Olive Edwards

DCLGA is sad to announce the passing of Olive Edwards at the grand age of 101 yrs.  Olive was a livetime member of Boldon Golf Club as well as being active in the County,Vets and Captains Society.  She was a past Vice-Captain of DCLGA but was unable to take on the Captain's post for family reason

Local Rule adopted.

DCLGA have adopted the Local Rule about 'Accidental movement of the ball on the putting green'.  This will become a Rule of Golf next year but England Golf are keen for all clubs and Counties to adopt it now.


Ladies, who are 'Life Style' members at their clubs, ARE entitled to play in all DCLGA Competitions and Matches as long as they have paid their Association membership fee,( currently £5.00).

Agreed at County Meeting 20/02/2017.
