Ethel Hartley Trophy AM AM - Hornsea Golf Club

 16th May 2022

With thunderstorms & heavy rain forecast, the day started fine but we watched the sky for signs of impending doom. While West Yorkshire was hammered by the predicted storms, East Yorkshire remained dry with temperatures reaching 20 degrees - feeling above that at times, around midday. Fortunately the good weather prevailed all day, meaning all competitors were able to complete their rounds without having to don the waterproofs.

35 teams from all over the county lined up & Cleckheaton GC followed up their winning form from the Spring meeting by winning the Ethel Hartley Trophy with 91 points - congratulations to Alison Kelly, Jackie Barraclough, Karen Tyler & Wendy Buckley.

 Spring Meeting - Cleckheaton & District Golf Club

18th April 2022 


The first event of the 2022 season kicked off in good weather at 9am on Easter Monday. 

For the first time, a second competition was run alongside the main draw for handicaps 17.0 - 40.0. As space was available, a separate event was held for handicap indexes up to 16.9 which attracted a further 11 entrants. Again, for the first time, a gross prize was awarded in each event.

The competition was held over 17 holes as the re-laid 12th tee was out of action as a result of the wet weather. 

Following heavy rain the previous week, the course was playing long & there were some weary faces at the end of proceedings!

Many thanks to the local starters, Janet Tedstone, Sue Armstead, Glennis Travis & Denise Nudds, & to the raffle ticket sellers, Jackie Barraclough & Margaret Brown.

Congratulations to all the prizewinners & thank you to all members who supported our first event.
