Welcome to the Lancashire Ladies' County Golf Association website. We are here to provide training and competitions for golfers at all levels of the game, from young girls who have yet to hit a ball, to elite golfers representing their County and their Country. So whether you have no handicap, play off 54, or are a scratch golfer, we look forward to meeting you at our events.

A lot has happened since my last message, and I am pleased to say that the Interclub qualifying rounds at Silverdale, Bury, Hurlston Hall and Whitefield were all played in good conditions and a good golfing day was had by all. Congratulations to the winners and qualifiers of each round. We look forward to hosting the Bronze Interclub days in the coming weeks. The Scratch Interclub was held at my home club, Haydock Park, on Sunday 6th June. The Scratch Interclub winners were Royal Birkdale who retained the shield from last year, with Formby Ladies’ coming 2nd. Congratulations, and well played. Thank you to our business manager Stephen Nicholson, and our Ladies’ Secretary Julie Pyke for all your support in preparation for the event. Also, I would like to thank all the volunteers from the venues that have hosted these events. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for marshalling, ball spotting, and having markers available all day.
The Scott Leggatt qualifiers are in full flow, with more golf played in the sunshine at Dean Wood, Denton, and Longridge. Again, congratulations to all the winners and qualifiers.
The County Championship was held at Manchester GC (Hopwood), and what a fabulous 3 days it was! Great golf was played over the 3 day event, and the weather was amazing. Thank you to Manchester GC, and David Marsh the General Manager for all his support, and a big thank you to Matt the head greenkeeper and his team for giving us the course in superb condition, and the time you spent with us leading up to the Championship in preparation. Also, the catering team, who fed us morning, noon and night. Everything was delicious. And last but definitely not least is a big thank you to the Lancashire divisional representatives, Sheila Antrobus, and Pam Ellis for all their hard work, which made the Championship run like clockwork, alongside the Lancashire Secretary.
We had two very good finals, with 12 year old Grace Gallagher beating Vanessa Barrow on the 18th hole in flight 2. Well done to Grace.
And what a fabulous final it was between Lauren Green and Kirsty Field. Well done to Lauren Green on becoming our Lancashire Ladies’ Champion 2021.
The team has now been selected for County Match Week, to be held at Foxton Hall with the first match against Yorkshire on Monday 28th June, and is as follows in alphabetical order:
We’re going to have a great week, with a great team…
Good Luck girls. Let’s bring that trophy home!
Take care, stay safe, and have fun out on the fairways.
