From the Captain, Mrs Jennifer Fallows
I always regard March as a month of hope! Hope that the worst of the winter is over and we can look forward to the coming golfing season.
This month will see the Executive members putting the finishing touches to the plans for the events we are holding this year.
At the same time the Regional Training groups will be holding training sessions for the girls new to golf and with higher handicaps. We now have 6 training centres around the County so there is one near you if you know of any girls who are interested in playing or 'Having a Go'. The photo was taken at the first Regional Sessional session at Southport Golf Academy on 1st March and features the LLCGA Manager Sue Griffiths and Coach Alison Gray.
Welcome to Lancashire Ladies' County Golf Association!
