Welcome to the Ladies Section of Billingham Golf Club. I'm Helen Fawcett, a member of the club since 2017. At BGC we have a lively and very sociable group of lady golfers of all ages, who put the emphasis on having fun and enjoying the exercise golf provides, rather than the more competitive side of things!
We have the R&A Women in Golf Charter which calls on members of the club to play their part in developing a culture that values women's involvement in every aspect of the sport, from participating to pursuing a career. I am the Charter Champion and am working closely with fellow club members to ensure we achieve the main aims of the Charter, which are listed here:-
* to increase the number of women and girls playing and working in golf
* to pursue a fundamental change in culture, providing economic benefits of growing the sport through more women and girls playing
* to making tangible efforts to develop a welcoming and inspiring environment for women by doing more to attract women into golf.
If you are new to golf and would like to take part in a taster session please contact Helen Fawcett via Julie Lapping the club secretary on 01642 533816. Beginner ladies lessons are also available upon request.
