Welcome to Lancashire County Senior Ladies' Golf Association




Message from our Captain Fiona Anderson

I would like to thank all the Ex Captains for giving me the opportunity to be your Captain for 2021. I would also like to thank my club, Formby Ladies', for the support that they have already given me.

A lot of work has already been going on behind the scenes, and I know that we will have a challenging year again, but I believe that 2021 will be better than 2020, and I hope we will all get to play some golf!

I would compare the situation we're in to a dogleg on the golf course, and as most of us have had the first vaccination, I hope we're round the corner with the green in sight, and no hidden trouble guarding the green!

As you know, all the startsheets for the 2021 competitions are now in the Members' private area for you to check.  The Championship will open for entries at a later date.  There are still a few spaces at West derby on 8th July should you wish to play in another team event.  There's a varied selection of courses and I hope to see you around the County. It feels quite exciting getting back to seeing old friends.

Due to Covid 19 regulations please remember that if a member of your team cannot play you must inform the Competition Organisers as soon as possible and certainly BEFORE THE DAY OF THE EVENT.  

Please also remember to check out the NCVLGA website to find out when and where their pre and post season team events will be in 2021. 

Additional dates that may be of interest are the Northern Championship which will be held at Bishop Auckland in Durham from 18th – 20th May and the Jamboree, which will be held at Glenbervie Golf Club from 2nd – 5th August.

Also, The Brenda King Foursomes was a resounding success last year. This year it will be played at Wollaton Park Golf Club, Nottingham from 26th -28th July, follow the link for full details and entry form. Brenda King Foursomes

The Mere Golf and Country club have kindly agreed to hold the event in 2022. Practice day is Sunday July 24th and the competition itself is Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th of July. 

In the meantime we mustn't take our eyes off the ball. We must remain ever vigilant and beat the virus.

I wish you all a safe and successful 2021!

 

Fiona Anderson

Joan Celebrates her 100th Birthday!!

Joan Cheedle

In these Covid times it's good to have something uplifting to report on.  Our most long standing member, Joan Cheadle, from Bolton Old Links was 100 years young at the beginning of January.  As you can see she received her birthday card from the Queen and was inundated with cards and presents.  Joan's lowest handicap was 6 and she was a very keen competitor. Joan also proved to be very supportive as Captain of both the LCVLGA team and the NCVLGA Jamboree Team.  A list of her achievements are below.

Captain of LCVLGA and winner of the Lady Derby Challenge Cup 1983
President Manchester and District Ladies Golf Association 1985
Captain Northern Counties Veteran Ladies' Golf Association 1987
Winner of the Lancashire County Veteran Ladies' Championship 1987
President LCVLGA 1996-97

Covid 19

With COVID19 regulations and restrictions changing frequently we wanted to let you know what our intentions are in 2021.

We intend to run all competitions in 2021, if advice provided by the Government and England Golf allow. We will ensure that our priority will always be the health and safety of all competitors and organisers, before making any decisions which may affect them.

Please check the website regularly for up-dates and developments. We would like to thank you for your continued support of the Association.

Events Update 3rd March 2021

The ballot for all competitions has now been done and if you log into the private area of the website you will find your entries under "Competition Entries".  All members have been emailed with this information today.
The next stage is the allocation of tee times which will be done in the next week by the Competition Organisers. 
If you have been allocated an entry in any of our 2021 events and your team cannot play, please contact the Organisers of the appropriate event IMMEDIATELY so that your team's place can be offered to another team on the Waiting List BEFORE tee times have been allocated.

 

If your team has not been successful for a particular event, you will have automatically been put on the Waiting List, and could still be offered a place in the event should any of the teams withdraw.  If you do not wish to remain on the Waiting List, please contact the Organisers of the appropriate event WITHOUT DELAY to withdraw your team.  In this case your cheque will be destroyed.
There are 2 Organisers for each event so please email them both.  Their details are all on the document which was attached to the email sent out today.  All changes to teams must be notified in advance of each competition to fulfil any Covid 19 regulations which may still be in place throughout 2021. 

 

Events Update 23rd February 2021

Just a reminder. For those of you who haven’t made any Entry Requests yet the closing date is 28th February, which is Sunday.
Entries have gone extremely well and the only competitions at this moment which will not require a ballot for places are the Silver Slipper for the over 65’s, the team event at West Derby and the Cecil Leitch at Huyton & Prescot. 
Even these events are almost full so if you haven’t booked yet, go to our website www.lcslga.org.uk and make your Entry Requests before Sunday.
 

 

Events Update 22nd January 2021

In view of the uncertainty around the possible restrictions that could be in place in late April, we have decided to postpone our 2021 Championship and Silver Meeting. It will now be played from 26th - 28th September but still at Formby Ladies. Everyone involved has their fingers and toes crossed that the September sun will shine on us. LCSLGA are extremely grateful to Formby Ladies' Golf Club for allowing this delay. More information will follow in due course about dates for submission of your entries so keep watching the website.
In addition, the Autumn Team Event which was due to be at Blackburn Golf Club will now be at Lytham Green Drive Golf Club, still on 6th September.

Events Update 8th January 2021

We plan to open entries for all our events on 31st January, with a closing date of 28th February.   Before you make your entry requests you will need to update your new WHS HANDICAP INDEX onto your Member Details by logging into the secure area of our website.  Click here to log in  and then click on Member Details to check your details and update your Handicap Index.  If you need help logging in click here for instructions.  Click here for help on making your Online Entry Requests

 

Changes for 2021 - In 2021, due to Covid 19 tee time restrictions the Championship and Silver Meeting at Formby Ladies' Golf Club will be played in three's. If you do not know enough members to enter in a three, you can enter online in a two or as a single player and the Organiser, Mrs Christine Entwistle will endeavour to organise you into three's.

 

The Cecil Leitch Trophy, which was a 5 club better ball stableford is still a better ball stableford but now you can use up to 14 clubs.

Things to Remember for 2021

1 Please bring up to date proof of handicap.

We accept certificates of your new WHS handicap index which you can print off using your club's website. We also accept proof of your handicap index from your mobile phone, which can be from your club or the Englandgolf app. In future, therefore, please bring the required alternative proofs of your up to date handicap index.

2 Inclement weather.

Please check on the website of the venue to see if there is a telephone number to ring to find out the status of the course on the day of the event. In addition, the Organiser of the event will have sent you, as part of your confirmation, an emergency mobile number to ring on the day.
