Lady Captain 2021 - Jo Cook
Welcome to the Ladies section at Long Sutton Golf Club.
On joining the section, you can be assured a very warm welcome and made to feel fully included in the goings on within the section. I am hugely honoured to be this years ladies captain and I have a fantastic Vice-Captain in Aideen Roche and a very active ladies committee. I am looking forward to working closely with both this year.
We are a growing section with now over 90 members with over half of these ladies regularly taking part in our Wednesday ladies morning. Our ladies mornings are a mixture of Individual and Team games. Through the winter we play the Solheim Cup over four rounds and a Winter league. During the busy summer, we play our Summer knock out competitions, as well as the Interclub league, Rogers Cup and Coronation foursomes to name a few. We hold a Ladies and a Mixed open during the summer, both are well attended events. The ladies are encouraged to enter the club competitions at the weekend as well as the mixed summer knockouts. We also hold events with our senior section through the year, these are always good fun.
The course has seen many changes over the last twelve months, the bunkers have been improved, water features added. Investment in machinery and drainage has meant the course looks in fantastic condition whatever the time of year. It is a golfing challenge and weather you are a new or returning player, you will be suitably impressed.
Our newly refurbished modern Clubhouse is a great place to relax after a round of golf, Extensive choice of freshly made, good food sourced locally, a vast ranges of drinks, friendly and attentive staff, you won’t be disappointed.
Golf professional, Richard Antrobus and his assistant Karen will welcome you to the clubs’ professional shop. Richard offers the ladies lessons at our newly refurbished floodlit driving range, as well as on course tuition. The shop does have an increasing range of ladies clothing plus all the other essentials you would expect to find.
As a section we are enormously proud of the amount of money we are able to raise through the year by holding different fund-raising events. This year our efforts will be donated to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, a great service and I will be committed to raising as much as possible.
Finally, whether you are a seasoned golfer or new to the game, Long Sutton is a great club to be a part of, being part of the ladies section will give you plenty of opportunity to improve your game and most importantly enjoy you golf.
I really look forward to seeing you at the club or on the course soon.
