CHANGE OF DATE FOR SPRING MEETINGS
In light of the Government Announcement regarding the easing of lockdown restrictions, and in conjunction with the advice and directives from England Golf, the LVLGA Committee have agreed to delay the date for our two Spring Meetings, as they both fell before the 17th May 2021, when further lockdown easing is scheduled to take place. We felt that it would been difficult to ensure the safety of all the golfers, organisers and staff at the Golf Clubs, and as clubhouses would still have been closed, any food and drink would have been provided on a take-away basis only. By rescheduling we hope that we will be able to enjoy a near normal experience that all our competitors expect and look forward to.
The revised dates are as follows:
Spring Meeting for North and Central East Regions will now take place on MONDAY 24TH MAY 2021 at Ashby Decoy Golf Club.
Spring Meeting for South and Central West Regions will now take place on MONDAY 19TH JULY 2021 at Boston Golf Club
Corona Virus - Covid-19
It is with regret that we confirm that all LVLGA matches and fixtures are cancelled for 2020, and dates are being arranged for 2021.
Corona Virus - Covid-19
Following the latest government directives, and in line with recommendations from England Golf, we have sadly had to cancel the Spring Betterball Competitions, on Monday 27th April at Boston Golf Club and Monday 11th May at Ashby Decoy Golf Club. All cheques received will be destroyed.
As all the LVLGA matches are not until June, we have decided to defer making a decision to cancel/postpone until the end of April. If anyone wishes to be considered for the matches please contact Margaret Jacobs for A Team places and Hilary Morley for B Team places.
LVLGA - B Team Report
We had over 40 Ladies sign up for our 3 matches this year and I was pleased to give everybody one or two games.
Our first match was home at South Kyme G.C. against the Northants Ladies. The course was in very good condition but we didn’t do it justice, losing 6 ½ & 1 ½. The Fish & Chip meal afterwards was excellent.
The second match resulted in another defeat this time 5 & 3 (not quite so heavily). The venue was away at Longcliffe G.C. against Leicester and Rutland on an undulating very interesting course.
The salad meal rounded off a very pleasant day.
Success, at last, in our final game, home at Lincoln G.C (Torksey) against Nottinghamshire. We won by the narrowest of margins 4 ½ - 3 ½ on a course in good condition.
There was a fabulous Cold Buffett to follow which attracted praise from both teams.
Looking ahead to next year, the committee have decided that all sign-ups for matches should be completed by March 31st 2020. This will resolve the problem of players not signing up until the Spring Meeting (only 2 weeks before the first match).

LVLGA v LWGA
The last match for the LVLGA was played on what was a lovely day at Sleaford, once again LVLGA Captain Nicky Plumtree had managed to find a dry day between what have been some dreadful downpours.
Played with the usual good humour and golfing spirit with 4 of the matches going to the 18th as halved, the final match was the decider with The County Ladies winning giving a 4 & 3 win overall.
Thanks to Sleaford Golf Club for their hospitality and a very nice meal to finish the day
