Letchworth Golf Club was formally opened on 15th of April 1905, with 35 Lady Members & 51 Gentlemen. Since then there has been a thriving Ladies section even through both World wars to the present day.
Our course & facilities are of an excellent standard.
The main course, the 18 hole Heritage course, enjoyable and challenging, is Par 72 for the Ladies. Renowned for the quality playing surfaces, it has hosted several county and inter county events.
The Academy course has 6 par 3 holes of varying length, with tees, green and bunkers maintained to a similar quality to the Heritage course. It is ideal for beginners to get started and for experienced golfers to hone their shot game skills. Help is at hand for ladies new to golf to help them meet other new members and to develop their skills.
The practice area is amongst the best in the county, with a perfectly maintained chipping green and bunker . The Driving Range has grass tees and top quality artificial surfaces in covered bays for winter and wet weather practice.
Tuesday morning start sheet is reserved exclusively for ladies. Formal and “friendly” competitions are played most Tuesday mornings. Alternatively, Ladies who cannot play on Tuesday can play in competitions on Saturdays.
The large variety of competitions include medals, stableford, knock-outs, four balls and foursomes as well as some very imaginative fun and social competitions.
Team golf is also well catered for - the Ladies’ section has an A and B Scratch Team, a Pearson Trophy Team and numerous friendly teams to play against clubs in Hertfordshire and surrounding Counties. Mixed foursomes matches against other clubs are very popular. The Bank Holiday Mixed events are wonderful golf and social events.
Regular Social events are a feature of the club. Members enjoy Bridge, Quiz Nights, Musical Nights, Themed events and Draw Nights to name a few.
The Ladies Captain raises funds during the year for her nominated charities which this year are
The Garden City hospice
Each Baby counts (The Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecologys national quality improvement programme to reduce the number of Babies who die or are left severely disabled as a result of incidents during labour.)
I hope you all enjoy your golf and the companionship of being a Letchworth Golf Club member in the year ahead.
