Welcome to AEGC Ladies section
On behalf of myself and the ladies committee it is my pleasure to welcome you to Alderley Edge Golf Club. This pretty 9 hole course, with its hills, trees and brooks is interesting and challenging to play. It is my honour to be Lady Captain this year. I am very fortunate to have the support of Julie Ricketts, the Lady President and Jo Pratt the Lady Vice Captain, who along with the Ladies committee, work hard to ensure the competitions, matches and social gatherings take place and run smoothly. Without all the behind the scenes planning the events would not take place, and after two years of covid restrictions we are looking forward to a full calendar of golf and social events.
Ladies club competition day is Tuesday, with singles and team games offered throughout the year. We have a programme of 18 hole and 9 hole qualifying competitions between Early April and late October, with weekly 9 hole competitions during the winter months. In addition, we have a 9 hole roll up at 10 am on Thursdays and 1pm on Sundays.
We have two new major competitions this year- the Platinum trophy and the Fulshaw Links prize. We will hold our Ladies Club championship, with a prize for the best gross score and best nett score over 2 x 18 holes rounds. Once again, we will enter teams into the Inter club ECICS competitions, and take part in the 9 hole league and friendly fixtures. It is the aim of the AEGC ladies to provide good, competitive golf, both for low handicap and high handicap golfers.
Our fundraising this year is on behalf of Diabetes UK- a charity close to the hearts of many club members who have witnessed the effect diabetes can have on individuals and their families. To donate please follow the link www.justgiving.com/page/lady-captains-charity-aegc-2022-23
Wishing all our visitors and members an enjoyable year of golf and I look forward to seeing you on the course and in the clubhouse
