In February 2018, Golf Australia launched a strategy to address a fundamental imbalance in the game and draw more women and girls to golf – Vision 2025. Recently Albert Park Women’s Golf Club became a proud signatory of the R&A Women in Golf Charter. Our club met the criteria set by Golf Australia’s Vision 2025 team. So, via the Charter’s guidelines, we will continue our mission to inspire women to play golf. To read more about the four pillars and other inspiring articles about the Vision 2025 please click here.

We win again!
Congratulations to our winning pennant teams! Yes, BOTH teams won!
The VGL pennant season was able to be played over six uninterrupted rounds from 21-Feb to 4-Apr. The club’s growing membership and interest in this event enabled us to field two teams. Northern GC hosted the finals again this year on 11-Apr.
Playing on the day in Team 1 were Annabel Hunt, Ro Lockyer, Angela Stein, Fiona Burn and Jan Boulton. And Team 2 players were Belinda Holt, Phil Power, Bev Austin, Lorraine Mair and Brenda McGuirk and Bev Austin. Emergencies throughout the season were Liz Cooper, Melita Gannon, Robyn Hunt, Glen McIntyre and Julie Turpin.
And a special thank you to our amazing girls who caddied – Eliza Billich, Liz Cooper, Sally Church, Siobhan Lyons and Glen McIntyre.
Well done and congratulations to all players and caddies.
