All the West Of Scotland County Captains have announced to their members over the last couple of weeks the initial decisions with regards their County Championships and Inter-County Foursomes qualifiers.  

AYRSHIRE (24th March)
Since I last wrote to you the situation with the Coronavirus has got much worse and therefore it will probably come as no surprise to you that, it is with great disappointment and regret, the Committee and I have decided to cancel the County Championship in April and the Foursomes in May
We had hoped that it may have been possible to keep these competitions going by adhering to social distancing and not using club house facilities. However, following the Prime Ministers announcement yesterday and for the safety and well being of our members and their families this will not be possible. These are very sad and unprecedented times.
Being an optimist, hopefully we will all get back to our golf in June.
Thank you for your continued understanding.
Take care and stay safe.
Joanne Sharp - Ayrshire County Captain

D&A (19th March)
In the current situation it has been reluctantly decided to cancel/postpone the County Championship and the Intercounty Foursomes/Commonwealth Spoons (qualifying rounds). The final of the Winter Foursomes scheduled for 28th March has also been postponed until later in the year. The committee will keep the situation under review and further updates will be posted.
Jean Lietch - D&A Captain

LANARKSHIRE (24th March)
Due to the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus, the committee and I have regrettably decided to cancel our County Championship at Drumpellier from 27-29th April. With the current government advice there was no option but to do this. I will keep you informed in due course about other fixtures. It's a sad decision to make but we have to be mindful of everyone's health. 
Hopefully we will be back on the fairways soon. Take care everyone.
Fiona Norris - Lanarkshire County Captain

It's with a heavy heart that Vice Captain Donna (Jackson), Honorary President Pearl (Orr), the Committee and I have decided to postpone both the County Foursomes (at Elderslie GC on 27th April) and the County Championship (at Ranfurly Castle GC between 6 - 8th May) but we feel the health and well-being of our members has to be our priority.

If possible we will try and re-arrange both these events later in the season but, at the moment, we can give no guarantees.

Unfortunately, other competitions may also be affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic and its associated restrictions but we will keep you advised as we go along.

Sadly 2020 hasn't been kind to us so far, firstly with the horrendous wet weather and now the coronavirus but let's stay positive and hope we'll be back to normal real soon.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support.

Sandra Littlejohn RLCGA Captain
