Welcome to the BDLGA - The site for ladies' league golf in Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire
Su Worthington - Bristol & Clifton
It is with much sadness that we have learned that Su has died after a short illness. Su was A Team Captain for B&C for a number of years up until the 2019 AGM, when she passed the baton on.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time. There will be a celebration of her life at B&C soon - details will be circulated for those who knew Su to come along and pay their respects.
Request for committee members
Both Angie Frith (Hon Secretary) and Gill Prophet (Hon Treasurer) will have completed their five-year term on committee in November. We need to identify successors in good time so please contact us on the usual e-mail address if you are interested in either of these positions.
The winner of the West of England Amateur Open Ladies Championship played on 9th June 2019 at Bath Golf Club was Ellen Hume with an excellent gross aggregate score of 148.
The winner of the Costeloe Cup was Grace Bowen from The Worcestershire with an aggregate nett score of 147.
Thank you to Diney Costeloe for yet again generously sponsoring this prestigious event and also to both Gloucester and Somerset Ladies County Golf Associations for their additional sponsorship. For more information and full results please see the Open Championship page

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.
