Ladies Section

CHURSTON LADIES PLEASED TO BE BACK PLAYING AGAIN AND EVER HOPEFUL! 
Thanks to a Churston Lady ( Heather Jeffreys) for the poem

A GOLFER’S DREAM

I must be off to the links again,
for the call of the fairways wide,
is a loud call
and a clear call
that cannot be denied.
It fills me with a mad desire,
to realise my dreams,
of  tee shots long and irons strong,
to the heart of all the greens.
Then all I want is the magic putt,
and the straight and powerful drive,
to complete the course,
using skill and force,
in a brilliant 65!

Churston Ladies held their annual 4  Ball Team event on Friday September 4th.
An enjoyable day was had by all, in spite of all the Covid restrictions.

Churston Ladies (founded 1902)

Welcome to Churston ladies’ section of Churston Golf Club, founded in 1902. We are an active and friendly section. Our weekly Tuesday competitions are followed by a presentation, the ideal social get together to meet and get to know everyone. Booking for competitions and friendly games is on-line. We welcome working ladies, who are able to play in most competitions on the weekend before a Tuesday competition.

Churston ladies represent the club in three Devon county team competitions, as well as the Annoddat team competition, thus catering for a range of handicaps. We also have a thriving vets section with friendly matches against neighbouring clubs and a monthly three ball team fun competition for everyone to enjoy.

Our club professional Glenn Richards runs a Get into Golf programme for complete beginners to golf.A member of the ladies’ committee is solely responsible for new members and will introduce you to other new members .


 

Lexi Dart

It was lovely to catch up with Lexi Dart during her Christmas break back in the UK from Delaware University in the USA. At least at home she got a lie in – twice a week, her day at University starts at 0530 for gym work, before her academic classes, and then golf practice until tea time. And, depending on her schedule, there is at least one other early start. Lexi, 19, is ranked three of nine young women golfers there, together with the seven young men who make up their group.

She admits it was hard to settle to start with, but is now looking forward to returning this week, this term continuing until June. Her degree course in landscape architecture lasts for four years, and while golf course design is a future possibility, she is making no decisions yet. However she will be back in time to take part, if she is selected, in the annual South West inter counties ladies match week, this year being held at Dudsbury GC, Dorset at the end of June.

Meanwhile, we miss her, as do her family, and we wish her well.

In July 2017 we successfully renewed our GOLFMARK accreditation. While working towards this the ladies’ section decided to use the Recruitment Action Plan to promote woman’s golf. The ladies’ section worked very hard to produce a three stage plan.
Get swinging, take it to the course followed by a taster membership. The project proved extremely successful and will provide a great platform for growth in this section. Find out more in the PDF link below.
