2020 INTER-CLUB COMPETITIONS
Over the past two months we have received a high level of correspondence and communication from club golfers and golf clubs themselves on the issue of inter-club golf this year. Advance planning during the COVID-19 pandemic for local, national and international competitions has been extremely challenging. At all times, our planning has been driven by complete adherence to public health measures in order to ensure the safety of all involved in the organisation and playing of competitive golf.
The Republic of Ireland's Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business published by the Irish Government on Friday 1st May, and the Northern Ireland Executive's Approach to Decision Making released on May 12th provide us with a solid basis to understand if it is possible to run some of our inter-club competitions in the remainder of the year. The timelines envisaged for relaxing public health measures are clearly not set in stone, and therefore it must be noted that any possibility of interclub competitions may alter as a consequence.
Our purpose in communicating with clubs at this stage is to understand the appetite of ladies committees to enter teams and support some or all of the competitions or if the preference is to draw a line under 2020 interclub competitions and resume in their entirety next year.
The ILGU Tournament Committee believe it may be possible to run the singles inter-club competitions by changing the terms of which we are used to. The conditions under which inter-club competitions could be run are broadly outlined as follows. Further detail will be provided once the response from clubs is collated.
Proposed conditions for 2020 inter-club competitions to occur (singles only)
This proposal is based on the ILGU being able to secure venues for District Inter-Club finals in October.
Club Entry Questionnaire
For the reasons stated above, we are asking all clubs to complete an entry questionnaire which has been circulated to all clubs. If your club has not received the survey link, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
ILGU CHAMPIONSHIPS UPDATE
ILGU National Championships up to 20th July have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak and will not be rescheduled.
Currently, it is proposed that the Irish Senior Women's Open Championship from 9-11 September at Tullamore be played alternatively as a "closed" championship due to restrictions on International travel. Details and format will be released shortly.
The ILGU District Executives are considering the rescheduling of championships currently listed as postponed and this revision will be published when known. It is likely that the format and terms of competition may be altered.
