Ladies Section

Welcome from the Lady Captain

As Lady Captain it is my pleasure to welcome you to Olton Golf Club  where you will be assured a warm and friendly reception from our ladies

Ladies have a long history of being part of Olton Golf Club. The original eight lady members soon rose to twenty five lady members. Even with this small numbers they were still able to form their own competitions as well as playing in some mixed foursomes.  In 1895 the Olton Ladies Section was formally inaugurated into the club. The first official competition for the Olton Ladies was the Captain’s Prize for medal play offered by the men’s Captain Mr W F Hayden.

The Olton ladies were among  the very first to play female golf in the midlands.

We have a active ladies section with a range of handicaps, most of who play  regularly  in   competitions both on a Wednesday which is our main ladies day. For those ladies unable to play on a Wednesday, Sunday is the other official alternate day. 

MATCHES

We have a  scratch team  and a league team who won the league in 2017.

Our club team encourages all our ladies,  regardless of handicaps to participate in other friendly team matches.

Our 9 hole league is also very popular for those ladies who still like to play in a competitive  but friendly match after work.

A number of our ladies also play for the county 2nd team

OPENS & INVITATIONS

We run several ladies opens throughout the year including a 3 ball alliance, seniors pairs open with our ladies Saturday pairs open which is extremely popular, along with our spring invitation which is a great opportunity to invite a friend

The Charity AM AM is one of the highlights of our golfing calendar

There is  plenty of opportunity to play social and friendly golf as well as playing in the fun mixed competitions which are organised throughout the year

Our Professional Charles Haynes runs a group lesson every Friday morning which is a great opportunity to improve your golf as well as enjoying a  social coffee and chat after the lesson

We have great social events running throughout the the year from Charity fund raisers to themed nights, Friday night fish suppers, Sunday lunches  to the annual News Years celebrations

I look forward to welcoming you to Olton
