August 2014                         
    From the Captain
, Mrs Jennifer Fallows

The weather and the golf has been superb in July so let us hope that this will continue into August.
During the month we will hold the Lancashire County Handicap Trophy , probably better known as the Lady Derby. The qualifying round is on Thursday 7th August at Bolton Old Links. This event is open to all the members of clubs in Lancashire so if you would like to play please contact Mrs Beverely Scholes. The sixteen top scores will go forward to the Finals at Ashton-under-Lyne on 21st and 22nd August.
The Frances Smith Final will be played at the end of the month at Bolton Golf Club.
For many of our clubs the Shield matches have been completed and the Local Area Finals will be arranged and played this month.
Six of our younger, less experienced players will be attending the Junior Jamboree in Durham and there is a fun day for all our beginner juniors at Chilli Dip Driving Range later in the month.
Once again a busy month of golf to look forward to.          

                     The next Delegates meeting is on 12th September 2014.
            This will be held at Pleasington Golf Club at 10.00 am for 10.30 am.
                  Please attend or send a representative from your club!
