Kenilworth: Course Open.
The ladies at the club are a friendly and thriving group for all ages. The Ladies Match and Competitions Committee is responsible for the general management as well as the running of the competitions. Ladies are also represented on the main club Match and Competitions Committee, ensuring that their interests are not overlooked in the grand scheme of things!
The competitions diary has lots of opportunities to partake in a variety of formats.
Each month there are two Medal rounds. A Saturday round is usually played in conjunction with the Men’s Monthly Medal and tee times are bookable. Tuesday Medals have tee times running from 9am to 11.30am then 1.30pm to 2.45pm. All are played in three divisions based on handicaps.
In the Tuesday Medal, for those ladies new to golf, recovering from injury or no longer interested in playing 18 holes, we offer a 9 Hole competition at the back of the morning field.
On some weekdays we run Extra Medals, on a turn up and play basis, to provide a further opportunity to maintain your handicap.
On occasions there are 9 hole ‘qualifying’ competitions especially for those who struggle to enter the main qualifying competitions in the diary.
We run Greensomes, Foursomes, Better Ball and Alliances competitions – some serious, others more fun!
There are also Major Competitions available throughout the season where trophies can be won.
These include the Club Championship of 36 holes played on the same day, the Phelps Bowl (Medal play) and the Florence Booth (Par/Bogey) which are both 36 hole competitions played over consecutive weeks and the Nellie Kaye (Stableford).
For those ladies who cannot play on the Tuesdays, the same competitions are available at the weekends.
There are two Knock - Out Match play competitions – the Mitchell Bowl and the Lapin Trophy and these are played throughout the season.
The ladies run a popular team program too.
We have three teams (based on Handicap Divisions) who play ‘friendly’ matches. We also run a Scratch team, a Warwickshire Inter League team and a 9 Hole Evening League team. So hopefully plenty of opportunity to enjoy meeting opposition club members!
Further popular team events are the ones with the men! Through the winter months we combine with the Senior Men for Texas Scrambles (and we find the men quite charming) However, come the summer we compete with them for the ‘Masher’ trophy - a rolling pin - and it all changes!
Once a year we also compete with the general body of men for the Bone of Contention. This is usually played in a friendly though competitive atmosphere, especially as the ladies negotiate a very good deal over extra shots and holes already won before the start!
Finally we run a smaller competition diary throughout the winter months again with a variety of formats.
So whatever format appeals to you, we are sure that we can meet your aspirations and expectations.
