We have not been able to enjoy competitive County golf for most of this year, but many of us have had time to reflect and to realise how lucky we are to live in Suffolk where we have been relatively pandemic free and where we have been able to play golf in some beautiful places. Despite the necessary precautions getting back out on the golf course has been soothing to the soul.
Suffolk Golf Clubs have done well in the pandemic, adhering to the government rules, adopting play safe, keep safe guidance from England Golf. Golfing enthusiasts should be rightly proud of the way they have adapted and behaved in difficult circumstances.
The game is now going through a renaissance as a result of people staying at home, having more time, wanting an outdoor activity and perhaps returning to the game they once loved and now have an urge to play again. Membership is very much on the up at all Golf Clubs.
Suffolk Ladies has much to look forward to with new young talented players coming through. Andrew Robinson has joined us as our new coach, together with his assistant, Sam Forgan, and they are developing training programmes for Juniors, Second Team and First Team.
Plans are in place for us all to enjoy competitive County golf next year. We certainly hope that we will be able to carry them through.
This message comes with very best wishes from all of us on the Governing Body of Suffolk Ladies for a happy Christmas and a peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Suffolk’s aims have always been to promote the game within its borders, with particular reference to the female half of the population of all ages and at all standards of play.
Because talent is so varied and the handicapping system happily allows people of varying levels of expertise to take each other on in keen competition, enjoyment is the key and the spirit in which Suffolk players take to the fairways, their adherence to the rules of the game and their consideration for others on and off the golf course has always been important. Excellence is prized, but reaching individual potential whatever that may be is perhaps even more highly valued.
With that thought in mind, this website is dedicated to the whole membership and it is hoped that everyone who belongs to the Suffolk Ladies County Golf Association, from the very youngest to the most elderly still happily engaged in the game, will feel a sense of ownership and help it to become a source of interest for us all by providing news, views and pictures via the contact link.
