We run three 4BBB meetings, one Individual meeting and a Mixed Invitation. Our match fixtures are played against Berkshire, Sussex, Hampshire and Kent. Players of all abilities are encouraged to play. This a chance to play with and against other Lady Captains on great courses, a fun experience after all the work as Lady Captain of your club.
Membership is open to anyone who has been the Lady Captain of a Surrey Golf Club and we hope that existing members will encourage other past Lady Captains in their Club to join our active and friendly Society.
Latest news from the Captain
Our Captain 2023-2024 Pat McNeil
|I should like to welcome all members to the 59th year of the Society. The year started well with our AGM on 22nd March, 130 ladies attended from some 39 Clubs; we of course would always love to see more Clubs represented. Next year is our Diamond Anniversary and we are planning a special AGM Celebration…..the date will be published a soon as possible.
Back to 2023, we have 5 meetings scheduled for the year plus 4 Inter-County Matches. In selecting the venues for our meetings I have tried to mix the courses throughout the County, including Clubs not visited recently by the Society.
Our 1st event is the Golden Jubilee Claret Jug – a singles competition on 27th April at the New Zealand Club; this course needs little introduction and I know players will delight in the challenge.
The Spring Meeting – 4BBB event sees us visit Purley Downs on 4th May – This is a lovely course and the Club are delighted to host our society. There are still places available.
Bletchingley is the venue for our Summer Meeting on 23rd June another 4BBB. I think this might be our 1st visit to this course and I’m sure it’s one to enjoy. Again there are still spaces available for this meeting; please do check your diaries maybe you can make the day.
Puttenham opens its doors to us for our 4BBB Autumn Meeting on 28th September – another course not recently featured in our programme. We would welcome more entries.
Tandridge is the setting for the Mixed Invitation – a fine course that never fails to challenge and the off-course hospitality is second to none.
Please can I encourage maximum support for all the meetings, we always hope for a full field and the selected Clubs this year are only too happy to entertain the Society.
Inter-County matches; we are hosting Hampshire and Kent this year at my Club Chipstead and we travel ‘away’ to Dale Hill to play Sussex. Berkshire after a necessary rearrangement following the closure of Winter Hill CG has now invited us to Temple Golf Club on the 11th May. Everyone is most welcome to play in any of the matches, please don’t hesitate to apply; full details can be found in your Society Handbook or on the Website.
In closing I should like to mention my chosen Charity for 2023, The Children’s Trust for children with brain injury; their National Specialist Centre is based at Tadworth in Surrey. I supported the ‘Trust’ during my Club Captain year and I welcome the opportunity to raise a little money for them once again. We will of course still be supporting our traditional charities; namely Surrey County Junior Girls and Battleback.
I very much look forward to meeting as many Society Members as possible during the year; in the meantime I wish you all good health, continued friendships and a great season of golf.
