A thriving section that is proud of its reputation for friendliness. Our buddying system for all new members, whether a complete beginner or an experienced golfer, means that you are guaranteed a partner to help you get to know everyone. If you are new to golf, you will be helped every step of the way to learn the ropes and get your initial handicap. Whether your interest is mainly competitive golf or social golf or a balance of both or whether you have only time for 9 holes rather than 18, Charnwood can certainly meet your aspirations. Women play a full role in the club, participating in the social and management aspects as well as playing. There are ample opportunities to play in mixed events, competitions, friendly and league matches and also fun competitions. We are certain that whatever you are looking for in a golf club you will find it here.
Men’s golf at Charnwood is a truly great experience for all levels of golfer, and our members are a friendly and welcoming bunch. In the season we have a comprehensive programme of individual and team competitions in which all members are encouraged to play. Outside of Club competitions we field 3 teams to play against other clubs. Our low handicap golfers successfully compete in a scratch team league, our second and third teams compete in a programme of friendly matches against other golf clubs across the county. There is plenty of opportunity to play social golf, outside of diaried events there is no need to book a tee time, just turn up and play with friends or join in with other members who are looking for a game. We appreciate how difficult it can be for new members to get involved in a new club so we operate a buddy system to help you meet others and sort out the best times to play. We hold regular weekly club night 9 hole events which are a great way to mix in with members old and new.
Whether you have a partner who plays golf or not, you will be most welcome to play in our mixed competitions that are both fun and very competitive! We play throughout the winter leading to a winter mixed final in March. During the summer season there is a mixed knock out and regular friendly matches against other clubs in the county, these are a great opportunity to play other courses and make new golfing friends. Non golfing partners are always welcome to join us for the usual after match meal - In 2016 we were mixed county foursomes champions!
The seniors are a group of men who are proof that not only is there a golfing life after 55 but it is possible to play 3 times a week, enjoy every shot, represent the club and still be highly competitive, or not!. With a roll up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and competitions each month, the seniors are some of our most active golfers. They play rain or shine all year round and are happy to accept honorary seniors [under 55s] as long as they buy the tea when they lose! The seniors play matches against other local clubs. These are played in a morning and followed by a meal. There is always plenty of opportunity for all seniors to join in and get a game.
Juniors are very welcome at Charnwood from an early age, our youngest member is just 7. Membership is inexpensive and we cater for young players from beginner through to regular players with a handicap, at a pace that suits each youngster. High quality coaching at the club and at the Charnwood golf range provides players with the opportunity to learn the skills of golf and also to get onto the golf course and experience what it is like to play the game. Coaching and competitions happen on a Sunday afternoon at fortnightly intervals throughout the season. Parents and other family members are welcome to use our club house whilst their children are being coached or playing.
