BLCGS Match v Oxfordshire Lady Captains Association (OLCA)Tuesday 4th June 2024

Our first home fixture was played at my home club, Donnington Grove, against OLCA. We were lucky with the weather which remained mostly dry and the course was in great condition with at long last some good roll on the ball.

All the games were played in a very friendly spirit, and everyone enjoyed the challenge of a championship course despite it being perceived by some as ‘long’. Every Berkshire pair had at least one player who was very familiar with the course and this ‘home’ advantage told as Berkshire won the match by 6 games to 2.

An undoubted highlight was a hole in 1 on the par 3 – 7th for Helen Lake (DG’s current Lady Captain)!

Thank you to everyone who played.
