Harwood Golf Club has an active ladies' section which is made up of experienced golfers as well as those new to the game. We are a friendly bunch of individuals who all enjoy what golf has to offer.
Exercise - Fresh air - Beautiful Scenery - Challenges - Friendships - Fun
We play both competitive golf and social golf. Our competitive golf is played at club level on Wednesdays. At the beginning and end of the season, when daylight hours are more restricted, this is extended to include an alternate day on Saturdays to allow working ladies to enter weekly competitions. Externally we belong to the Bolton Golf Association, and the Lancashire, East Lancashire and Manchester and District Golf Associations. There are therefore many opportunities to play at courses throughout Lancashire. Social golf is organised through regular roll ups. We meet for lunch on Wednesdays throughout the year, after golf or instead of golf if the weather is inclement. This would be an ideal time to call in to find out more about joining us at Harwood. You are assured a warm welcome.
We have a supportive network of ladies who are keen to introduce the wonderful game of golf to newcomers. We have in recent years developed a pathway into golf through taster days and group coaching sessions and these have been extremely successful.
In addition to golf, we have a healthy social calendar and impressive clubhouse facilities. Recent golfing and social activities are reported below.

All was not lost when the dreadful weather closed the golf course last Wednesday and therefore the much-anticipated Ryder Cup event organised by Lady Captain and Lady Captain Elect had to be cancelled. After some last minute re-organising the event turned into an indoor games contest with fierce competitiveness and banter. Quoits, carpet bowls, Jenga,… Read more »
