Welcome to the Berkshire Lady Captains' Golf Society (BLCGS)

We are a society for all current and past lady captains whose clubs are signed up to the society. Following a resolution at this year's AGM (13 March), we are delighted to welcome clubs with fewer than 18-holes to our membership. We are all looking forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones.

The handicaps of our members range from low single figures to pretty high! No-one's golf is too good or too bad to play with us (after all, this is a handicap game). So don't let your handicap hold you back from joining.

The society organises three meetings a year. The Spring Meeting will be/will have been at The Berkshire on 12 April. The Summer Meeting this year is at Oakland Park, Bucks. This will be a not-too-serious competition for teams of two. There will be a variety of formats to keep the competitors on their toes and if the golf isn't too good, hopefully the well-stocked pro's shop will compensate with some retail therapy. Our Autumn Meeting will be at my home club, Goring and Streatley. We had fairway irrigation installed in 2018 which meant the course was in immaculate condition all last year; I'm sure it will be even better this coming season. So forget about the hill and come and give it a try!

As well as the meetings, we play matches against the past ladies' captains of six neighbouring counties, the Berkshire lady vets and the Berkshire club captains. This gives us the opportunity to play some stunning golf courses which we might not ordinarily do - and I'm looking forward this year to travelling to the Sussex coast. These matches are played in a friendly but competitive spirit and I will be posting the results on the website. If you are new to the society and haven't been able to indicate any availability, it is worthwhile getting in touch with me as places do open up during the year.

On the website you will find not only match reports but also start sheets and current news about the society. If there is anything you would particularly like to read about, do let me know.

If you haven't yet joined us - or have let your membership lapse - then click here to download the application and renewal form.  If you need any further information Jenny Chadwick, our secretary, will be happy to help you.

I hope the sun will shine on all of us this season and that our golf will match the weather. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the year.

Wishing you happy and successful golfing year.
