COVID-19 Coronavirus: 24 March 2020

COVID-19 Coronavirus: 24 March 2020

On Saturday, the ALCGA Management Committee and officials notified cancellation of County events until the beginning of May. Yesterday we discussed our next steps.

Consequently, guided by the government announcement that everyone must stay at home except in exceptional circumstances, the introduction of a 12 week isolation period to shield the most vulnerable people, the closure of non-essential shops, facilities and services, and the possibility that the disease peak may not occur until May/June, we are now making the next difficult decision to cancel ALCGA events that are scheduled up until the end of June.

Consequently, the following events will be cancelled:

·       County Opens at Banchory on 14 May, Fraserburgh on 16 May, Westhill on 11 June and McDonald Ellon on 26 June

·       Watt Duffus Inter-Club Trophy at Newburgh-on-Ythan on 18 May.

If you have placed an entry for any of these competitions, the relevant club rep or Karen will be in touch with you.

At the moment, I am in touch with the Captain of Angus Ladies County Golf Association who is in charge of organising the Northern Division Jamboree from 13 to 15 June at Monifieth to find out what action is proposed with this inter-county event.

Always with the wellbeing of our community of members at heart, we are continuing to monitor advice and developments and will update you when there is any news.

Please take care and stay safe.

Captain, ALCGA
