Brighton & Hove Golf Club has a thriving ladies’ section. We have competitions every week, with members able to participate either on the Wednesday or Saturday morning.
We love welcoming new members and have an excellent offer if you’re just discovering the wonderful game of golf or wish to do so: the Academy pack gives you six rounds of 18 holes of golf or 12 rounds of 9 holes of golf or any combination of the two, plus one individual lesson with our PGA Pro Anthony Killik, for only £100. Group lessons are regularly organised and only cost £5. Give a call to Lindsay on 01273 556482 or send her an email. She’ll be happy to give you all the information you need. Our hope is that you will see that for women as well as men, golf is a great way to stay healthy, make friends and have a lot of fun. We’ll look after you and take you out on the course so can discover the game in the best possible conditions.
We also organise regular free golf taster sessions for women. The first one this year was on March 19th and was a great success. A group of women spent an hour and half learning the basics of golf with Anthony Killik, our pro, before having tea and cakes in the clubhouse. The second one will be Sunday 30th April and we’re planning on going out on the course to play some fun games. Please join us! We love welcoming and nurturing beginners at Brighton & Hove Golf Club. Don’t take our word for it! This is the feedback we received from a couple of ladies who popped up to the club to check it out recently:
I would just like to thank you and everyone connected with the golf club for making Karen and myself feel most welcome today. We were both saying on the way home how everyone was friendly and chatty to us, even though we were complete strangers to you. You all made us feel part of your set up and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I was surprised Karen signed up for the taster session. I think she was too!! Thank you also for the loan of the club in order that we could pose with it and post the photos on our Facebook pages and let everyone have a giggle at our expense! The weather was glorious and the surroundings and views spectacular. I just hope the day of the taster sessions sees a glorious day as we had today. Lindsay, thank you so much for your kindness and pass on our grateful thanks to all the ladies who took the time to come and converse with us. We’re both looking forward to the “taster” day.
During golf season, we’re very busy with teams in Sussex County Divisions 2 and 4 and other various competitions. After a round, there’s always time for a drink and some food in our lovely clubhouse. We also have regular social afternoons on Saturdays, where we play 9 or 18 holes and get together to sample some amazing cakes and other sweet delicacies: we have some legendary bakers in the section!
We also go away together once year; this year, we’ll be going to Hampshire in September for four days of golf and fun. Come join us! We love our beautiful and challenging course with the amazing views and we’re sure you’ll love it too.
Our current Captain is Céline Graciet. For an insight into the life of our section and her journey to get her handicap down from 17 to 12, check out her golf blog.
