How to Join – Female
Becoming a Member of a Golf Club is a big decision which is influenced by a number of factors. The number 1 priority is of course the Golf Course itself. MLGC is a Par 74 for the Women and the gentle undulations of the course ensure an easy walk, while offering challenges to meet the needs of both beginners and experienced Golfers.
The social aspect of being a Member of a Club community is also important. At MLGC we understand how important it is for new Members to immediately feel a sense of belonging. To this end the Women’s Committee run a Mentoring Program. As part of this program, a Member will play Golf with you and introduce you to other Members.
The Female Members of the Club comprise a group of over 200 Women in all categories.
We have a number of categories of Membership which facilitate Women have differing playing rights to suit their lifestyle. The main mid-week golfing days are a Tuesday and Thursday morning. We have a 9 and 18 hole competition on both days.
Thursday is our main competition day and we have special events and presentations on this day. The highlight of the year is the Toyota Gala Day which is a day not to be missed on the golfing calendar there is much fun and laughter!! The day includes golf which is Step Aside Ambrose, a fabulous lunch and then entertainment. In the past we have had Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones and Rod Stewart tributes – these entertainers have had the Ladies up dancing the day away.
We also have a number of Women’s who, although they have mid-week playing rights, choose to play on the week-end (Saturday and Sunday). The majority of these Ladies are working and weekend play suits their lifestyle.
