TESTIMONIALS

I joined WGC in 2013 with my husband, after being a member at a Golf Club attached to a municipal course for a number of years. The main thing that attracted me to joining WGC was, the opportunity to play competitive golf both in club competitions and representing WGC versus other clubs. I work full time, and joined originally as a 6 day member, but, the fact that as a Lady member I now have complete equality with our other members, this has enabled me to switch to a 7 day membership. This gives me the added bonus to play any day of the week and the big benefit to me is weekend competition golf. We have an amazing Ladies section and since joining I was welcomed with open arms as a new member. Working full time there is always someone willing to partner you in competitions (whether it’s early mornings or evenings). Tuesday, if your plans change at short notice, there’s always someone there to help out. Our presentation evenings are always great fun and well attended (the envy of the men’s section), and I have made a lot of valued friends over the last 7 years. Outside of the Ladies section, we have some fabulous club social events that are great fun. We have had some brilliant evenings with varied entertainment that we have enjoyed, with the new friends that we have made. Not to forget our fabulous catering team Phil and Michelle they have proved a life saver for me, some evenings after a long day travelling with work. Popping into WGC means not having to cook, and who wouldn’t want the chance to sample Phil’s legendary cheesecake !!!!    7 DAY MEMBER (LADY)

I have been a member of Wigan Golf Club for 35 years and was Lady Captain in 2002 when Wigan became 18 holes - thank goodness!

WGC has a ‘Special’ Ladies section, and anyone that joins the club soon realises the heart that beats within it.  Seniors, members and new members alike build friendships, and have enjoyed lots of golf and fun days and nights over the years, it really has been excellent. I truly hope that new lady members have felt very welcomed and enjoyed the camaraderie of the Ladies section. Golf has had to change over the years, to cater for the diverse requirement of lifestyles.  With regards to the recruitment of most younger ladies, who work, it is fantastic that ladies can now play in competitions on Saturdays.  We need these ladies to take over the mantle.

Men and Ladies need to be able to play together or separately to keep the enjoyment of golf going and Wigan has taken this on board and encompassed equality within golf. Wigan Golf Club, whilst still maintaining its traditional values, has made great strides into the modern era. 6 DAY MEMBER (LADY)

I had never played golf before! I came through the ranks of the Arley Academy coached by Tony Byrom, and met lots of like-minded new friends.  My first occasion on the course was in Winter of 2018, and if ever I was going to give up golf, it was then, but the comradery of fellow Stepping Stone Members and the WGC members spurred me on. I recognised quite quickly that being protected inside the Academy walls with Tony correcting my grip, stance, and many other habits, was totally different from standing on the 1st Tee . Everyone was patient and totally supportive.  I had no problem in finding a ‘friend’ to venture out onto the course with me.  We became ‘all weather’ Buddies.

I continued with my coaching during my Stepping Stone Membership and in no time at all the 10 sessions on the course had gone………… I was hooked, without any hesitation I joined as a 3 day member, and now have a handicap and play golf regularly with members’  I can’t get enough golf, and along with enjoying the social aspect, and the welcome I have received from everyone, there is no better Golf Club than Wigan Golf Club. From beginners to professionals everyone is welcomed at the same level. Since joining as a 3 day member, I have been to Portugal with the ladies that I met through coaching and played on numerous quality courses, and look forward to many more enjoyable trips. Golf at Wigan Golf Club has opened up a whole new world! STEPPING STONE MEMBER – PROGRESSING TO 3 DAY MEMBER (LADY)
