The Women in Golf Charter is an R&A initiative supported by England Golf to encourage more women and                  girls into the sport. The Charter aims to challenge some of the negative stereotypes attached to golf, create                    inclusive golf club cultures and open the game up to women and girls of all ages.The appeal of the Women in                Golf Charter to Clitheroe GC was based around the family centred approach of the initiative, making golf                      accessible to all women, including those who work full time, and encouraging more girls to get into the sport,              which can foster life long friendships and prove to be a fun and humbling game to play.  

We are sincerely hopeful that all of our commitments and plans around the Women in Golf Charter are successful        in attracting local women and girls to Clitheroe Golf Club. We would strongly encourage anyone interested to              sign up for one of our taster sessions so that they can see for themselves how great the game of golf truly is.
