About

Our Ladies Division is an active group and we invite you to join our regular games, our tournaments, our button matches and our competitions with clubs on Vancouver Island. We have players of all ages and all abilities and many special events for seniors. Our year begins in April with an opening day 9 hole round of golf and lunch, followed by a General Meeting. Similarly, we conclude with a business meeting in mid-October after a 9-hole game and lunch for all members.

You are welcome to join any or all of the divisions. Each one has its own $30 annual membership fee, which pays for trophies, awards and prizes. New members may play up to 3 times in any group before joining, and submitting the fee.

A Mentor Program has been developed to support new lady members and ensure they are familiar with all of the Ladies Divisions and Club activities.
