2020 update

Hi Ladies

I hope you are all keeping well during these times.

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and in keeping with the guidelines set out by Scottish Golf, we have decided to cancel all BLCGA competitions for the remainder of the season. This decision was not taken lightly.

I wish you all the best for the remaining season and I look forward to a great 2021 season for the county.

We will be in touch with a date for the AGM in October however in the meantime, please take care.

COVID-19 UPDATE - CANCELLATION OF BLCGA COMPETITIONS

Dear All,

We hope you are keeping safe and well. 

We presume you are all aware of the recent statement released by Scottish Golf with regards to the cancellation of all events in the 2020 calendar.  Therefore, we feel it is appropriate to take action to cancel the following competitions in our calendar in the near future -
  • Championship weekend
  • Team Tournament
  • South Jamboree
  • Commonwealth Spoons
The only remaining competition in the calendar now is the Lawrie Quaich Texas Scramble on Sunday 6th September at Lauder GC. We will monitor this competition and make a decision nearer the time. 

Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister last night and the new guidelines set out by Scottish Golf, the spring qualifier has been cancelled.

We will monitor the Championship weekend in the coming weeks in-keeping with the Scottish Golf guidelines and government policies. If you could please email Tara with entries for the Championship and on this occasion, we will do a random draw for the Silver division from the entries if it is to go ahead.

Take care and We will be in touch regarding the Championship weekend in due course.
