How to become a Member of C&A
Membership is open to any lady with a CONGU competition handicap who is a member of a Club affiliated to C&A. All you have to do is find your Club's C&A representative or Delegate and tell them you want to join. Names & subscriptions are usually collected around Christmas time but you can join throughout the year.
What does it cost?
Currently, just £6 plus a further £6 if you want a County Card. The County Card lets you play at any of the affiliated Clubs, three times per year, at very favourable rates. Most clubs only charge a gree fee of £10 for 18 holes, though some of the 'championship' courses have higher green fees.
What do you get for it?
You are entitled to play in C&A competitions, provided you are eligible (some comps have handicap limits). There are three main comps per year: the County Championships, usually held straight after Easter; the County Greensomes, normally held in August, and the Autumn Meeting, held during the first week in October. Other comps are held from time to time.
As a member, you may also be selected to play for the County team - a considerable honour!
Are there any restrictions on membership?
You can't be a member of C&A if you are already a member of another County Golf Association in Wales. (You can however join C&A if you belong to a County Golf Association in another country, eg. England!).
Junior Girls Programme
As a County we are committed to promoting girls' golf. Two of our affiliated Clubs - Nefyn & District GC, and North Wales GC - are recognised as Girls Golf Hubs by WalesGolf.
The position of Girls' Manager is currently vacant. If you are interested in taking over this role, please contact the Hon Sec Pam Macdonald by email, or get in touch with any member of the Committee.
We are also looking for a new Safeguarding Officer. This is not an onerous role. It would suit anyone with a background in eg teaching, law, social work or any job involving working with young people. A DBS certificate would be an advantage, though this can be obtained through C&A.
Junior girls' programme 2021
The girls programme for 2021 is now available and we are running county coaching sessions for girls of all levels, age 8-18! Click HERE to see the Girls Junior Programme for 2021 (V3).
How C&A is run
C&A was founded in 1924 and has a Constitution which is regularly updated to meet changes in the world of golf. The Association is run on a day-to-day basis by the Management Committee, made up of officials and ordinary committee members elected at the AGM.
The Management Committee is in turn controlled by a committee of Delegates (one from each affiliated club) which usually meets three times a year.
The Management Committee consists of the President, County Captain, Vice-Captain and Immediate Past Captain, the Hon Secretary & Hon Treasurer, the Girls' Manager and two representatives from among the members of the Association.
In addition to the Management Committee, there are two selectors (currently Sally Allan and Joan Parry) who assist the Captain in choosing the County team.
See the section below headed 'Important documents' for a link to the current Constitution & Regs in both Welsh and English.
