The Thirsk and Northallerton Golf Club Ladies Section 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.
In addition to the weekly golf, we have Teams which are part of the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association (YLCG) Inter-Club Competition https://www.ylcga.co.uk

We have two clubs chosen this year where we will have a home and away match. This is to encourage new ladies and higher handicappers to get match experience and visit another club. We match a more experienced player with a newer player for a fun day out. (Handicap 0-54).
We have a mixed (men and women) completion with another club and have an away and home match. We will be encouraging our mixed groups to play in Mixed Opens as well which are held all over the County and UK.
