About Sussex County Ladies Golf Association
SCLGA was initially created as Sussex County Ladies’ Golf Club and they held their first meeting in Lewes in 1900, with their six founding members Ashdown Forest, Bexhill, Crowborough, Hastings, Royal Eastbourne and Seaford. Today, there are 58 clubs in Sussex affiliated to the SCLGA, with nearly 3,800 members. The county colours of yellow and blue were adopted in the 1960's.
The Sussex County Championship was inaugurated in 1923, and all our County Champions have played inter-county matches for Sussex.
At the AGM of 4th November 2019, the members gave unanimous approval for the business of the Association to transfer from an unincorporated body (SCLGA) to a Limited Company (SCLGA Ltd).
Our AGM takes place every year on the first Monday in November at The Charmandean, Forest Road, Worthing, BN14 9HS. The 2023 AGM took place on Monday 5th November. Minutes are available here.
