Women’s Golf

If you would like to play golf Medway has some options for you whether you are experienced or have never played.

Please read below.

LEVEL 1 – I have never played golf or are getting back into it after a long time away from the game.

This is for you. Medway & Maribyrnong Council ” Get into Golf/ Come and Try Days”

Register interest in the next beginner classes email info@medwaygolf.com.au or see the Maribyrnong Council Spring and Autumn classes on the council website and register interest in the Medway Golf Club programs.

In addition to these Come & Try Clinics co-ordinated by Maribyrnong Council, Medway PGA Qualified Coaches run beginner classes for 5 weeks typically to learn the basics of the game. 

After completing the coaching programs, our Coaches and mentors will move you up to LEVEL 2.


LEVEL 2 I have played a bit, done some group classes in the past and are ready to try to play on the course with women of similar ability as mine.

This is for you – Wednesday Play 5 for 5

Every Wednesday at 10am – we run weekly a new social golf experience for women starting out in the game.  Golfers will be assisted by Medway members and on occasions golfshop staff.

Generally takes between 1- 1 1/2 hour to play 5 holes plus time for a coffee afterwards.

Equipment will be supplied if requested at no charge for a period of time.

Simply come along- no bookings required. Neat Casual Dress code.

    

 

Typical time spent in this program 3- 12 months. You will know when your ready for Level 3 or a mentor/ golf staff will guide you along to Level 3.


LEVEL 3 – I have played for some time and are now looking at possible some competition golf or at least to trial a club membership to see if I like it.

This is for you – Women’s Trial Membership

Course access is Off peak or besides Thursday, Saturday and before 12pm Sundays you have access to play. Bookings encouraged.

You may play in the 5 for $5 but don’t need to pay the $5.

You can gain a golflink handicap and compete in the club competitions if you wish including Tuesday mornings and Friday mornings. 

Typical time spent in this category- 12 months

Medway By- Laws 12.3 Women’s Trial Membership – Non Voting Category

The rights and privileges of a Women’s Trial member may be varied from time to time. This category is not intended to be a substitute for the main playing categories of membership and should typically be for a period of 12 months maximum for “new” golfers recently learning the game. The current entitlements of Women’s Trial Members are;

  • Able to play in the competitions of the day but are not eligible for Board or Principal events.
  • No reciprocal rights are available.
  • Access to the clubhouse is on all days.
  • May introduce playing guests.
  • Can play unlimited golf off peak without paying guest fee – such as Monday, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays or after 12pm on Sunday.
  • Golflink handicap included
  • Tuition may be included
  • Only available to non-medway members on application or those who have not been a member of Medway for a period of 5 years.

LEVEL 4- I want to play regularly and are comfortable playing competition or at least wish to play regularly with golfers at a club level and make lots of new friends.

Traditional Membership offers- see Medway membership page for membership types.

Typical time spent in this category- hopefully for the rest of your playing days.

We are always here to help. Give us a call to explain things in more detail or register to start in one of the programs. If your on you own- don’t be concerned we will guide you along.
