HGU and HCLGA to merge in 2018
Last night (Monday 27 November) the resolutions to merge the amateur county bodies, the HGU for Men and the HCLGA for Ladies, into one incorporated merged body, 'Hertfordshire Golf Limited'. was passed by both existing bodies.
The HGU held an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) at Brookmans Park, while at the same time the HCLGA held their Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Aldwickbury Park.
At the HGU EGM 40 attendees representing 24 affiliated clubs voted on the two resolutions, whereas at the HCLGA AGM, where postal votes were allowed according to their constitution, they had already amassed over 200 votes from individuals cast prior to the meeting.
In both cases the vote was overwhelmingly in favour of merger and the new merged body will commence operations as of January 1st 2018. Hertfordshire will therefore become the 5th county in England to have a merged county body.
Watch this space for more details as they arise.
