 Yorkshire 2nd Team v YLCGA Mid-Ams

1st October 2023 at Oakdale Golf Club, Harrogate


The YVLGA 2nd Team played against the YLCGA Mid-Ams on windy and wet day. The match was played in good spirts. The format was 4BBB scratch match play.  The Mid-ams were victorious on this occasion by three games to two. Thank you to all who played.

All the players and Officials enjoyed watching the final few holes of the Ryder Cup once the matches were finished.

Many thanks to Dawn Clegg (YLCGA Mid-ams Captain) & Gill Travis (YVLGA President) who acted as the starter for the day.

Thanks also to all the Catering and Bar staff for a lovely meal and to the greenkeeping team for preparing the course.



 Yorkshire 2nd Team v Derbyshire Seniors

26th July 2023 at Oakdale Golf Club, Harrogate

The YVLGA 2nd Team played Derbyshire Seniors in their annual match on a bright sunny day.

The format was 4BBB match play and all the Yorkshire pairs were giving shots to their opponents in keenly contested matches with a number going to the 18th green. Yorkshire had a sound win by five games to two games.

Thank you to Oakdale Golf Club for the courtesy of the course and to Mike Foster and his Greenkeeping staff for preparing the course so well, especially after the heavy rain at the weekend. The bar and catering staff looked after the teams both before and after the match enabling all to enjoy meeting new and old friends.

Thank you to Pat Wrightson (YVLGA Captain) for acting as the Starter for the day and to Marlene Dixon (YLCGA Vice Captain) for adding her support.

The players demonstrated a good standard of golf, with the YVLGA team winning all 5 matches. Thank you to our President, Gill Travis who officiated as Starter and Patsy Rochester, Vice-Captain our photographer. The matches were friendly and played in good spirits, with players enjoying the sunshine on their backs and less layers of clothing.

Sunday October 9th


The 2nd team took on the YLCGA Mid-Ams today at York Golf Club, Strensall.  On a bright sunny day, ideal for golf, the Mid-Ams won 3:2.  All the matches were closely fought with a good standard of golf.















On a warm but overcast day our 2nd Team played a 4BBB match  off handicap, against Derbyshire Seniors at Matlock Golf Club. An interesting but very hilly course with small greens and a number of blind shots, where local knowledge was advantageous. It was a closely fought match with 3 games going to the 18th green, sadly, the 2nd Team lost, Derbyshire winning  by 4 matches to 3.
The course was presented in fine condition and the team enjoyed an excellent meal following the match.
Thank you to all the players who took part in this match, a number of whom undertook lengthy journeys to reach Matlock Golf Club.

1st Team vs YCLGA 1st Team

On a sunny but cold day our 1st Team took on the Yorkshire 1st Team girls in a 4BBB match play event.  Sadly, the Vets were beaten, in all but one, of what were close matches.  Alison Tracey, Yorkshire Captain, Lisa Jones, 1st Team Coach, Maggie Katz, Sue Dennis and Fiona Wood, along with a fair few parents, were there to support the YCLGA Girls and it was lovely to see Karen Leake and Patsy Rochester as I did feel a little outnumbered!

Thank you very much ladies, hopefully you enjoyed your first visit to Richmond this year.
