Oakdale Golf Club has a very active and well-established Ladies Section which aims to provide enjoyable golf that caters for all abilities and age groups in a relaxed, friendly and welcoming environment. Currently we have over 100 playing lady members and there are strategies in place so that players can develop their golf skills, whether it's as a beginner or an improver.  Our PGA Professional, Clive Dell, is always on hand to give individual or group lessons.

Ladies competition days are Tuesdays and Sundays and we play in a range of handicap qualifying and non-qualifying competitions over 18 or 9 holes. Oakdale Ladies run Scratch, A and B Teams in the Yorkshire Inter-Club Championships. Our B Team enjoyed recent success by winning the YLCGA Team Trophy in September 2016. We also compete in the Harrogate and District Union of Golf Clubs Winter League (which Oakdale won in 2016) and Summer Divisional Championships. Annual exchange days and friendly matches are also arranged to ensure that competitive and social golf is available for all levels of golfer. The club also runs mixed competitions which are always very enjoyable.

Oakdale Golf Club has a vibrant social life with events organised on a regular basis as well as Winter monthly fixtures such as Quiz Nights, Bridge Afternoons and Dominoes Evenings.

I am delighted to be Lady Captain for 2017 and my chosen charity is Parkinson's .UK-Harrogate Branch. All funds raised are spent locally to provide transport and respite care.

On behalf of my Vice-Captain, Shirley Needham, and all my Committee, I look forward to welcoming you to Oakdale as a new member, visitor or friend.
