The following statement has been released to all clubs:
The boards of Lancashire Union of Golf Clubs (LUGC) and Lancashire Ladies County Golf Association (LLCGA) have unanimously agreed to explore county unification. Both Boards view unification as a positive initiative and are being supported by England Golf.
A working party with representation from both Boards has been established and is considering the benefits of “one unified voice” for golf in the county prior to consultation with member clubs. Once completed, Lancashire would join the 9 counties who have already unified in England to date, becoming the largest and a role model for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity.
These discussions are at an early stage, but we feel it is important that this is an inclusive and collaborative process and welcome comments from affiliated clubs and all stakeholders. Communications should be directed to our respective secretaries.
