Shona Paton
Ladies Captain and
Junior's Convenor

Welcome to Gifford Ladies.
We pride ourselves on being a lively and sociable group, with a shared passion for golf! Whether you prefer the competition element of golf, or just appreciate golfing in beautiful scenery and good company, we have something for everyone.
Medals are played on Tuesdays, with the option of playing 9 or 18 holes During the summer months, we run competitions for both handicap and non-handicap players alike with at least one fun competition per month, eg “strings and supper”. Annually we have the Mystery Day Outing and the Weekend Away. These are hugely popular, with places hotly contested.
We also maintain strong links with other clubs and have regular inter club matches, at home and away. Through the winter months, the ladies meet fortnightly to play 9 holes in the Winter League.
There truly is something for everyone.
