Professional Golfer Cara Gainer

The Club Company are pleased to be partnered with professional golfer Cara Gainer, as she continues her meteoric rise in the world of women’s golf.

The partnership perfectly represents The Club Company’s commitment to championing its members and the local community, ensuring everyone has a chance to achieve their own version of ‘greatness.’

  • Cara’s Career

    After finishing 16th on the 2023 year end rankings and reaching a career high of 145 in the Rolex World rankings, Cara is poised to make waves in the golfing world. With plans to secure her card on the LPGA next year and participate in all major championships, Cara is set to captivate and inspire audiences, and to inspire considerable airtime.

    Despite a rapid ascent, Cara remains deeply connected to her roots, having been a member of The Club Company’s Castle Royle Club since the age of 14. Her commitment to the club is evident in every interview and television appearance, including her recent mini-documentary “From Scratch,” which was featured during the build-up to the Open Championship.

  • The Club Company CEO

    Richard Calvert, CEO of The Club Company, said:

    “The Club Company is honoured to be associated with a player who not only excels on the green but also remains a passionate advocate for her home club, which resonates deeply with The Club Company’s commitment to fostering an inclusive, empowering environment for all.”

    “In a time where women’s professional golf is experiencing a deserved surge in popularity, we are delighted to contribute to this momentum and with such a remarkable and dedicated athlete. It’s more than just about golf; it’s about inspiring young women to break barriers and forge their paths in the world of sport. We believe her story will inspire young members of our clubs to embrace the sport and aim for greatness.”

Cara's Season

In February, Cara’s season began in Kenya before trips to Saudi Arabia and Morocco, with improved finishes week on week. 

Florida was next on the schedule where she began the Aramco Team Series, achieving a top 20 finish. A brief stop back home before heading down under, where she posed an impressive -8, on the way to a 4th place finish. The Australian leg was dampened by the weather the following week, where after an impressive -5 in the first round, the rain put an end to the tournament, however a lot of positives for Cara, trending in the right direction.

A break from the Ladies European Tour then saw Cara compete in the Rose Ladies Golf Series, a collection of one day events over multiple venues which was set up by men’s tour player and major winner, Justin Rose and wife Kate to help boost the ladies’ game in England. At Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club, Cara battled the 35mph winds to claim victory! This was followed up with a 2nd place finish a few days later at Sunningdale.

It was then back to the skies and off to South Korea in the next stage of the Aramco Team Series where great fight was shown in tough conditions on her way to another top 20 finish. Possibly the best performance of the season came in Sweden at the beginning of June, storming to the lead after a 7-under round one, Cara finished the week in 5th place but once again challenging at the top, not far away from claiming her first tour victory.

Club Events with Cara

    At the end of April, The Club at Cams Hall Estate showcased the brand-new health club through their first Open Weekend. Cara headed down to Fareham to assist on the day and officially opened the club as the honorary ribbon cutter. Golf members then gathered as she held a Q&A session, before heading out to play the newly remodelled course with the club Captains.
  • Faldo Futures at The Warwickshire

    We had the pleasure of hosting one of the eight regional qualifiers for the Faldo Series at The Warwickshire in May, a competition for junior golfers to test their game all over the country, created by legendary golfer, Sir Nick Faldo. Cara was on hand once again to provide some valuable advice and inspiration to this next generation of golfers. Leading a lesson to a handful of children, cheering them on their way as they teed off and also providing a Q&A session to the members of the club once more, brilliant to see the support shown by Cara.
Cara's Media Day

Cara's Media Day

In between Cara’s busy schedule on tour, she has also proved a fantastic ambassador for the company. Working back at Castle Royle between tournaments with coach Rob Watts, Cara has made the most of both golf and health facilities at the Club, as shown during the media day we had with her. Cara stresses the importance of both group exercise classes and gym work to help aid her overall performance, improving on core strength and balance in particular, recovery also being crucial, a great excuse to head to the spa!

“Pilates is a great way to keep in good shape. The focus on core strength and flexibility is key for the golf swing, it’s great for toning up and keeping everything intact, especially with all the travel we do.” - Cara Gainer
