Welcome to the Berkshire Lady Captain’s Golf Society (BLCGS)
We are a society for all current and past lady captains of affiliated Berkshire clubs. You do not have to have a low handicap to join, we welcome all handicaps and will give everyone an opportunity to play in our meetings or matches.
The society organises three meetings a year. The application forms are sent out by email approximately 8-10 weeks before the meeting. If you do not receive an email, contact our secretary, Irene Manson. The Spring Meeting this year will be/will have been at Sonning Golf Club on 4 May. There are trophies to be won but it doesn’t have to be too serious, come along and have a relaxed game of golf. The Summer Meeting is at Farnham Golf Club on 29 July. The course runs through a heathland site with acid grasslands and beautiful heather. The format will be a competition for teams of two. I hope this will be a fun day out with friends, good food and hopefully good weather. Our Autumn Meeting on 6 October will be at my home club, Sand Martins. The course is in Finchampstead, Wokingham and it has two distinct and contrasting nine holes. The outward nine is set in parkland with small lakes and dog leg holes. The back nine has more of a links style feel to it. The format for the day is a NQ stableford. Again, there will be trophies to play for, but I hope you will come along to enjoy the course and the social aspects of a day out with friends.
As well as the meetings, we play matches against the past lady captains of six neighbouring counties, the Berkshire lady vets and the Berkshire club captains (there is one lady club captain in the society). These matches are played in a friendly but competitive spirit. If you are new to the society or 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 you haven’t yet joined us, contact our secretary, Irene Manson and she will be happy to help you. You can use the link on the right of this page to contact Irene. The annual fee for membership is only £7 a calendar year.
We do have a BLCGS polo shirt and sweater that we ask you to wear for the matches. If you would like further details of the kit please contact our Vice Captain, Carole Smith using the email link aside. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the year. Wishing you a happy golfing year.
