2021 Spring Meeting at Rothley Park Cancelled
It is very disappointing but yet again due to the Coronavirus the Spring Meeting at Rothley Park has been cancelled. The three months lockdown and continued restrictions have resulted in this difficult decision being made.
On a more positive note, we are delighted to report that Rothley Park will now be the venue for our Autumn Meeting in 2022.
With restrictions scheduled to be lifted through the coming weeks we are hopeful that our future matches and events will be able to go ahead as planned.
We look forward to seeing many of you playing in our events planned through the remained of the year

We wish all our members, safe and happy golfing for 2021.
Merchandising - Now Available Through this Website
With the lockdown during 2020 we were not been able to host our usual events. Even during 2021 there may be restrictions to how we are able to show and try on products at meetings. To enable members to purchase our merchandising these may now be ordered through this website.
Go to the "About Us" and pull up the sub-menu for "Merchandising" and follow the link on this page to the Glenmuir site. The link shows the products available and details of the sizes directly from the Glenmuir site.
Payment for products is required prior to delivery. This can be by either BACS or by cheque made payable to L&RLCGA.
We hope that this facility will be of interest to our members.
Competition Entry Forms Available for 2021 Trophy Events
As a result of the January lockdown members may not receive their fixture cards in the usual timely manner (these are usually distributed at the AGM). Fixture cards will be sent to the club representatives but as golf clubs are closed this means that members cannot meet up to receive these.
Entry forms for our trophy events have been added to the website for members to print and complete. You will find these under the heading for Trophy Events/Entry Forms.
We are planning for members to print the forms from the website and send the completed entry together with a cheque to the person nominated to organise each competition. Cheques will not be cashed until we are sure that the event will be taking place. In the event that the competition is cancelled cheques will be destroyed or returned to the person who submitted the entry form.
We hope that golf will continue to be played through the year and that our events will take place but we are making these plans to assist our members.
Stay safe and we hope to see you all during this year
