(Northern Results go to Northern Vets)



Having driven from Richmond to Brough in early morning fog, I was very relieved to get to the course & find glorious sunshine - & that was how the day stayed. We had a full field of 80 pairs going out from 8.30am until 3.00pm - a long day for all, but everyone seemed to enjoy the course & the welcome provided by all at Brough Golf Course. Certainly Rosie Cleave (Committee Member), Alison Mowat (Committee Member) & I could not have been made more welcome by Ann (Lady Captain), & Julia (YVLGA Rep), Wes & all his staff.
A couple of things for all players to note for future competitions.....
..... Please remember if you're playing off 90% to check the stroke index/points received
..... When checking your card please make sure that the scores have been entered into the right column

Report by Penny Holroyd (YVLGA Competition Secretary)



The first YVLGA Competition of 2018 was held at Wheatley GC (Doncaster). 108 ladies of handicaps 17 and above played an Individual Stableford off full handicap, on what became a lovely day to play golf with a little breeze, some sunshine & not the cold that we've experienced of late. Unfortunately temporary greens were order of the day, with large bucket holes, but this didn't seem to deter many ladies as some fantastic scores were returned. Maryla Gledhill from Scarcroft came in with a marvellous score of 46 points to win the YVLGA Trophy. Ground conditions underfoot were good & there were many very favourable comments on what a delightful course Wheatley was & how much people had enjoyed playing it. The caterers continued all day to provide some delicious snacks & meals. The half way house offerings were prounounced excellent, especially the scones with jam & cream. This was the fist time the laptop had been used fully from start to finish for a competition, from the check in stage & application of handicaps, to the posting of cards into the system & the ultimate rolling results list. All went very smoothly & the latest results were always available to view. The YVLGA Captain Sarah Arrowsmith presented cheques to the Wheatley Ladies Captain for the course & gratuities. All the staff at Wheatley made us all feel most welcome. Many thanks to the Wheately Ladies for looking after the Raffle Sales so well, to the Starters for keeping the order of play going on the 1st tee & taking photos, to Penny Holroyd (Vets Comp Secretary), Helen Duckett (Vets Treasurer) & Karen Leake (Vets Registrar) for looking after the desk duties. There were 6 prize places with results as follows..... & as there are no prize presentations the YVLGA Trophy will be officially presented at the YVLGA AGM at Sand Moor GC on Monday 15th October 2018
