Clyne Golf Club has a very active Ladies Section with over 60 lady members, many of whom play on a regular basis.
Working ladies are integral to our section and we ensure they play a full part by setting up alternate day competitions for them at weekends with reserved tee times. The results of these competitions are amalgamated with our weekday comps to determine the overall positions. Our league teams also play home matches on a Saturday afternoon to enable working ladies to participate as fully as possible.
In 2010, the members voted for ‘equality’ so men and ladies now have the same rights of access to the course as well as election to the Management Committee. In 2012, Mrs Gaynor Fryer was elected as the first lady to captain the Club.
The Ladies Captain for 2018/19 is Mrs Lynda Lewis (pictured right).
Clyne can boast lady members holding prestigious positions at county and national levels. Indeed, the first Golf Union Wales president was a Lady member at Clyne. Over the years, many Clyne Ladies have taken up regional and national golf related posts including President of the Welsh Golfing Union (the precursor to the current GUW), President of Golf Union Wales, Director of Golf Union Wales, Chair of the Clubs Services Committee, Glamorgan County Captain, Glamorgan County President and County Selector. On the playing side, Clyne has also been represented on the County Ladies 1st and 2nd Teams with a couple of our lady members currently in both these Glamorgan County Squads. Clyne has also had representatives in the Girls’ Junior Welsh Squad.
Our weekly competitions are held on Tuesdays where the Ladies Committee organises a mix of competitive and social golf. We run many qualifying competitions each season where ladies compete for trophies. These are interspersed with some fun non-qualifying competitions as well as 9-hole handicap maintenance competitions. Clyne currently fields 3 teams in the Glamorgan & Monmouthshire Ladies County League as well as annually fielding a team for the Ladies Welsh Team Championships. For those who prefer non-competitive golf, Clyne also arranges a series of friendly matches against other local clubs on a home and away basis; these matches are open to ladies not playing in the league teams.
