Avington Park Golf Course

Ladies' Section

Welcome to the Ladies Section of Avington Park Golf Course.

My name is Jenn Brailey and I am the Lady Captain for 2023-24, supported by a knowledgeable committee and my vice-captain, Carmela Di Landro.

I was a commuter for many years, working in London for Customs and Excise and then HMRC.  Spending 12 hours a day travelling and working left me little time for outdoor pursuits.  When I retired my friend Daphne Bolas, already a member at Avington, suggested I came along to see if I enjoyed it.  Of course I did and I was hooked (so are a lot of my shots, but that’s another story!).

From the outset, the lady members could not have been more friendly and welcoming, with many words of encouragement, despite one lady member informing me that air shots were unforgiveable.  15 years on I still think of her with affection when I miss the ball – luckily not a common occurrence these days!

The club itself is beautiful, the perfect environment to play, with plenty of wildlife - red kites, woodpeckers, squirrels and the odd hare and stoat leaping around the course.

Although relatively small, Avington provides an excellent test for golfing skills.  The Ladies section meets every Tuesday morning and plays competitions across a range of formats. These are fun and friendly but tough enough to test the range of skills the ladies have. The age range of our ladies is from 40s to 80s and is no barrier to enjoying our sport. Some of our more senior ladies play on a buggy or stick to 9 holes and this is welcomed and accommodated.

For those who are more competitive, there are in-house competitions and a series of matches played both at home and away against other clubs. We also send out details of coffee mornings held by other local clubs and encourage our lady members to join in to meet fellow golfers and enjoy other courses at a reasonable cost.

Much of the administration is now done on-line and there is a useful, user-friendly website which details the club’s many activities -

We actively welcome and encourage new lady members who have joined or are thinking of joining. They will be contacted by me, Carmela or a Committee member and any queries dealt with. Our aim is to make golf accessible and enjoyable for all, whatever your skills and experience.

Avington is the perfect place to start or continue your golfing journey and we look forward to meeting you. Initially please contact the clubhouse on 01962 779945 and then your details will be passed to one of us and we will ensure you are welcomed to the fold!
