MG lady editor Mandy Ambert’s MGALS (Midlands Golfer Amateur Ladies Society) are growing into the biggest society on our books. Very soon they will be the largest ladies golf society, not only in The Midlands but probably in the UK too. Mandy has teamed up with many ladies academies to grow the group, lately with the LALA’s of Little Aston and the ladies section at Marriott Forest of Arden. Two more events are being organised for 2018, the autumn MGALS date will be announced soon. For now, ALL lady golfers in The Midlands are invited to the summer occasion.

Next MGALS event – Sunday July 8th – Marriott Forest of Arden (Aylesford) – £27.50 includes 18 holes, food before and after and prize table. Please email Mandy – ladyeditor@midlandsgolfer.co.uk  if you are interested in coming along.

A reminder of how it all got started

MGals 1st event at South Staffs Golf Club – October 27th 2017

MGALS Society debut

Midlands golfer amateur ladies society held its debut event at the end of October and with arriving to a band of fog was met by the Senior Captain trying to organise their delayed Seniors Championship.

Whilst the ladies tucked into Danish Pastries and coffee, the director of golf our own Peter Baker had a predicament as some of the men had already started their rounds of golf.

For us there was no problem, we simply started our competition on the 10th and all went smoothly. In fact once the fog had lifted the course was bathed in sunshine and  looked magnificent. Our 7 4 balls from Staffordshire, Warwickshire and West Midlands did battle and having enjoyed a meal of sandwiches and chips were then furnished with prizes supplied by Surprizegolf.com

We have been inundated with clubs wanting to host the MGALS and having visited Coxmoor Ladies in Nottinghamshire can foresee that our numbers will swell.

Another level – Leamington & County

Leamington and County GC has the experience of over 100 years of golfing tradition combined with a healthy modern attitude to bringing new golfers into the game.

Leamington have undertaken some course developments this year too, a slightly altered layout now exists with a re-route and two changed holes which include a new 18th. A joint editor’s visit was required to check it all out, Mandy and myself chose the hottest day of the year to do it!

Nuneaton GC – 2018 style

The fortunes of Nuneaton Golf Club are doing rather nicely of late, a rate of progress to compare favourably with their famous son. Locally born Andy Sullivan played his golf here from picking up a club at the age of ten. He still lives in the area and during his downtime away from the European Tour is often to be found on the fairways of Nuneaton, still playing money games with old mates.
