A Richmond ladies' public golf club is encouraging women over the age of 55 with a love for golf to join them this upcoming season.

The Country Meadows Tuesday Ladies Golf Club (CMTLG) will be kicking off the season on Tuesday, April 4, but interested golfers can join anytime.

The club meets every Tuesday morning with tee times between 8 and 10 a.m. at Richmond’s Country Meadows on No. 6 Road.

Gail Searson, secretary of GMTLG, said the club is a great way for ladies to bond over the sport, especially if they don’t have a regular place or group to play with.

“As seniors retire, we look for ways to fill our time, and we also need to make and cultivate new friendships,” she said, adding there are about 90 members in the club now.

“We have long-standing members from all over the Lower Mainland, including North Vancouver, Surrey, Delta, Burnaby and Burnaby, who come to Richmond to play every week.”

Searson told the Richmond News the best part of belonging to a club is having a guaranteed set of tee times.

“In the past, women had to fight to get tee times … and they wouldn’t allow us to go out on the course in the morning because that was considered prime time,” said Searson, adding there is a demand for public clubs as some private clubs can get quite pricey.

“Luckily, we have a block of tee time on a public course for our ladies’ group thanks to Country Meadows.”

The annual membership for the CMTLG is $140, which covers membership with Golf Canada, Golf BC, meals during special events, such as the club championships, and more.
