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.

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.

Alison Melvin
Kirsty Inkpen
June-Anne Clark
Orla O’Leary

I will let you arrange lifts between yourselves. If we could arrange for someone to pick up Orla that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you then.
