SINCE 2015, the Ladies Section at Vivary Golf Club has re-established itself and gone from strength to strength with membership increasing, allowing the team to play friendly matches both home and away.

The ladies meet on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9.15am for competitions and fun games – all standards are welcome. 

Those ladies thinking of taking up golf for the first time may wish to take part in ladies-only group lessons that are available on Wednesday mornings at the club. 

The club would be more than happy to invite those wishing to play in the monthly fun game and try out the course along as guests.
