Conditions of Competition & Local Rules

Dear Members

Please note that our Conditions of Competition (including competition entry procedures) and Local Rules applying in all F.C.L.G.A. events have been updated and drawn together in one page which the Committee believes will be helpful to Members.

There are two additions which we would draw your attention to. The first relates to the obligation on any player using motorised transportation (normally a buggy or scooter) to ensure that there is appropriate insurance cover in place. The second relates to the introduction this year of a new Local Rule allowing a ball/ball marker on the green moved accidentally by the player (or partner or opponent or any of their caddies or equipment) to be replaced without penalty.

The Committee encourages Members to read the full text of the Conditions of Competition and Local Rules which can be found in the Conditions of Competition & Local Rules tab on the left side of the home page.

Junior News

Three of our junior members Evanna, Porscha and Anna  were at St. Andrews last weekend for winter training with the Scottish Golf Academy.

There was another golfer there too, Ladies European No. 1, Beth Allen! The girls played a few holes on the New Course with Beth, can you imagine the excitement of hearing Beth talk about her life as a professional golfer?

Experiences like this can only encourage junior girls to firstly enjoy the game but also to work hard and maximize their potential.

Who knows in years to come a FCLGA junior may follow in Beth's footsteps.
