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

World Handicap System

World Handicap System

This is due to come in on 2nd November 2020. There is plenty of information available on various websites such as this https://www.englandgolf.org/handicaps-rules/whs-2020/ Much of the detail of processing handicaps will be handled by your club’s handicapping software as now. In future, your handicap will be based on the average of the best 8 of your last 20 submitted scores. Results from all 9 or18 hole individual competitions – strokeplay, stableford or par/bogey- should be submitted, preferably on the day of play. As now, scores from social/recreational play, that have been registered before going out to play, can also be submitted. At present courses are described by measures of PAR and Standard Scratch Score. Under the WHS these will be replaced by a Course rating and a Slope rating. Instead of your handicap respresenting the number of strokes you will receive, you will have to know your Handicap Index, including

Due to the weather conditions the venue had to be changed at short notice, so thanks to Perranporth for allowing us the tee time.
