YVLGA 2nd Team vs YLCGA Mid-Ams - Saturday October 2nd

 On a cold, windy and wet day 20 ladies went out and played at Richmond (Yorks).  Amazingly, all of them remained cheerful, and the match was played in very good spirit.  Sadly, the 2nd Team were beaten 4/1 by a really competitive Yorkshire Mid-Ams side - including one of our own 1st team players, Heather Butcher!

Thanks to Maggie Katz and Dawn Clegg, YLCGA, and Karen, our Captain, for coming out and supporting in the weather - always a lot worse when you are just standing it has to be said.  Also, many thanks to all at Richmond for presenting the course so well and looking after us, the nice warm dining room and hot food after the game were much appreciated.

YVLGA 2nd team v Derbyshire at Rotherham GC - Thursday 29th July



On a blustery but dry day at Rotherham GC, 14 ladies tee'd up against Derbyshire on Thursday 29th July. In what was a very friendly but competitive match, our ladies came good & won the day 4.5 - 2.5.

Thanks to everyone at Rotherham GC who looked after us brilliantly and the Derbyshire ladies were very appreciative of the fact that they had not been asked to travel to Richmond!!

Many thanks to everyone who played in our 2nd team.

YVLGA 1st team v YLCGA Mid  Ams at Oakdale GC - Sunday 18th April


After the long days of lockdown, it was wonderful to get the season underway with our first fixture against the Mid Ams. Conditions were excellent & the golf matched the same standard. With one of the Mid Ams players being unable to play at the last minute, our competition secretary Patsy Rochester stepped in to help & ending up posting a point for the opposition! Thanks to President Ros Lumb & Vice Captain Penny Holroyd who helped everything run smoothly & the YLCGA Captain Maggie Katz & YLCGA President Anne McMullen for supporting the day. After a closely fought fixture, the match was halved & felt like a fitting result after the difficult year we've all been through.

1st AUGUST 2019

                                                                            Yorkshire 2nd Team

                                                                                 Both Teams                                  

Heavy rain had shut the South Chesterfield course the day before the scheduled match & there was some doubt as to whether the fixture would be fulfilled. With everyone on standby, waiting for my early morning email before setting out, it was a tense morning! Thankfully the confirmation came from Derbyshire that the course was now open, even though all bunkers were GUR, & the troops were clear to travel!

The team was:
Anne Taylor & Jackie Starkie
Gill Travis & Penny Baxter
Julia Smith & Melody Svenson
Karen Leake & Sue Smith
Patsy Rochester & Elaine Pearson
Joyce Slater & Lynda Ireland
Cathy Riley & Sam Harben

With all 7 pairs giving shots (high numbers in some cases), I am delighted & proud to report a halved match. No matches were won or lost before the 16th hole so it was a close run thing.

Thank you to all the team for your patience & support today.

SUNDAY 14th APRIL 2019

On a cold and frosty morning the YVLGA 1st Team met at Wetherby Golf Club to play our annual match against the YLCGA 2nd Team. 
Our warm up today was a very welcome bacon bap and a hot drink. 
The weather didn’t get any better and there was a bitter wind blowing, making it very difficult for the players, but it didn’t deter them and there was some brilliant golf played by both teams.  Congratulations to the Yorkshire 2nd Team who went on to win by 3 matches to 1. 
My thanks to YLCGA Vice Captain Maggie Katz for being a great host, Wetherby Golf Club for their hospitality and it was also lovely to see the YLCGA Captain Heather Muir there today.
