There is a real consensus amongst the members, that Kenwick Park continue an already established drive towards attracting and welcoming new women and girls to Membership and for new players to the game of golf.
As a member of Kenwick Park, Women have a wide range of opportunities to play golf socially and competitively. The main Women's Competition day is Tuesday and entries are taken all day. You can choose to play in the draw which commences at 10.00am or at a time that suits you, with your friends. There are also numerous opportunities to play competitively at the Weekend throughout the year.
On Thursday mornings the Senior Ladies roll up to tee off at 9.30 am.
Our Women's section have played a huge part in shaping the club since it opened in 1992.
In 2018 history was made by the Kenwick Park Ladies as they became one of the first golf clubs in the UK in voting to change their name to Kenwick Park Women.
By adopting a modern attitude to language and equality, they proved their willingness to continue to promote a more inclusive and forward thinking approach, to current and prospective members.
To further promote this the Golf Club are signatories of the England Golf 'Women in Golf Charter'. To read more about this follow the link below....
Our Women's section shot to promenance in 1995 when they won the National Mail on Sunday competition at Champ de Bataille in France.
Our Womens and Girls sections have helped to develop Elite Golfers too, as Sophie Walker and Holly Clyburn who were both Junior Girls golfers at Kenwick have enjoyed many years on the Ladies LET circuit.
