Welcome to the website of the Ladies Section of Worcester Golf and Country Club and thank you for interest in our Club and hope that you see something that interests you.
Our current Lady Captain, Penny Herriman, has chosen to support the Worcestershire Association of Carers this year. A local charity that supports and advises the 63,000 unpaid adult carers in our county. Please look at their website for further information. It is one of the support groups around that we all hope we will never need to consult, but sadly many of us do.
Our Ladies Section has about 95 members, of whom about 60 play competitively on a regular basis on Tuesdays, our Competition Day. We offer a wide range of competitions which include Medals, Stablefords and Pars, along with Winter Foursomes, an Eclectic and a variety of fun formats during the winter. We also have a Scratch Team in the Midlands Scratch League, another team in the Droitwich League and run a good range of inter-Club matches as friendlies, thereby providing good competition across the whole handicap range. We hold Opens for Ladies, Senior Ladies and Mixed competitors plus a variety of other formats which allow us to compete in conjunction with or against our gentlemen members.

Our beautiful parkland course is well managed and is usually playable all year round and we are lucky to have Graham Farr as the Club Professional. Graham and his team offer us support and advice on all matters Golf, and are a vital part of our Taster Ladies Programme for beginners and returners, which aims to provide free lessons with Graham, a limited temporary membership during the summer and mentoring from our members, the object being to get more Ladies playing and hopefully joining our section.
A number of our Ladies also play Bridge and play both informally at the Club and friendly matches against other Clubs.
Hopefully there is something in our Club which does interest you and we hope to hear from you or see you there in the near future.
