Stratford Oaks enjoys a reputation for being a friendly club and this is especially true of the Ladies’ Section which has a thriving membership of well over a hundred ladies. We aim to give new members a warm welcome whether they are experienced players or new to the game and we are able to integrate them into the Section in a number of ways. Competitions are drawn weekly with a view to varying playing partners, a mentoring system is in place for anyone wishing to learn the ropes and there is a long list of ladies who are willing to be called on for a game.
Wednesday is the Main Day for our competitions when there is either an 18 hole Medal or Stableford competition and also a weekly 9 hole Stableford. For those who are unable to play in the week, we hold an Alternative Competition Day on either a Saturday or Sunday. Ladies who are gaining their Handicap Index are encouraged to play immediately after the Main Day competitions so they can quickly get to know others, socially, in the Clubhouse.
Stratford Oaks has recently been awarded the prestigious Women in Golf Charter, a status conferred by the R&A through England Golf which sets out to distinguish us as a club which holds paramount the interests, ambitions and conditions for women in the world of golf.
There is much more besides, brought about by an active and knowledgeable Committee committed to providing a full programme of inclusive golfing events.
