Ladies in Golf

A Blog Post By: Jon Conklin, PGA Head Professional & Director of Operations

It is no secret that the PGA, NGCOA, and GCSAA are all on the same page with growing this great game of golf.  It is also no secret that we all believe the key to this is to grow our female numbers. Think about it for a minute.  It’s Saturday morning, and you want to hit the links with your friends. Who helps to make this decision whether or not you can go?  Let’s be honest here, your wife or girlfriend does! 

In this day and age, Women have a larger role in the decision making process at home. No more going to the good ole’ guys' club and spending the weekend there, only to go home to eat dinner and sleep.  Private clubs have seen this trend happening for better than a decade, and because of it, have created different amenities to make it a family-affair for ladies and children

Bucks Run has seen this trend, as well. Therefore, we are offering a few different options to increase ladies' play, while also introducing them to the game. For those who are newer to the game or prefer a more relaxed environment, we offer a 9 hole scramble league every other Thursday. This is a non-competitive, fun league (no scorecards are turned in) and it gives many mothers the chance for a night out with the girls, in a low-stress environment.  To coincide with this, on the Thursdays the league does not play, we offer a 45 minute instructional clinic with 3 holes to play after with your instructor(s).

As for the ladies who prefer a more competitive round of golf, we offer a competitive league, every Tuesday, that is more structured, with a points system. I have actually seen many of our Thursday night ladies transition to this Tuesday Night League once they feel more comfortable in the golf course setting. In addition to this, we also offer a special rate on every Tuesday (in season) to all ladies for $33 off their round of golf.  

We look forward to seeing more ladies on the course and getting involved with the great game of golf. As always, have a great week.
