2021 Spring Meeting at Lanark is cancelled due to Covid Restrictions

Who would have thought that a year down the line, and we are still living under COVID restrictions!

Following a Committee Meeting on Monday 1st March 2021, here is an update on this year's Fixtures.
Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions we are all in at the moment and also the uncertainty of what the next steps are, we made the decision to cancel the Spring Meeting at Lanark GC on the 7th April. 

At the moment, the rest of the Fixtures remain in place.

Next on the Fixtures Card is the Summer Meeting & Championship Qualifier at Cathkin Braes GC on the 12th May followed by the Championship at Renfrew GC on the 18th & 20th May.
Followed by two team matches on the 27th May at Troon v Midlands (handicaps 10+) and 1st June at Douglas Park v East (handicaps < 9 ).

I would like to think these may get played in some sort of format. Can you please let Sandra or myself know if you are available to play in either of these matches.

All things are subject to COVID restrictions being eased and golf clubs allowed to have visitors.
We will keep you updated as soon as we get information, we will open up the entries for the Summer meeting on the website. Any information/updates will be emailed to all members and put on the website.

Take care, stay safe and hopefully we will all meet up soon on the golf course.

With the current government guidelines, the 2020 AGM will unfortunately not be taking place.

This year there were no fixtures, no team matches, therefore unfortunately no prizes to be given out and no reports on international matches to be read out, also no real issues have arisen throughout the year.

Here are all the reports and the fixtures which would ordinarily be read out at the AGM.

The Scottish Veteran Ladies' Golf Association (SVLGA)  had to cancel their team events but it’s never to soon to prepare for 2021. 

Their 2020 squad of players have started winter matches by visiting East Renfrewshire GC, home club of Gillian Kyle. 

West Vet Gillian was joined by other West Vets Donna Jackson and Liz Stewart 

Karen Ballantyne (SVLGA Captain) thanked  Gillian for arranging this and to the club for their hospitality and said."Looking at the scores, our players have been working hard on their games during the past few months."

The UK’s first ladies-only Pro-Am is back for the third year running, and this time it’s heading to The Irvine Golf Club in Ayrshire on Tuesday October 6.

We know many of you were disappointed not to be able to head to the AIG Women's Open at Royal Troon this weekend, but this Scottish jaunt could be the next best thing.

Designed to let you experience some light-hearted team competition (and also win some fabulous team and individual prizes), the teams consistent of three amateurs and one professional.

Don’t know a female pro who would be up for it?

Well never fear, the organisers will find someone suitable to partner you up with. All you need to provide is yourself and two pals.
