                                                  Championship at Crosland Heath Golf Club 8 - 10 May 2017

The 2017 YVLGA Championship Qualifying round began at 9.30am in somewhat wintery, cold and windy conditions.
The wind remained for most of the day making playing conditions very challenging. There were 86 entries for the Championship and on the day 82 ladies played. Scores were very reflective of the difficult playing conditions. The course as usual was presented in superb condition for the time of year and recent weather.

Many thanks to Gill Travis (Captain), Penny Holroyd (Comp Secretary), Sarah Arrowsmith (Vice Captain) and Christine Hope (Committee Member) for manning the desk, and to Rosie Atkin (Secretary) for helping out selling Raffle tickets. Gill provided a lovely 'White Rose of Yorkshire' flower arrangement for the prize presentation table. The Captain presented the Qualifying Round Best Nett and Gross prizes and then presented the ladies with the 16 Best Gross qualifying scorers with engraved tumblers. The match play draw was announced by the Competition Secretary for the Tuesday morning

MATCH PLAY DETAILS

The first round of the match play knock-out was played on Day 2/Tuesday morning in much better conditions, and although cool it was much calmer and almost Spring like. The matches provided some excellent and interesting golf to watch.
The quarter-finals in the afternoon were played in warm sunshine and little wind; quite unusual for Crosland Heath!
All 4 matches were tight and keenly fought. On Wednesday morning the 4 semi-finalists arrived to play in almost summer conditions with a clear blue sky, again with virtually no wind. In the afternoon, the final was played in glorious sunshine which the spectators fully appreciated whilst watching some excellent golf.
