West Bradford have fielded an ineligible player for five matches this season. The four victories have been changed to losses and therefore Division A tables and some of the League Matchplay Champion positions have been amended to take these new results into account.

The 2016 league season kicked off this evening despite the weather, only one match was badly affected, that of Branshaw v West Bradford. The course was under a covering of snow as the players were well into the back nine. Well done to all captains for reporting the results and well done to those players that took part, you are a hardy breed.
Sad news for golfers of Bradford, the secretary of the BDRGA has been reliably informed that Riddlesden golf club will be placed into liquidation from February 2016. The BDRGA committee have yet to meet but the consensus from the President and secretaries is that championships draws will remain as they are with the Riddlesden spots being left empty. Clubs due to play Riddlesden in the Chippendale trophy will get an automativ bye. Finally, clubs due to play Riddlesden in Division B of the BDRGA league will now get an extra two weeks off during the season.
