The Club - Sections - Ladies


Welcome to the Ladies section of Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club. We have a large friendly section of approximately 80 players of all abilities. I am sure you will enjoy the amiable atmosphere of the Club and will soon discover the challenges which our 2 courses can offer.  

The majority of ladies meet on Thursdays to play medal competitions, stableford competitions and fun activities but a few ladies meet on Saturdays and some ladies play social golf on Tuesdays. However, Thursday is our main day and after playing we meet for lunch/snacks in the Clubhouse and enjoy some friendly conversation. 

In order to enter our trophy, stableford or medal competitions you will need to have an active handicap or submit three cards to obtain your handicap. We shall be pleased to help you with this should you require a playing partner or need help in completing your cards. When visiting anywhere for the first time it is always a good idea to spend a little time reading the notices in the Clubhouse and especially in the Ladies area, as this will help you become familiar with all our activities. 

In our Club diary you will be able to read about our social events, competitions and fixtures.  The Ladies play between 12 and 14 friendly fixtures per year as well as some vets’ matches and everyone is given the opportunity to play at home and away, whatever your ability.  We enter teams, at every level, in the Haskell, Weston, Stearn and Cranworth County knockout competitions and have won trophies in most events. We are proud of our County and National players but, equally, we aim to encourage ladies of all abilities and to make our golf an enjoyable and worthwhile activity.

On the social scene, the ladies are involved in numerous Club activities.  We hold an annual coffee morning and a community tea for some of the Felixstowe residents. We also have our own social functions and meet for formal and informal meals. 

We enjoy our golf and the competitive element but we also enjoy the numerous social activities that come with being a member of a large, friendly group. 

The Ladies Committee, chaired by the Ladies Captain, holds monthly meetings and you will find that any Committee member, or any lady will be pleased to tell you about Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club and the Ladies section. The Ladies Captain and Vice Captain also attend the General Committee meetings and are there to represent your views. We also attend other committee meetings such as handicap, course and social and are involved in other Club decisions. 

If you are thinking of learning to play golf or are looking to join our section then we look forward to seeing you. Do come and join us for a coffee or for lunch on Thursdays. You will soon get to know everyone and will be made most welcome.
