BCLGA - INTER CLUB SHIELD HISTORY

All BCLGA affiliated clubs may enter a team for this Competition. Teams consist of THREE players. Each member of the team plays one round of STABLEFORD on current handicap, partnered by her opposite numbers in two of the other teams. The team with the highest aggregate of the TWO BEST SCORES from the three cards returned will be the winners of The Shield.

The Inter-Club Challenge Shield was proposed in 1925 by Mrs Edie Poulton who felt that something should be done for those not good enough for the County team. Teams of five played one match against each Club between March and June, with no matches halved. In 1933 the format changed to teams of four playing 18 holes medal play on one day, on a course chosen in rotation over the years. In 1970 there were teams of four, with the three best scores to count, and in 1991, teams of three with the best two scores counting. It also became a Stableford event. In 1963 the original Shield was destroyed in the Reading Golf Club fire. A Cup for the individual best score was given by Win Henney.
