A very warm welcome to all Lady Captains & Secretaries both past and present, to our website, Sussex Lady Golf Captains. My name is Jane White and I am honoured to be the Association’s Captain for 2020.
SLC&SGA was formed in 1962 by Miss Joy Graham of Royal Ashdown Forest GC for FUN! Additional founder members were Miss Margaret Ackford from Bognor Regis, Mrs Jackson from Cooden Beach and Mrs Leonie Law from Goodwood. Joy Graham was Captain until her death in 1982. In May 1964 membership stood at 132 and currently stands at 450. The first match against another County was played at Liphook in 1963 v. Hampshire since when matches have been extended to include Berkshire, Kent and Surrey.
Membership is open to any lady who has been a Captain or Secretary of a Sussex Golf Club and we hope that existing members will encourage other past Lady Captains or Secretaries in their Club to join the Association.
We have our usual friendly but competitive programme of meetings and matches against nearby Counties and any member with a handicap high or low can participate. Please see Events & Entry Forms page for details, together with results.
I look forward to meeting many members during the course of the year and wish you all a very successful and enjoyable golfing year.

The Committee sincerely hope that you are coping with the lockdown and staying safe and well. The last eight weeks have been a difficult time for everybody and we realise that golf and socialising plays a big part in the physical and mental wellbeing of our members.
The Prime Minister stated on May 10th that social distancing is to remain in place for the foreseeable future suggesting, therefore, that it is very unlikely we would be allowed to congregate after our rounds of golf for our meals, etc. even if the golf could be played. For the SLC&SGA socialising is just as important as golf at our events and so the committee have decided to cancel all events and matches scheduled for June and July and including the match with Berkshire on 7th August.
Obviously the situation is changing all the time so we will monitor circumstances as they happen and make a further decision on 13th July regarding the remaining events in the calendar for this year.
In the meantime let’s sit back, enjoy the sunshine and watch our beautiful gardens grow!
