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.

Vacancies for County Junior Organiser, Coaching Organiser, Match Organiser and Secretary

The Junior Section of BCLGA (Berkshire Girls Golf) is a vital part of our organisation. Under the leadership of Pauline Cameron and her enthusiastic committee we have seen an increasing number of girls taking up golf. The team have also encouraged the junior players to progress through the Berkshire coaching pathway and with organized competitions and matches. Many past junior players are members of the current county first team.

Pauline, Sarla, Pera & Annie have all been working together in their roles for many years and feel it is time to pass on to new volunteers in November. We are grateful to all of them for their enthusiasm and dedication. The Junior section of our website shows what good things are happening with our juniors.

These young players will be the Club members of the future and we need to continue to invest in this work but without your help this county supported section will not be able to continue.

Some of the roles can be shared, some involve interacting with the girls and parents and some can be done from home in your own time.

If you can help in this rewarding work then please contact Pauline Cameron or any of the other Junior Committee or myself for more information on these roles. Contact details can be found here.
