The Ladies Section at Flempton Golf Club meet up regularly for informal roll ups, fun friendlies or more serious competitions which are often accompanied by a mug of hot cappuccino, a sandwich snack or a 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.
Inter-club matches are arranged both at a regional and national level.
To find out about membership of Flempton Golf Club, please visit our Membership Section.
Ladies Roll Ups are on Tuesday morning at 9:30/9:45.
Roll Up Coaching on Monday & Friday mornings For both members and those looking to join. Roll up.

The charity this year will be Tools With A Mission, http://www.twam.uk/
TWAM – What we do
Our mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world. We send around 22 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year.
The collection bin for tools is in the Flempton Golf club car park by the bottle bank. A list of tools wanted is attached to the bin.
TWAM – Why we do it
We want to support local people supporting their own communities through livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment.
