Launched in 2015 to introduce new Lady players to the game, Blainroe Ladies Golf Academy has proven to be an outstanding success with 30 regular playing each week.
This Ladies Academy affords beginners and improvers an opportunity to play regular golf within an organised timeslot over 9 holes every week (approx. 48 weeks) during the year. It is the second step in perhaps becoming a regular player and for some participants, in time, to becoming members.
To become a member of the Academy you first MUST have participated in the Ladies Beginner 10 week programme.
The Academy is self-administering for both Competitions and Handicaps, and is run by a small committee under guidance from the Club.
- Each player is entitled to play in the Academy tee-times, being a weekday or weekend 9-Hole round.
- Play will take place on Thursday mornings from 09.00 -10.00am except in mid-summer July and August
- In July and August these slots will take place on Friday mornings at the same time
