The Association was founded in 1911 by a few golf clubs who thought it would help to form a county golf association to act as a central authority for determining questions which may arise – and to promote the welfare and interests of the ladies’ amateur game in Dorset. This remains as true today as it did then, with the main objective being the promotion of the amateur game and the maintenance of the traditions and rules of the game, as defined by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. This does not cover everything the County Association does, but we hope it helps you understand that we are here for club golfers at all levels

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Tessa passed away two weeks ago in New York. Tessa’s son Max Lyons contacted us, having googled his mother’s maiden name and found the report in the Dorset Echo.
The R&A had been trying to track down Tessa who was a member of Came Down GC in the 1950s and was a British girl’s Champion in 1958, to invite her to a luncheon to celebrate the centenary year of the competition.
Wishing All Dorset
A great year of golfing in 2019
