The draw for the County Championship is now available within the list of 2021 Fixtures here on the website. It is preceded by guidance for entrants on “Maintaining a Covid Safe Environment” while they are taking part in the competition.
As you know, our Championship at Meldrum House Golf Club starts the ALCGA season this coming Friday. I am wishing for some lovely weather to complement the excellent condition of my home course. Our secretary Karen and our selector Zibby were my guests there today. We all agreed that the course is looking fantastic, the greens are great and pretty fast for this time of year. We have our fingers crossed for sunshine, hopefully no rain, and maybe just a moderate breeze to keep the golfing challenge alive. There is no doubt that Meldrum House will present a good test of golf and an enjoyable experience for all. Because of the pandemic, there was no Championship last year, so the event is all the more exciting this year.
It is a pity that we are not having caddies, supporters and spectators but we must be cautious as we start to move out of lockdown and continue to adhere to ongoing Covid restrictions.
Undoubtedly, the Championship will be fiercely contested by the field of 56 members and some excellent golf will be on display. Whilst some players will aspire to be County Champion, others will have their sights on the Handicap Trophy. Good luck to all the competitors.
