A message from Lady Captain, Helena
Lilleshall Hall Golf Club, and in particular the Ladies’ Section, is renowned as a friendly and welcoming place to start your golfing journey.
As LHGC has now signed up to “The Women in Golf Charter” we are holding an open afternoon on Saturday, 21st May from 2pm-6pm.
We would be delighted to meet you, show you our course and clubhouse and give you information of our offers for women starting out in golf. As women starting in golf for the first time you would be given a “Buddy” who would help you with anything you need to know as well as introducing you to other players.
As a club we have a full calendar of golf events and social activities where there are numerous opportunities for women to participate. Every year we hold medal, stableford and fun competitions as well as Open Days when members from other clubs can play our course. Last year the Lady Captain introduced “9 and Wine” fun competitions which are played late afternoon, and these proved very popular especially with our working ladies. Throughout the season we enter a scratch league team, a handicap league team and a mini-league team to represent Lilleshall in county competitions. Mixed golf is also proving popular, whether or not you have a partner. We play some games within the club but also friendly matches against other clubs for women and for mixed pairs.
Our ladies’ section has approximately 90 members of all ages and they are a testament to the health benefits of playing golf. Not only the exercise from walking and hitting a ball but also the fresh air. We are fortunate to have a very beautiful course with a variety of trees and wildlife. Everything from birds, ducks, rabbits, the occasional hare, foxes, squirrels, and the woodpecker near out 12th tee who insists on drilling loudly whilst we are taking our tee shots.
The professional shop is run by Mark and Lisa Shervill with help from Paul Shirt and one or other is always on hand to help with any advice or anything you may require. All are excellent coaches for our sport.
I hope you find the time to look into the possibilities Lilleshall Hall Golf Club can offer you and I’m looking forward to meeting you.
Helena Price (Lady Captain, 2022/23)
