Dunstable Downs has a strong Ladies section that welcomes all new lady members. If you are looking to join a new club, we would love to meet you.
If you are new to golf, come and try one of our introductory free taster sessions called ‘Ladies who golf’. The session covers how to hold and swing the golf club, how to strike the ball, some putting with a little competition at the end of the session. Refreshment and equipment are provided, you just need to contact the office to book your place. Golf is a great way to get fit and make new friends, so come and join us. Then you can progress to our Academy Membership where you can learn how to play the game in more detail.
We are a friendly club offering both social and competitive golf. Our main competition day is Wednesday, and you can play in the morning or afternoon. After playing ladies gather for a sociable drink and a chat. For those ladies who are unable to play competitions on a Wednesday we have an alternative day on a Sunday. If you are over the age of 50 you can join our Senior Ladies, who meet every Monday morning for a fun game.
On Friday morning the ladies organise a 'roll-up’ which means you can just turn up at 10:00 am if you fancy a game and it is a good way for new members to meet other ladies. Friday games are usually fun team events and are very relaxed. In addition to our in-house competitions the ladies arrange friendly and competitive fixtures with many other clubs. You would be welcome to join the various teams which gives you an opportunity to play a variety of different courses. Every year the club enters and participates in the County Scratch and Handicap leagues.
The Mixed Section is well supported with many in-house competitions. During the year we also have friendly mixed matches against other clubs at home and away. These events are usually followed by a social informal enjoyable meal and again you will be welcome to join the team. The club also offers a regular program of social activities, such as bridge, quiz nights and themed events.
Being a member of Dunstable Downs Golf Club is a great way to meet and make new friends as well as enjoy some exercise. So why not come and join us?
