Women’s 2-Day Tournament May 2023

2023 Winner List


Women’s Golf

Ballina Golf Club has a strong contingent of female players who are able to
play competition golf five days a week.

Our Midweek women’s only competitions, are conducted Tuesday
mornings between early February and mid-December. 
Tuesday competitions normally attract over 90 players.

In addition, women can play in the medley competition every Monday, Thursday and Friday and those who
join as Select or Lifestyle are eligible for the Women’s Saturday competition.

We also have a keen group of nine-holers who hit off Tuesdays and Thursdays from midday. This
provides new or inexperienced players with the opportunity to play in a
relaxed environment while learning the etiquette and basics of the game.
See below for more detail.

We provide a varied program of events on Tuesdays and Thursdays,
including a Monthly Medal (stroke), Stableford, pars, 4balls, team
competitions, Single and Fourball Matchplay knockouts as well as the
important honour board events: Club Championships, Foursomes
Championship and Mixed Foursomes (played on weekends).

We also have a number of ongoing events during the year such as eclectics
and Stableford challenge point scores, and our committed Veterans
Committee conducts a range of activities in addition to those already

So, there is something for everyone at Ballina Golf Club: it is a friendly,
sociable environment and we always welcome new players.
