WELCOME TO BCLGA!

Whether you are new to golf, a low handicap player or somewhere in between, this website will give you everything you need to know about women’s golf in Berkshire.

As a county golf association we are part of the wider structure linking golfers and clubs to England Golf – the umbrella organisation responsible for men’s and women’s golf at regional and national level in England.

BCLGA is run by a committee of volunteers with the aim of promoting golf for women and girls from beginners right through to elite players. The association organises a calendar of events each year: these include competitions for members of affiliated clubs and matches for 1st, 2nd, Junior and Senior teams.

The highlight of the year is County Week in June, when the 1st teams of the six counties of our Midlands South region battle it out over five days of foursomes and singles matchplay golf, providing a wonderful spectator opportunity for golf fans.

We invite you to visit the different sections of this website to learn more about BCLGA, download competition entry forms and start sheets, follow the teams, and generally keep up to date with news and results.

County Captain's Message

 

Cathy Jones

Dear County Members

The golfing season is now well under way and the weather has been glorious (mainly!) with good scores at the Spring Meetings. It was a pleasure to present prizes and meeting some of you, I hope to meet many more during the year.

The County Championships at Caversham Heath saw an exciting final with Julia Warke beating Laura Webb on the 21st hole. A great final with nothing separating the pair in the first 20 holes but a final birdie putt from Julia just enough to clinch the win. Following the championships, we were able to select a team for County Week and they are:

Tracy Crew Avril Schmidt
Zoe Collins Emily Shaw
Sheree Dove Wilde Jane Sly
Katherine Irving Julia Warke
Djura Macrae Stoelwinder Laura Webb
Emily Savage Becky Webb

 

We were so close to winning last year, we will be trying very hard to find that extra point this year and I believe we have a great team ready to do battle this year.

County Match Week is at Kings Norton Golf Club 26 – 30 June and we would love to see any supporters during the week. It is a fairly easy journey and the club is located close to junction 3 of the M42.

There will be a link on our website to the host county’s website so that you can see live scores and our own website will be updated once or twice a day at the end of each session. The website will now also show the schedule of matches during the week if you wish to choose who you would like to see.

The team is looking forward to a successful week and we hope to see some supporters during the week.

In the meantime, keep playing good golf everybody and I hope the good weather will continue for all of us.

Cathy Jones
County Captain
