The Ladies’ Section at Thirsk & Northallerton Golf Club
2020 Lady Captain Terri Lewis
2020 Lady Vice Captain Karolina Aurelius
The Ladies Section of the golf club has 70 + members. It is an active section which is fully integrated into the Club. We have a diverse Committee which shares the responsibilities of running the Ladies Section.
We look forward to welcoming new members; or if you are curious and want to see what golf is like. Come and visit! We encourage new members to join in both competitions and social golf. Most competitions are held on Wednesday mornings when the ladies have a tee reservation. To accommodate working ladies, some competitions are held on Saturday when, in general, there are no start times. There are various fun ‘roll-up’ games that take place on Mondays, and Saturdays.
The Club Diary, or ‘What’s On?’ (on the Website) has a list of Competition dates for the year, where there is also a brief description of the Trophy Competitions. For further information, members can refer to the Diary or look in the files in the ladies’ changing room (‘office’ area).
In addition to the weekly golf, we have Teams which are part of the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association (YLCG) Inter Club Competition www.ylcga.org.uk.

We have quite a few ‘social lady members’ who do not play golf any more, or play a lot less than they used to. We are very pleased that many of them come to the Club to join in for coffee with, and join in at various social events.
