LANCS CLUBS BUCKING THE TREND

THE drive to encourage more women into golf is paying dividends in Lancashire. A major campaign has resulted in an increase in female membership numbers in its first 12 months with latest returns from county clubs showing a 1.5% lift. One club, Blackley, added ten ladies in 12 months.

The Manchester club has a new Ladies into Golf programme, developing a four-step pathway. This included taster sessions to attract newcomers and coaching for beginners. The club has supported the new players with a group of ‘golfing buddies’ to help get them out on the course. “There has been a real buzz around the club with positive comments,” said Debbie Barber, a former county golf development officer. “However it would not have been possible without the club’s band of ‘golfing buddies’, who turned up to every lesson and practice session over the beginners’ 16-week programme to support the club’s new friends and get them out onto the course.”
