Border Ladies AGM - Thursday 28th October

We will be holding our AGM this year on Thurs 28th Oct 2021 at St Boswells golf club.

We welcome everyone to our meeting at 1900hrs to help us discuss and move forward with the Border Ladies.

It would be super if we could have a representative from each club as we confirm all our 2022 dates for the season and if we clash with any large events / club championships we can certainly look to change.


We are changing the constitution at the AGM , we hope this will encourage more ladies to come and play for the County.  Please click the link below to check it out

We look forward to catching up on the 28th.

Border Ladies AGM - 28th October

Well ladies we are at that time of year again.

We will be holding our AGM on Thursday evening the 28th Oct at St Boswells golf club 1900hrs.

It would be great if we could have representation from all the clubs in the Borders.

We will have the dates for the 2022 calendar.

This year 2021 we had the Championships in Aug which the majority of ladies asked seemed to think it was a better option than early May so we will be changing to the qualifier early Aug for 2022 with the finals at the end of Aug.

We are also changing the Constitution to hopefully allow more ladies to participate in Border competitions.

So lots of forward movement in the BLCGA

Please if you have any points you wish to bring to our attention please either email me at denisegrich7@outlook.com or we look forward to you attending the AGM


We have 2 vacancies on the committee, so please if you wish to come on board  contact me for further information.

Secretary post ( honestly not to hectic just need to be organised for 3 committee meetings and the AGM with emails from SG to be actioned)  and  1 x general member


See you on the 28th Oct


Cheers Denise Richards
