Welcome to the Ladies' Section at Avington Park Golf Course.
We are a small, but lively section of enthusiastic golfers who take their golf seriously, but have lots of fun along the way! My name is Brenda Yarrien and I am the Lady Captain for 2017-2018. I am supported by a wonderful committee that includes two Vice-Captains, Jenny and Lin.
I am married to Paul, who also plays at the club, we live in King’s Somborne, near Stockbridge. I retired from teaching two years ago and started to play golf on a regular basis. Avington has been a wonderful club for me, as a newcomer, to develop my golf. The friendly and supportive atmosphere allows players of all abilities to enjoy this wonderful game, in a beautiful park setting. You are often accompanied by the sounds and sights of the country, that include the resident sheep, the inquisitive squirrels and the occasional Egyptian Goose!
The Ladies’ Section meet every Tuesday and play competitions across a range of formats. For those who are more competitively driven, a series of matches are played against clubs within the area. An additional attraction is to attend the series of “coffee mornings”, where we visit different clubs and experience playing a variety of courses and enjoy local hospitality. This is a great way of meeting fellow golfers and testing your skills on different courses.
Avington is the perfect place to start or continue your golfing journey. We look forward to welcoming you every Tuesday morning, from 8.30am, when the Ladies have their roll up. There is no need to sign up in advance, just make yourself known on arrival and enjoy a morning’s golf.
I look forward to meeting you.
