Ladies Section

The Glencorse Ladies’ Section is fairly small but vibrant and friendly and has a good mix of fun and competitive play.

There are lots of competitions throughout the year, and as the above photograph from the 2017/2018 Prize Giving shows, there are many opportunities to feature.

We compete in Division 1 of the Midlothian County Ladies Golf Association Five a Side, Division 2 of the Midlothian Greensomes’ league, the Midlothian Inter Club competition and the Morison Millar tournament. We also have five friendly matches with other clubs. We hold our Ladies Open in August each year.

We have an annual golf outing one day in June and, around Easter time, some of us go to Foxton Hall in Northumberland for a couple of nights and play 3 golf courses.

If you are interested in joining our friendly Club then a warm welcome awaits you – please contact our Secretary who will be delighted to provide further information.

Get Into Golf

This year there was a great opportunity for ladies to try golf at Glencorse for very little expense. This popular programme is called Get into Golf and is supported by Scottish Golf.

In addition to the golf lessons in groups from our club professional, there will be ongoing support from the ladies’ section. We can all remember what it was like when we first took up the game!

The programme was launched at Glencorse on Monday April 16th. Over 40 participated, with over 1/3 deciding to become Full Members!
