun, but either way they are an opportunity to meet and make new friends.

Friendly and County Matches

If you are a competitive golfer Richmond Ladies Section compete in the Teesside Lady Golfers Alliance and the Yorkshire County Ladies Golf Association, as well as playing host to, and visiting other clubs for frequent friendly matches.  

Mixed competitions

Should you tire of playing all of your golf with ladies you could enter our mixed competitions.

We have a full calendar of mixed events throughout the summer, they are great fun; don’t worry, if you don’t have a male golf partner, we will find one for you!  

 Social Events

The club organise a various selection of social events during the year, everything from a quiz to tribute nights, they are great fun and  an opportunity to share some off course enjoyment with your new found friends. 

 So if you feel you would like to join us please get in touch.
