Women and golf have always been associated with Glencorse, with the first recorded friendly match in 1903 against Portobello. But more than 30 years after the inception of the Club an official ladies section was formed. Following a meeting on Saturday 4th November 1922 all attendees of a meeting reached a unanimous decision.
We intend to celebrate 100 years of the ladies section from November 2022 through to the playing season in 2023, when it will mark the 100 years of the official playing season.
This page outlines the keys dates that we have organised for the centenary along with ways in which all Glencorse members can get involved.
The Ladies Section and our sponsor Harrisons Ford Centre and Dalkeith Ford Centre are pleased to announce that we will kick off our centenary events on the 5th November with a dinner in the Clubhouse.
Tickets will go on sale in September for £35pp - which will include a 3 course dinner, welcome drink and a speaker. We will also be raising money at the dinner for our 2022 charity - Brain Tumour Research.
This event will be open to all members.
Please keep an eye out for communications on how to book your ticket for this event. Tickets will be limited to 80.
The Ladies Committee have set up this Web page to highlight all of the events that we have planned. We will continue to add any updates to this page and to share any pictures from our centenary year celebrations.
