Welcome to the Ladies’ Section
The Ladies Section at Flempton Golf Club meet up regularly for informal roll ups, friendly matches or more serious competitions which are often followed by a cappuccino, sandwich or longer lunch. Though not all members can be found smiling on the course in the pouring rain we do make good use of the free draining soil and play throughout the year. We welcome newcomers of any level and offer coaching for both members and those thinking of joining.
Competitions are held in different formats to suit all members with handicaps. Friendly matches against other clubs in Suffolk and Cambridge offer players an opportunity to play on different courses.
An informal social roll up is held on Tuesdays through the year and is open to all with or without a handicap. It is a great way to meet other lady members and become integrated into the section. While a mixed eclectic social is held on Saturdays.
Inter-club matches are arranged both at a regional and national level.
