COVID-19: BCLGA response

Covid-19 Update – 14th May 2020

County competitions cancelled for the rest of the year.

The County Executive met yesterday to review our competitions due to take place from June onwards. We are delighted that golf has resumed this week albeit with restricted play. However, it will be July at the earliest before clubhouses can open – and that is likely to be on a restricted basis.

It is difficult to imagine that, before the end of the season, restrictions will be lifted enough to allow clubs to host large groups of visiting golfers, using communal changing facilities and sitting down to eat together. One can add into this scenario the duty of care we have to our competition secretaries who would have to handle scorecards and meet many competitors. It is, therefore, with regret the Exec has taken the decision to abandon this year’s competitions. (This includes competitions for Juniors only.)

If you have entered a competition and paid by bank transfer please email our treasurer with the details.

If circumstances change we will consider and end-of-year fun jamboree to celebrate getting golf back!

In the meantime, enjoy whatever golf you are able to play and we’ll look forward to starting afresh in 2021
