Balfour & Houldsworth



Davenport Golf Club hosted its first ever Balfour and Houldsworth Competition.

Alas, the Competition was abandoned when the heavy rain made the course unplayble.

The B&H Committee would like to thank the professionals, staff and officials of Davenport Golf Club for all the work,

which they did on the day to try and keep the course open and for the services which they provided

to all  those who had entered the competition. 

Unfortunately, it was not possible to find another day later in the year, when the competition could be re-scheduled.

Many of those who had entered, asked for their times to be transferred to the 2024 GS Lancs.

The 2024 G S Lancs will be played at Crompton & Royton  Golf Club. 

The Tee-sheet is now open for those who would like to secure their preferred times.
