We are extremely excited to announce that Windaroo Lakes Golf Club has been approved as an official R&A Women in Golf Charter Signatory.
 
This charter is in line with Golf Australia's Women and Girls' Engagement Plan, which aims to inspire and encourage women and girls to participate in golf, create a welcoming environment, and empower them to achieve their goals.
We are proud to be one of the first clubs in Queensland to receive this approval, and extend our heartfelt appreciation to our members and community for fostering a supportive environment for everyone.
 
We would like to give special recognition to our Women's Coordinator, Janine Barney whose Golf Fore Women program has been at the forefront of promoting women's golf. Her passion and innovation have led to record numbers of women taking up the sport at Windaroo Lakes, which we are sure has been noticed by many at the club and in the wider industry.
 
The Women and Girls' Engagement Plan

The Women and Girls’ Engagement Plan is playing a critical role in increasing leadership & participation in golf in Australia through five key areas of the game, that align with Australian Golf’s National Strategy:

  4. Attracting New Fans and Growing Revenue
  5. Working together

Then on Holes 7-12 only the top 2 players’ scores may be combines for the total on each of those holes,
then on Holes 13-18 it could be the 2 lowest scores that are used.
The scoring format will be advised prior to the start of play.

A player hits the second shot with their partner’s ball and they then play alternate shots with that ball until holed out.
Handicap allowance – 3/8 of combined handicaps.

American Foursomes

2 Player Team.
Both players hit off on all tees. They then play 2 second shot with their partners ball.
One ball is then selected and the owner of that ball plays the third shot.

Foursomes

2 Player Team.
Only one ball is used. Players take turns to tee off and then play alternate shots until the ball is holed.

Here’s a hint for Foursomes strategy. Determine which are the toughest driving holes on the course. Factor that into your decision on who hits off at the 1 st tee. You want your best driver to be teeing off on as many of the toughest driving holes as possible.
