BLCGS and COVID-19: Latest news

Our fixtures, matches and meetings until the end of May are cancelled.
See Captain's Welcome below for further details or check each individual fixture in 'FUTURE BLCGS EVENTS'.


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


Thank you, Ladies, for looking in. This forward is going a little off-piste this year, as we face a summer of uncertainty, and not just in our Society - 2020 will be unique in all of our lifetimes and certainly will be one to remember, but not for the right reasons. Having had a very happy and successful AGM on March 11, as your new Captain, I am naturally hugely disappointed that because of Covid-19 our programme of matches and events will either have to be cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future.

The usual plan is that the Society organises three meetings a year. The Spring Meeting is held in the early summer at The Berkshire GC, but sadly has had to be cancelled. The 'fun format' Summer Meeting should take place at The Springs, Wallingford in July, and the Autumn Meeting at Sonning is to be combined with our President's Prize Day at the end of September. At this point we really can't say that anything will go ahead, and your own judgment is as valid as ours in this regard! We will however do all we can to make sure you have the information you need to keep you updated as the year progresses.

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 lovely golf courses which we might not ordinarily do. The matches this year were very well-subscribed, but as they may not go ahead, do please keep your enthusiasm in abeyance for one more year and make Mary very happy when she comes to organise the 2021 season. We welcome players of all handicaps in the matches and the Summer and Autumn Meetings are open to all too. The Spring meeting is for 30 and below.

In these difficult times, it's important for us to keep in touch and support each other as I'm sure, while some of our ladies will be coping well in isolation, some may not. I do believe that the friendships we form because of our shared interests, will be a help to us as we navigate our way through these rough seas, or should I say, steeper than usual bunkers?
If you have any questions about the Society, there are contact forms on the website, and a link below for joining or renewing membership, but as I'm not nearly as busy as I expected to be, please do pick up the phone and have a chat with me anytime you like on my direct number or drop me an email anytime. It all passes the time, especially if you're like me and find household chores less than scintillating!

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.

Kind regards to you all and please stay well
