golfers in the Island. There are currently over 600 of us affiliated to the six golf clubs in Jersey, and although each club organises golf and social events for its members, the JLGA do this at an island level.

In the last twelve years the association has continuously moved forward and 2012 was no exception. Our first venture into the unknown in 2012 was the creation of our own web site – visit our site and your eyes will be opened by the extent of our activities. A little word of advice, if you use a search engine, do not just type in JLGA or you will get the Junior Louisiana Goat Association!


The Jersey Match Play Championships is our premier individual event and is sponsored by Jersey Pearl. With the competition divided into three divisions and played at La Moye, over 70 players took part last year. The Division 1 Championship Trophy has seen many winners since 1937 but in

2012 we had a new name on the trophy, Mrs Virginia Austin- Walker.


The next major individual event is the Jersey Stroke Play Championships for ladies with handicaps of 12 and below. Sponsored by Chatsworth Property Services, this is a chance for the best players on the island to battle it out over two days playing 54 holes. Last year there was a particularly close finish, with only three shots separating the top three players. Played at Les Mielles this was not for the faint hearted and this proved to be the case for defending Champion, Jenny Deeley from La Moye who clawed back a 6 stroke overnight deficit to win by just one stroke from Sue Evans on her home course.


Not all lady golfers want to play in our major championships, but they do like competitive golf and the JLGA are very aware of this.


We organise a great competition over nine holes which runs throughout the winter months on all courses on the island and often ladies use this as an excuse


to get together for social golf with lunch or tea afterwards.


The largest event organised by the JLGA is the Seniors League. Last year 114 ladies took part in this event. The competition is a team event with ladies playing for their own clubs. Many ladies of a certain age are not picked to play for their clubs in the inter club matches either because of age or perhaps their handicap is too high, so, this is a chance for them to represent their club. The Seniors League is played from April to September at each of the six courses and clubs are encouraged to pick different players each month. A light supper afterwards makes this quite a social event although inter club rivalry is always high and everyone is striving for their club and hoping to win the Seniors League Trophy at the end of the season. The JLGA like to think that they run this event; however, in reality, the senior ladies do it so well that we almost leave them to it!


As with all sports, fundraising is an issue. The JLGA is no exception and we need funding
