Ladies at Handsworth are an integral part of the club although few in number they are a progressive, enthusiastic and growing section. Whether you are a low handicapper, a beginner, junior or senior you are assured a warm welcome at Handsworth.
As a forward thinking golf club Handsworth recognises how important the working lady golfer is to a club and holds several of the ladies major trophy competitions on a Sunday and ladies are welcome to play in the men’s non trophy competitions on a Saturday.
Playing with reserved ladies times on the first tee regular competitions and social golf form the backbone of the section and there is always a team to play in. The lower handicappers will be attracted by our scratch team whilst the mid to high handicappers will be welcome in our friendly teams.
But not all golf is serious! there are several away days, invitation days and open competitions where everyone can join in and enjoy the game plus lots of opportunity just to have a relaxed social round followed by a nourishing treat from the bar!
Mixed golf plays an important part in the overall sociability of the golf offering at Handsworth and the ladies section are very much the drivers of this activity. The club run a successful calendar of mixed matches as well as hosting several mixed opens throughout the year.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a partner we’ll find you one!!
If you are new to golf then our professional Lee Bashford runs ladies only group lessons as well as individual private lessons and they’ll always be an encouraging word of support from the ladies that remember when they decided to try this weird but wonderful game for the first time.
Ladies coaching is with our PGA Professional Lee Bashford.

Handsworth is a golfer’s golf club steeped in tradition but with a very inclusive attitude to new members. The competition calendar is extensive and meets all needs with regular competitions both at weekends and during the week. The weekend competitions are entered by starting sheet regularly having in excess of 150 members taking part but many of the midweek ones are “turn up and play”.
The club boasts many successes not least in team competitions. For elite golfers our scratch team play in Midlands Division 1 and are the current holders of The Warwickshire Cup. For the 4- 15 handicappers there is the West Midlands League Team where pairs comprise a “low man off less than 10 but more than 4” and “high man of more than 10 but less than 15” played in zones to start Handsworth regularly make it through to the knockout stages and are past winners of the Davenport Salver the leagues cup competition.
There are then the “A” and “B” teams who cater for the competitive/social golfer both teams have strong fixture lists against other local clubs and competition for places is stiff.
In addition to team and competition golf Handsworth has several social golf groups who always welcome members to join them if you’re stuck for a game.
We have a number of members who play representative golf for the county and one of our members is the current “Champion of Champions”
Like all golf clubs we have a very active Seniors Section and more details on Senior Golf at Handsworth can be found on the Senior’s page.
“I’ve felt more welcome in my first week at Handsworth than I did in 10 years at my previous club” is a comment over heard on our balcony and is a fitting way to summarise Handsworth Golf Club.
The club has several categories of membership and if you can’t see one that suits you contact the office to discuss your golfing needs.
As with most golf clubs Handsworth Seniors Section is very active and an important part of the club.

Juniors at Handsworth are an important part of the club future and although a small section at the moment we have plans to encourage its development over the next few years.
Although small we have a had a number of successes with members playing for the Staffordshire Age Group sides and one of our junior girls recently won the Staffordshire Girls (Nett) Championship and one of our former junior members has recently turned professional.
Our plans include recognition under the new England Golf “Golfmark” scheme. This will include scheduled golf tuition, full use of the club’s practise facilities and will require our scholars to commit to improving the standard of their golf, playing for the clubs junior team and other club teams as required, we currently have one junior playing in our senior scratch team and one playing in our West Midlands League team, but we would expect our scholarship programme to accelerate this involvement.
