HILL BARN GOLF COURSE has a thriving Ladies Section and prides itself on being friendly and welcoming to all standards of players.
Whatever the season, Hill Barn is a beautiful place to play..
For the current 2019/2020 year our captain is Wendy Smith (Wenz)
Ladies golf competitions are generally held on a Tuesday and Saturday. The main day for competitions is Saturday and the alternate day is Tuesday, both with reserved morning tee times.
Friendly competitions are organised against other Clubs in Sussex and are played during the week and at the weekend. The Section puts forward a strong team for the Daily Mail Foursomes and the County Competitions (Morrice Fours, Kathleen Rider and Jerdein Memorial). In recent years Club members have reached the final of the Daily Mail Foursomes and been runners up in the national final of the Ping Women's Fourball Betterball Tournament
Competitions are held throughout the year - some of our trophies date back to 1937.

We enter the Sussex County League (Div 4). Players of all levels are encouraged to take part in these matches.
14 qualifiers took part in our Club Championship over 36 holes. The scratch winner was Wendy Smith on 176, with runner-up Jane Smith on 182. Handicap prize went to Sue Waghorn with a nett 138. A good day was had by all the players and helpers!
Remembering our dear friend Barbara Carter (Captain 2010/2011)...
"...analyse your par 3's"
The Section holds several social events throughout the year and these have included a meal with prize giving after the Club Championship, Ladies Invitation, a golfing holiday, Captains Away Day, skittles evening, ten tin bowling, dinner at the dogs, quiz evenings, dinner and dance and Christmas meal.
The 2019 Christmas night out included an early meal at Casa Ciro following which everyone had a brilliant time at the Tina Turner tribute night!
Several fun competitions take place, the most popular being the Sparrows Texas Scramble followed by breakfast and the Irish Medal where teams of four play with just one Club each.
The support of charities is very important to the Section and competitions are run to support Breast Cancer Care, Macmillan and the nominated charity of the Ladies Captain.
Four of our members took on the challenge of playing four rounds in one day to raise funds for this year's Captain's charity, Ferring Country Centre, raising £1,353 for this very worthwhile cause.
