Competition Info – Current Fixture List & Juniors

2020 Fixture List – UPDATE 27th August, 2020

It is with regret that we have decided that we will cancel the Gray Cup which was to have been held on Sunday 4th October by kind permission of Portpatrick and Dunskey.

The AGM which was to have followed the Gray Cup will now be held via ZOOM at 6pm that day. Details on how this will happen will be forwarded to each of the Club Representatives
.

2020 Fixture List   –   UPDATE 29th June, 2020

As life slowly starts to return to a semblance of normality we hope you are enjoying being back on the course and playing some golf. We wanted to update you on the remaining two fixtures on the 2020 card in the light of the updated COVID information.

The Tennant Cup at St Medans Golf Club was to have been held on Sunday 2nd August and has also been sadly cancelled.

The Gray Cup and AGM at Portpatrick & Dunskey Golf Club on Sunday 4th October will go ahead as planned. This will be our only event for 2020 so we hope to see as many of you as possible on the day. Signing up sheets will be available in August for this.

We have also decided not to collect Membership Fees for 2020, the few of you who have paid your subs will be given the option to either have your money back or we will roll it over for 2021 when we hope to have a full fixtures list, mostly at the venues which were to have hosted us in 2020.

Further updates will follow, so keep an eye on these and we look forward to seeing you all in October. In the meantime stay safe and enjoy your golf.

2020 Fixture List   –   UPDATE 15TH APRIL, 2020

Scottish Golf recently took the decision to cancel ALL their events and performance programmes for the remainder of the 2020 season including the Helen Holm, County Finals and Commonwealth Spoons Finals.
The County Jamboree which was to have been held at Minto Golf Club on the weekend of the 20th-22nd June has been cancelled for 2020.  A decision has been made to host next year’s Jamboree at Minto Golf Club from the 19th-21st June 2021.  The Team Practice day on Sunday 31st May has also been cancelled.
The health and well-being of our members is our main priority at this time. As a result of the ongoing restrictions and the uncertainty that surrounds us all we have decided to cancel this year’s County Championship and Rennie Salver which was due to be played on Sunday 24th May at Southerness and also the Commonwealth Spoons qualifying competition on Sunday the 19th July at Kirkcudbright. 
We hope the remaining two fixtures, the Tenant Cup TriAm on the 2nd August at St Medans and the Closing day Greensomes at Portpatrick on the 4th October will go ahead as planned but should there be any change we will advise you all.
We hope you are all keeping well and safe and that we can soon return to our fairways.  In the meantime “Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”.

19th March, 2020
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and recent Government advice to avoid all non-essential social contact and all unnecessary travel as well as to avoid pub, clubs and social venues, we have made the sad decision to postpone the Opening AM-AM meeting at Stranraer Golf Club on Sunday 26th April.  The health and wellbeing of all our members is of paramount importance to us.
 
We shall continue to monitor the advice being given by Scottish Golf and the Government and in due course will make a decision about The Championship & Rennie Salver at Southerness in May and other future events.  Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and the Website for further updates.
 
Scottish Golf have continued to highlight the health benefits of golf as a sport that allows players to exercise outdoor in the fresh air where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is low.  Most of our golf courses do in fact remain open but with limited if any club house facilities.  Clearly this affects our ability to hold Galloway Ladies Events across the region but should not stop many of you from playing on your own courses in accordance with your Golf Club’s protocols.
 
We are sorry not to be seeing everyone in a few weeks time.  We hope it will be possible to rearrange the AM-AM Event for later in the season.
 
Stay safe everyone.
