Ladies have been golfing at Sheringham Golf Club since 1891, however the great age of Sheringham Golf Club for ladies begins nationally with Joyce Wethered’s success on the course in the English Ladies’ Golf Championship in June 1920 when she triumphed over the then reigning Champion Miss Cecil Leitch in a 36 hole final, winning on the 35th hole.
Miss Wethered went on to win five successive English titles and four of the six British championships in which she competed and due to her total concentration, was responsible for the naming of Sheringham’s 17th hole “What Train”, a response she gave when asked why a passing train had not put her off her stroke.
As well as hosting the championship again in 1950 and 1991, Sheringham has been privileged to host many major and county events, the most recent being the Senior Ladies’ Home International matches in September 2010 in which England triumphed over Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Ladies Day is a Tuesday when we have our regular medal and stableford competitions sprinkled with friendly games, club competitions for the various trophies, open and invitation days. There are always lots of opportunities to play golf and socialise.
