Challenge Match - between BDLGA and Cotswold League
for the Bath Aqua Glass Bowl



The annual match between the previous year’s winners of the Bristol & District Ladies Golf Alliance league and the Cotswold & District Ladies Golf Alliance for 2019, was eventually played on Sunday 17th October 2021.  This was between Bristol and Clifton A team and Cotswold Hills from Gloucestershire.  The delay of 18 months was of course due to COVID-19.

It was a wonderful sunny day with a light breeze.  The course was in lovely condition and there was some excellent golf played. Some of the matches were very closely fought but Bristol and Clifton obviously benefitted from their home advantage, as they won 14/0.


Afterwards the players enjoyed an excellent tea with delicious cake so very many thanks to Bristol and Clifton for their hospitality. 


The winners of  BDLGA 2021 will go up to Cotswold Hills in Spring 2022 for the next Aqua Challenge  match. All spectators will be welcome .
