Rosemary Barford

Captain 2021

A very warm welcome to all Lady Captains & Secretaries both past and present, to our website, Sussex Lady Golf Captains.  My name is Rosemary Barford and I am honoured to be the Association’s Captain for 2021.

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.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our events and matches next year. The entry forms are in the booklet and on the website.

In the meantime stay safe and well
