The Folke Ladies Section are delighted to announce that they are officially affiliated to the English Women’s Golf Union (EWGU). The section is now known as the Folke Ladies Golf Club, and, with Folke Golf Centre nominated as the Home Course, a County Delegate has been appointed (Pauline Hague), regulations have been defined along the lines of the Yeovil Ladies, and the course has been USGA rated. Dorset Ladies County Golf Association have expressed their support and excitement about the ladies plans at Folke.
The lady members at Folke are now being encouraged to become affiliates although this is not essential in order to participate in the usual events. To become affiliated, a small subscription is required to cover the County, National, and Insurance fees and three 18 hole rounds must be completed to obtain an official handicap.This would enable them to do any or all of the following:
· Play other courses where an official handicap is required
· Purchase a county card to access discounted green fees at such courses
· Form, with friends, a golf society in order to avail of ‘golf packages’ at other courses
· Enter open competitions at other clubs e.g. Bowmaker team events, which can mean playing at top quality courses for as little as 1/3 of the usual green fee
· Compete on equal terms in friendly competition days at Folke and elsewhere.
