 The Ladies Section meet on:

            Tuesdays at 12.30pm - for a 9 hole fun game

Thursdays at 09.30am - for 18 holes

  Saturdays at 09.00am - for 18 holes


With Spring comes a whole season of fun events.  We have friendly matches, Away Days and a Ladies' holiday to look forward to. Also, a roll-up 3 times a week; Qualifiers to keep your handicap active; lots of friendly ladies to help you and encourage you to join in - and this is only the Ladies Section! The Club have more social events and weekend competitions.  Please support these activities and have a great golf season - your Captain, Louise Vincent.

Change of Team Colours - Our Captain has made the decision to change our team colours from white shirts and purple jumpers to LIME GREEN shirts but keeping the purple jumpers.  These have been delivered and are now with Neil Burke for the logo to be added and will be available shortly.  The approximate cost is 15.

HANDICAP REVIEW - this year's handicap review has now taken place using the new CONGU handicapping rules as of 1st January 2018.  The main change has been to extend all handicaps to a maximum of 54 rather than 28 for men and 36 for ladies. This has meant that some ladies may well have gone up more than the usual 2 shots.  Please see our noticeboard to see if you are on the list of handicap changes - hopefully some of you will have gone down!

ON-LINE TEE BOOKING: Horne Park uses an on-line system of booking tee times.  Tuesday afternoons and Thursday morning tee times should be automatically on the booking system, but any other tee times should be booked using the on-line system.  Ask in the Pro Shop for your 'membership number' - this will be your 'login'.  Go to the main Horne Park website and create a PIN - You will be asked for your membership number and your date of birth.  Create your PIN which is 4 numerals.  Then when you login using your membership number and your PIN number you will get the option to book any date within 3 weeks.

FRIENDLY MATCHES - we have lots of friendly matches, home and away.  Please look on the noticeboard to see when the next match is due.  The sign-up sheet with the relevant details will go up a few weeks before a match and the team will be posted at least 2 weeks before.  Everyone is encouraged to sign up as these matches are a lot of fun and you get to play at other courses and meet other ladies.

WINTER KNOCKOUTS 2017/2108 - these are into the Finals! Rosemary Golby is playing against Maggie Stansfield in the Singles.  Michelle Singleton & Rosie Christie are into the Doubles final. 

SUMMER KNOCKOUTS 2017 - Singles winner Mary Davis-White, runner up Kerry Davis-White. Doubles winners Sue Hunt & Doreen Benson, runners-up Rosie Christie & Michelle Singleton.  The 2017 Plate final winner Rosie Christie.  Well done all of you.

The SUMMER Eclectic 2017 was taken from all the qualifying games played in the summer where the scores are entered into the computer -  showing your best score on each of the 18 holes. The winner of the first division was Joy Tilley and winner of the second division was Gill Love. The Order of Merit (OOM) winner was also Gill Love - so well done Gill.  The OOM is taken from your position on the leaderboard at each qualifier you enter, from 1st down to 8th and your best 10 positions over the summer were used.

The WINTER eclectic (click for details) will be taken from the best 10 cards played over the winter months on Thursdays and Saturdays.  Up to 10 cards can be used, signed off by a committee member, with the word ECLECTIC at the top and your name but don't forget to put the date on it when you use it.  Hand your completed cards to one of the Competition Committee who will make a report of everyone's best score on each of the 18 holes over the winter.  The overall winner will collect an award at the following AGM.

For all new Winter members please see our Welcome Letter and notes on competitions we hold over the year.  There is also a sign up sheet on the noticeboard where you can put your name and contact details asking any of the ladies to play a round of golf with you. Unless you joined Horne with a handicap already, from April you can submit 3 x 18 hole cards (or a mixture of 9 and 18 = 54) to get your handicap.  Please ask any of the ladies to give you more details.

TUESDAYS - this is a fun 9-hole game for all the ladies, including non-members (you just have to pay a green fee).  Tuesdays are a great way for new members to meet the ladies. Our Vice-Captain, Joy Tilley, arranges the Tuesday games although she may well ask one or two others to help. 

THURSDAYS & SATURDAYS - Please put your names on the sheets which are on the noticeboard in the ladies' changing rooms.  If you find you are not able to be there after all or you want to be added to the list, please phone the Pro Shop (01342 844443) before the sign-in time. 

If you have any questions or ideas for the website please get in touch with any of the committee.
