The 2022 season will start on Thursday 5 May 2022, the fixture list is available here. The league table re-arrangements needed after Silsden closed are now complete, we have four divisions of six clubs so all four divisions will start on the above date and the season will finish on the Thursday 7th July 2022. Promotion and relegation will revert to two up/two down once again.
Congratulations to The Manor for winning Division A, Baildon on winning Division B, Ben Rhydding on winning Division C and Clayton for winning Division D. It was a hard fought season played in true rabbits fashion.
A message from our secretary
Over the past few days I’ve been attempting to put together a framework for how the BDRGA events and matches should proceed in 2020. Every time I’ve felt that I had it right, the situation has changed – and never for the better.
Unfortunately we now have to conclude that the only sensible course of action is to suspend all competitions (including the League and Chippendale) until further notice. If circumstances change, we will be in touch with you.
Stay well: play golf if it’s safe for you to do so and we hope that you and your families remain healthy.
Very best wishes,
Our vice president, Mr Simon Hunt, has sadly informed the BDRGA that as of the end of March 2020 Silsden Golf Club will close. Silsden have always been staunch supporters of the Bradford Unions especially the BDRGA for which we have always been very grateful.
With the 2020 season not having been played this adjustment has been carried forward to 2021, Division D will consist of five clubs. At the end of this season two clubs will be relegated as usual but only one club will gain promotion from each division. This should balance the divisions for 2022 into four divisions of six clubs.
League fixtures for 2020 are now available here. The season starts on Thursday 30 April for Division A and Thursday 28 May for Divisions B, C and D.
Congratulations to South Bradford on winning Division A, Rawdon for winning Division B, Bradford Moor for winning Division C and Ben Rhydding for winning Division D. Congratulations also to Skipton, Shipley and East Bierley for gaining promotion from their respective divisions. A great thanks for everyone playing tonight despite the forecasted thunderstorms (deja vu with the final night of last season!) and for reporting the results so promptly. The fixtures for 2020 will be calculated shortly so keep visiting the website.
2019 league fixtures can now be downloaded here. Any amendments to fixtures, please contact the opposition and the league secretary as quickly as possible.
Congratulations to The Manor on winning Division A, South Bradford for winning Division B, Keighley for winning Division C and Bradford Moor for winning Division D. Congratulations also to Baildon, Skipton and Silsden for gaining promotion from their respective divisions.
The match being played at Bracken Ghyll was abandoned due to tonight’s thunder and lightning. No division C results will be published until ALL results are available. The teams have until Thursday 2nd August to complete their match.
Out of respect to their steward, Richard Halmshaw, whose funeral was today, South Bradford and Clayton are to play their league fixture on Friday 1st June.
