Jenny Cleghorn - St Boswells 16th April

Great to see such a good entry for the first Comp of the season. You should have all received a note of the draw by email. Entry is £12 per team and a two's sweep at £2 per team. It would help the Committee greatly if you could bring the correct change. The St Boswells ladies are kindly providing cakes and scones to purchase. See you then Kirsty

Borders Trophy - message from our Past Captain Denise RIchards

 Good Morning Ladies

My last wee message to all our Border Lady golfers. I would just like to thank everyone for their support over the 2022 season and wish you all well for 2023 under the new leadership of Kirsty and her committee.

The AGM was well supported on Monday evening and under the section of AOB I brought to the attention of the ladies, a competition which was organized and run by each club alphabetically over the years but was NOT a BLCGA competition.

The Jedburgh ladies brought me a "Black box" at the end of our season which they had come across in their club and thought it would be of interest to us. It contained the minutes / constitution of the competition which was played for from 1949-2009. Kirsty and I have been trying to locate the two trophies, we have managed to find the Lady Henderson Trophy, silver division (the original county champion) but we have not found the Pettigrew Cup for the bronze.

Please could I ask everyone to hunt in their club's cupboards/ storage areas to help us locate the cup, it is a silver quaich 20cm diameter engraved "Pettigrew Cup Border Ladies Golf Tournament  - bronze division'  the trophy has two plinths, one wooden and one black.

Peebles /Hirsel/Melrose and Torwoodlee have been checked.

We would really like to start the competition again as it seems a shame to have these historical trophies sitting in cupboards.
Please contact us on our email to say if you have searched your clubs with or without success.

Many Thanks 
Denise Richards (Past Captain)

Message from our new captain - Kirsty Inkpen

 First of all it was lovely to see so many faces at last night's AGM which was held at Melrose Golf Club. Thank you to all the ladies that turned up and also to Melrose Golf Club for allowing us to hold the AGM there.

I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank Denise Richards for all the hard work she has put into the Border Ladies County over a number of years I think its fair to say we may not of had a County Association without her efforts in keeping it going. Well done Denise.

I am really honoured to be taking on the role as the County Captain. I have been a member of the county for over 30 years and loved every minute of it. Golf is a great game although can be very frustrating at times but we make so many friends along the way and see some wonderful courses.

I would also like to wish Dawn Tomlinson (Hirsel GC) all the best for the year ahead as the Border Vets Captain.

See below the 2023 fixtures for you all to see. I think the V1 has helped with our communication and allowed us to reach a far wider audience and keep everyone up to date with all things Borderladies Golf.

Please remember if you have any questions just email Borderladiesgolf21@gmail.com and we will get back to as soon as we can.

I look forward to seeing everyone for the new season in 2023

Kirsty Inkpen


Thanks to all who attended the County AGM  held at Melrose Golf Club, it was great to see you all and thank you for your support.
