Welcome to the BDLGA - The site for ladies' league golf in Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire
It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of Gill Prophet on Sunday 18th July. She has been a member of the BDLGA committee for 5 years as our honorary treasurer. We will miss her determination in chivvying , phoning and visiting the banks to ensure that our finances are kept secure. She was always a forceful presence at meetings and despite her terminal diagnosis she, typically, even joined in our last zoom meeting from her hospital bed. We are very grateful for all that she has achieved on our behalf.
Her funeral will be held on Tuesday 10th August, the details of which have been sent to all Alliance Ladies' Captains.
**URGENT - COMMITTEE MEMBERS FOR NEXT YEAR**
We urgently need nominees to fill the roles of Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer and Championship Secretary next year. Please contact any of the committee if you feel you can undertake this commitment to help the BDLGA run smoothly.
A temporary change to the Rules has been made for the season, to assist captains in choosing a team whose handicap indexes may may well change during the week but who can remain eligible to play for that team. Please see the updated Rules on the League page.
The new date for this is now 24th November 2021, provisionally at Knowle Golf Club providing social distancing is no longer required.
Regarding buggies for those with a certificate/letter from their doctor (these should include the nature of the problem), the committee discussed the fact that some courses may be closed to buggies due to inclement weather, so it is important that the Team Captains are both aware that this may be a problem if the area has heavy rain overnight and the club team concerned may find it necessary to have a walking replacement ready at short notice.
