LADIES’ TEAM GOLF
The ladies section has busy seasons with plenty of matches played, plenty of opportunities for all abilities. There is a great team ethos and enthusiasm within the section. Ladies wishing to play in matches can sign up online, on the team sheets in the ladies locker room or by contacting the appropriate team organisers.
Harborne Ladies play each year in the Warwickshire County League. The League is divided into four divisions which are drawn every two years at the County Dinner at Copt Heath. The first year draw specifically states which is to be the home side for that year. We play the same clubs in the second year and the venues are reversed. We usually play five matches in our respective divisions and the winners of each division are then through to the semi-finals and subsequently the final. Although the leagues are only drawn every two years there is a winner each year. The team consists of seven players.
The teams currently in our division are: Atherstone, Coventry Finham, Nuneaton, Walmley and The Warwickshire
The County League matches are always midweek. Ladies with handicaps 24 and below are encouraged to sign up, either on the list on the noticeboard in the Ladies’ Locker Room.
INTER TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
This event takes place each year at a different club within the county on the first Monday in September. Each team consists of five players who play 18 holes Medal format. There are two trophies - one for best gross score and one for best team nett score. The team is selected from those ladies who have played in the Country League during the season.
