Update from County Captain

Update from County Captain

Today the County Team should have been at Dudsbury GC in Dorset for the beginning of the South West Inter-Counties Matches.This year was to have been a new shortened format with the matches condensed into 2 1/2 days rather than 5. We would have been aiming to build on last year’s third place finish. However, as this event has been cancelled, along with match weeks in all the other regions, England Golf decided to open National Finals to any county which wished to send a team to a 5 day event in Lincolnshire in September.After consultation with the squad, Cornwall decided not to participate in this event. Instead we will look forward to next year’s SW Inter- Counties at Bristol and Clifton GC.In the meantime I know some clubs are starting to play competitions again, others maybe not yet, but I hope most of you are managing to get back

CLCGA Competitions Cancelled Until July 27th

CLCGA Competitions Cancelled Until July 27th

Following the announcement by England Golf that they have extended their initial blackout of events until 27th July, we have regretfully had to cancel both the Baron Rose Bowl due to be played at St Enodoc on 10th June and the Inter Club Handicap Shield due to be played at Launceston on 17th June. The Gammon Trophy, which is scheduled to start within this blackout period, will be reviewed in the coming weeks to see if it might be possible to reschedule the matches for later in the season. Of course we don’t know at this stage if there will be any season at all, and if there is, if we could feasibly condense four rounds of the Gammon Trophy into the time available to us. In the meantime the first two rounds, due to take place on 7th June and 12th July will not take place on those dates. I hope you are all staying safe and for those

CLCGA Spring Meetings Cancelled

CLCGA Spring Meetings Cancelled

Further to our cancellation of the County Mixed and County Championship, England Golf have advised postponement of all County and Regional events until at least 7th June. In addition to this they have now directed all Golf Courses to close until further notice. Therefore our two Spring Meetings, the Bronze at Merlin and Silver at Perranporth are added the list of cancellations. To be clear, we considered postponement rather than cancellation of County Champs, but felt that due to ongoing uncertainty as to when events may take place again, and the logistical challenge of finding a course who could host us for four days at short notice, postponement was not a realistic option. Believe me the decision was taken after a great deal of deliberation by your committee who have worked incredibly hard setting these events up and now are working hard again to ‘undo’ them.  If any players who have entered these competitions could email Mo Hammond their bank

Message from the County President and the CVLCGA President

Message from the  County President and the CVLCGA President

I would like to say how sorry I am at the rapidly changing events today.  These are unprecedented times and we must all take the greatest care of ourselves and our loved ones. I would like to thank Vicki, Jenny, Jacquie, Mo and Wendy for all the difficult decisions they have had to make over coming events, and the subsequent work the cancellations involve. The same applies to the Vets Section – Jean, Joyce, Liz, Gill and Kathy have all been involved in lengthy discussions and as disappointing as it is, I think they have all been the right decisions. Obviously no-one knows how long this is going on.  All I can say is please stay safe and do stay in touch with each other – friends at this time particularly are most important. Thank you Jill Simmons

Coronavirus Update re Championships and League

Coronavirus Update re Championships and League

With regret the CLCGA Committee have taken the decision to cancel this year’s County Championship which was due to take place at West Cornwall GC on 16th – 19th April. Once again the decision has not been taken lightly but in view of the current crisis over Coronavirus facing us all, and the latest government advice on avoiding social contact and unnecessary travelling we felt that cancellation was our only course of action. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible. In addition to this we are taking the decision to suspend league matches at the present time with the hope of reinstating them later in the season if possible. Vicki Stevenson County Captain

Vice Presidents Cup final

Vice Presidents Cup final

The final of the Vice Presidents Cup was played at Perranporth Golf Club on Wednesday 13th November. Due to the weather conditions the venue had to be changed at short notice, so thanks to Perranporth for allowing us the tee time. The final was between Cara Rowe from Killiow and Kath Biddle from St Enodoc. The was only one shot difference in the handicaps and the match was just as close. There was never more than one hole in it until Cara won the 16th to go 2up. A half on 17 gave Cara the match 2&1. The Trophy was presented by County Vice President Jill Simmons.
