History

Nottinghamshire County Ladies Golf Association was formed at a meeting held on December 5th, 1908. The main reason for this formation was to produce a County Team. By 1913 the Association consisted of 9 Clubs, Notts Ladies, Bulwell Forest, Newark, Radcliffe, Stanton, Bulwell Hall, Rushcliffe, Sherwood Forest, and Chilwell. By 1959 the number had risen to 15, by 1994 to 24. Currently there are 29 Affiliated Clubs.

Since the formation of the Association, we have had 19 Presidents and 9 Secretaries! The longest serving Presidents were Mrs John Player and the Duchess of Portland who both served consecutively for 21 years. This position is now held for a maximum of 3 years. The longest serving Secretary/Treasurer was Miss J A Bright from 1912-1950, followed by Mrs J H Payne from 1951-1986.

The Association presently run the County Championships and several other individual and team competitions during the summer. We also run an Interclub Foursomes knockout and inter-club League matches, at Scratch, Silver, and Bronze levels. Until 2007 we played County Matches against Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, and Leicestershire but in 2008, with the formation of EWGA, our region changed to become Midlands North, consisting of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, and Staffordshire. Our County Match Week changed to 5 days of competition with the winners going forward to the County Finals. In 2019, as a trial, the County Matches were played over 3 days (2 matches on each of days 1 and 2 and the final match on day 3) and this format has continued to date.

In 2008 the Association celebrated its centenary with a centenary lunch, a centenary match against Derbyshire and centenary events at our affiliated clubs. Details and photographs were published on our website at that time and these reports have now been archived into a document which you can view here.
