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 Glen 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 .

Following the ladies’ AGM at the beginning of November , we welcomed our new Lady Captain, Annette Shaw.
Annette has been a member for 15 years, lives locally , is married , with two sons and is also a grandmother. She plays off 24 handicap and is looking forward to her year of office. Following the AGM Annette performed her first duty as captain with her drive in. Money raised will go to a local charity – The Daisy Garland Trust. “ A journey of hope for children with epilepsy”
We have many lady members who enjoy the game of golf for fun, exercise and friendship, and we pride ourselves on our friendly welcome and the mentoring of new golfers at any level. We have ladies at board and committee level, who would be only too happy to make introductions.

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.
