(Huddersfield GC)


NCVLGA Vice Captain 2020


 Results from Sligo  


Enjoying the local produce! 


Commiserations to the English team who were beaten into second place by Ireland on 'countback'. In a weather-affected contest over just 2 days instead of 3, only singles games were played on the second day - against Scotland in the morning & Ireland in the afternoon. With the two countries scoring the same points & halving their shortened match, Ireland's points of 12 for & 6 against just pipped England's record of 11 for & 7 against, meant they emerged as Champions.


The YVLGA congratulates Julie Wheeldon (Wakefield GC)
on being selected to represent England Senior Ladies


at the 



County Sligo, 1-3 October 2019

The R&A Womens Senior Home Internationals will be played at County Sligo from 1-3 October 2019. This world famous course in Rosses Point offers an excellent challenge.

The traditional links layout, redesigned by Harry Colt, utilises the natural contours of the dune-covered landscape and is situated in the picturesque seaside village of Rosses Point, just a short drive from Sligo town.

The R&A Womens Senior Home Internationsl match was first played in 2003
The Championship is an annual event played over 3 days featuring teams from
England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales

All go for Sligo – England Senior Ladies ready for Irish links test

England Senior Ladies’ captain Debbie Richards hopes her team can finish a glorious season on a high with another hard-fought win against Ireland.Richards has named a team of six for the challenge match in County Sligo between October 1-3.

Caroline Berry (Cheshire), Paula Carver (Sussex), Aileen Greenfield (Sussex), Lulu Housman (Middlesex), Helen Lowe (Leicestershire and Rutland), Jackie Foster (Hertfordshire) and Julie Wheeldon (Yorkshire) will represent England at County Sligo Golf Club at Rosses Point.

The contest is a repeat of the semi-final from this year’s European Senior Ladies’ Championship at BlackSeaRama in Bulgaria.

England prevailed with a 3.5 – 1.5 winning margin before going on to lift the trophy with victory in the final against Spain.

Richards knows only too well that Ireland’s ladies will be looking to redress the balance in this latest international clash but is confident that her team is capable of one final push.

“After winning gold at the Euros we go into the Ireland match on a real high”, confessed the captain.

“The fact that we beat Ireland in the semis should give the ladies the belief ahead of this trip and I’m sure will act an incentive for the Irish team.

“The Irish are a strong side. Bearing in mind the last result and the fact this is on their home soil, it will represent a really tough match to end our season.

“Playing links golf is also something for the team to get used to and with one practice round it’s never easy.

“But this is a fantastic group of ladies who have played so well this season on the course and got so well off it that I have total faith in them as a team.

“The Euros were so exciting, but to beat Ireland in Ireland would be amazing.

“We won three of our four singles against Ireland at the Euros which is a fantastic achievement and to go to Sligo and win this match would be a fitting finale to our 2019 campaign.”

Five of the six-strong team were present at the Euros – Housman is the only addition to the line-up.

All the England ladies head into the Ireland match on the back of excellent seasons.

Bromborough’s Berry won the English Senior Women’s Amateur Championship for a second time earlier this year at Enville Golf Club in Staffordshire.

Worthing’s Carver was runner-up to Berry in the English Senior Women’s Amateur and tied-ninth at the English Senior Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play.

Pyecombe’s Greenfield birdied the last two holes to win this year’s English Senior Women’s Stroke Play Championship at St Enodoc while Scraptoft golfer Lowe led the qualifiers at this year’s English Senior Women’s Championship.

Foster, from Bishops Stortford, finished second behind Greenfield in this year’s championship and also reached the semi-finals of this year English Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.

Wakefield’s Wheeldon was tied-third in the English Senior Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship and fifth in qualifying for the English Senior Women’s Amateur.

Experienced international Housman – playing out of Wyke Green – was tied third in the Senior Women’s strokeplay and top ten in the Order of Merit.
