With over 40 golfing ladies on its membership list, Barbados Golf Club is becoming known on the island as the main promoter and supporter of Ladies Golf. This number is growing each month through the “Bunker Babes initiative” which was started by Jacqui McDermott (New Golfer) and Harriet Linton (Expert Golfer) in 2012 as a programme to introduce new golfers to the game in a comfortable, non pressured environment whilst they learnt the etiquette of the course and practice their swing but it’s also popular for experienced golfers who just want to ‘play for fun’ and meet new people. The Sunday morning 8:00 am sessions attracts both locals and visitors alike and you can choose whether to play in a medal or scramble format.
So here is an open invitation to those ladies who are just starting out, and to seasoned players who like to play for fun. Why not join the “Bunker Babes” who are honing their skills under the watchful eyes of Harriet and Simone every Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome and there are discounted rates so no matter your level of play, contact the pro shop at 428-8463 where the staff will put you in touch!
The ladies have already had a very successful inaugural New Year Ladies Tournament and there are many more fun tournaments planned. Keep in touch with this website and the Facebook page of Barbados Golf Club to make sure you are up to date.
