How far are the female pros typically able to throw on the course?

I believe between 250'-350'. I think the leading distance thrower is either Des Reading or Val Jenkins.

250-380' on golf d.

ruth steele was probably the longest thrower but she blew out her shoulder and i don't know how far she is throwing now.

I believe somewhere I read that Des Reading had hit 440 with a Wraith.

I'd believe it that Des hit 440' In the same sense I feel I've come close on distance lines, but golf lines are key.

I can vouch for that. I saw Angela Tschiggfrie throw during a mini on my course a while back, and she is probably near the upper end of that mark.

angela is consistent in the 330-350' range.

the distances that women throw vary a lot by region.

because there is so few women players at an average tournament, let alone ones in the pro division, it is tough to develop a true average.
