Patsy Rochester 2024 Captain 


Welcome to all new, returning members of the Association, President Sarah Arrowsmith and Vice-Captain Julie Wheeldon. We start 2024 not only with a new name but also new colours.

At the AGM held in October 2023 it was agreed to change the name from the Yorkshire Veteran Ladies' Golf Association (YVLGA) to the Yorkshire Senior Ladies' Golf Association.

Our new colours will be navy trousers/skirts/shorts/jumpers with a white polo shirt. It was becoming very difficult to source green jumpers, so the Committee decided that we should adopt a colour that was easier to find.

We are also developing a new website and will keep you informed when this is up and running.

Competitions will be held at clubs around Yorkshire and we look forward to welcoming you to these events. Please see the Competitions page for more details.

This year we have two 'home' Richardson Trophy matches against Durham and Northumberland at Oakdale Golf Club and three 'away' matches against Cheshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. We would welcome your support at these matches. Please see The First Team & Richardson Trophy link for more details.

Gina White, Competition Secretary for any questions about Compettitions: gmwsix0@gmail.com 

Alison Hughes Hon.Secretary for any other issues: alihughes2020@icloud.com

Thank you for your support
