Thoughts From Our Ladies 

Emily - Junior Captain

“Being a member of Bishopswood feels like being part of a huge family – everyone is always so friendly and welcoming. There’s always a sense of friendly competition.” 

Jeannette - Lady Member

For my part learning to play golf years ago opened another world for me. I learnt a game which fulfilled my competitive spirit. Golf provides all women, whatever level, access to enjoy the game of golf. One mixes with people you may never have met otherwise. Golf is a great leveller. Playing at other clubs and making new friends is a bonus

Gill - Lady Member

I enjoy playing golf as it gets me outside and walking plus something to focus on for enjoyment and possibly improvement. I particularly enjoy belonging to Bishopswood not only for golf , but the friendship and support there is within the club . Under normal times there is always someone to have a passing chat with or a coffee in our lovely clubhouse

Mabel - Lady Member

Personally, getting out to golf lifts my mood, therefore good for my mental health. It also helps with my fitness. Playing golf you meet and play with other ladies. Bishopswood ladies are a very friendly and sociable group and through golf I now have many good friends.

Carole - Lady Member

I like playing golf because it is an outdoor sport that can be played all year round. It is challenging but fun and the ladies are very sociable and inclusive. Bishopswood is a very friendly club. There are many competitions and fun events scheduled throughout the year which provides the opportunity to meet other members, both men and women. The ladies weekly roll up is very well attended and each week offers different playing partners, another way to meet members. The course is very pretty whatever the season and is well maintained.
