Our continued commitment to growing female participation in golf has been recognised by the R&A.
We are already delivering a number of initiatives for girls and women of all ages and abilities to progress in the game and this was the foundation of our accepted bid to be a signatory to the R&A’s new Women in Golf Charter.
Informing us of our success on behalf of the R&A Jeremy Tomlinson, CEO of England Golf, said:
“I was personally delighted to read the commitments that you have made as part of your commitment to the Women in Golf Charter.
Chesterfield Golf Club will be inspiring other clubs from across the country to develop across all levels of the sport.”
Among the initiatives we will continue to run for girls and ladies are:
The initiatives have led to over 20 new lady members progressing to join the club in the last two years and we’re committed to growing the ladies’ section a further 10% by the end of 2022.
At the heart of this is ensuring a warm welcome, making golf fun and instilling a camaraderie as groups progress through coaching on our six-hole academy course before heading out onto the main course.
We’re also ahead of the game with the level of female representation in our club governance. We’ve pledged not to rest on our laurels and have committed to ensuring this continues.
We welcomed 168 players in the last Gents Seniors Open AmAm of this year – it was a very different day to the previous wet and wild Open back in July, as the sun shone down on our glorious course and happy golfers!
Congratulations to our winners:
Well played all! We’ll be in touch with details of your prizes.
We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.

Work will start shortly on further enhancing our practice facilities after a successful bid to the R&A’s COVID-19 Support Fund.
We’re delighted to have received the maximum available award of £10k towards a project which will slightly extend existing practice ground facilities, level areas used for practice, improve drainage and irrigation, and introduce matting for year-round use.
It adds to recent course and clubhouse improvements and enhances the membership offer at our club.
It’s been a cracking few days for our junior section
First, Eva Myers was crowned Derbyshire Under 14s Girls Champion after shooting a fabulous 84 gross at Kedleston Park Golf Club.
