2021 President's Day Held at Belton Park GC

Finally, we were able to host an event and what a pleasure it was. Fifty-six ladies from seventeen clubs met at Belton Park Golf Club one year on from our original booking. The committee were all involved with setting up for the day with everyone working towards the same goal to make it a good day out for all. The players enjoyed a tea or coffee with a bacon cob on arrival.

Many thanks to all those involved in running the event and to Belton Park for making us so welcome and hosting the day with efficiency and friendliness.

There was a two tee start with President Helen Buckingham seeing the players off from the first tee and immediate Past President Glenda Yeldham from the tenth tee. Glenda and Helen shared the day as Glenda had made the original booking for this venue but had missed out on hosting the event during 2020 due to the Coronavirus.

The AMAM, which was drawn from entered pairs to make a four, took place in dry, overcast weather and the challenging course played long, with fast greens. The players were watched by the deer which roam freely on the course.

The prize giving followed a delicious buffet (which was served to each table) and choice of dessert. 

The three winning teams on the day were:

First Place and Winners of the President's Quaich's

Helena Woodward and Sandra Baum of Hinckley                             80 points

Sue Fletcher and Sally Hollis of Lutterworth  

2nd Place

Elaine Wesley and Pat Sutton of Glen Gorse                                      79 points

Leona Harris of Cosby and Loraine Washington of Scraptoft

3rd Place

Kim Griffin and Christine Walker of Beedles Lake                              76 points

Bubbles Emmett and Liz Toney of Lutterworth

Thank you to the all the ladies who played at Belton Park and we hope that you enjoyed your day.

The abiding memory of the day was of happy smiling ladies enjoying each other’s company and being able to take part in an event within the Covid restrictions.

We hope that our plans for the rest of the season are also able to go ahead.

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
