COVID-19 - Competition Secretary's Message

Now that we have been playing social golf for over a month and clubs are starting to run competitions again (or at least thinking about it), DCLGA Exec met via Zoom to discuss which, if any, of the County competitions we should try to run in 2020. We are very mindful that clubhouses are still not fully open and the arrangements on the day for these games will need to be somewhat different to normal.

The consensus was that as the COVID-19 infection rate is reducing and it is likely that some of the social distancing rules will be relaxed, that we should try to run at least some of the DCLGA fixtures.

We decided that, subject to getting sufficient entries, the following competitions should be run and I’m currently trying to agree dates and venues which will be posted on the website as soon as possible:-






County Championship

Hartlepool Golf Club

20th-22nd July


Vine Trophy

Durham City Golf Club

Monday 10th August


Charity Competition

Hartlepool Golf Club

Beginning of September


Greener Cup (Bronze Championship)

South Shields Golf Club

Thursday 8th October



Once I have confirmation from the clubs involved I will put the agreed dates and venues on the fixture list section of the website along with entry forms and posters.
