YVLGA v YLCGA 2nd Team @ Hessle GC

Sunday 20th May 2018

We arrived at Hessle G C on a glorious sunny summers day with a little breeze.

Both teams were totally different from last year. The YVLGA Ladies 1st Team were unable to play due to other commitments. The YLCGA 2nd Team Girls who played last year were either now in their 1st Team or were in the middle of Exams.
The competition were 4 matches played as 4BBB off Scratch.
It was a delight to see these girls hit the ball will so little effort but the ball went miles and nearly aways straight.
This did not deter our ladies and all the matches were tight and the last match going to the 18th.

The matches were as follows:-
(YVLGA names first)

Beth Norton & Rachael Seal lost to Angela Morris (Brough) & Heather Staniforth (Hallamshire) 3/2
Emma Mysicek & Jess Hosking Beat Jackie Barraclough (East Bierley) & Mary Pat Moore (Bingley) 3/2
Christina Rumbelow & Poppy Rudd Lost to Anne Taylor (Woodsome Hall) & Val Swales (Hallamshire) 3/2
Jodie Hunsworth & Amy Nowell was A/S to Fiona Wood (Ilkley) & Elaine MacGregor Wakefield) A/S

The match finished a win to YVLGA 2.5 YLCGA 1.5

The match followed with a meal afterwards
Well done to the YVLGA

 YVLGA v YLCGA Mid-Ams Team @ Woodsome Hall GC

Sunday 8th April 2018

Due to the adverse weather conditions prior to the match, much discussion took place whether we would be playing or not. Our Head Greenkeeper was always very positive and said of course we would be open on Sunday (as the stream across the 6th fairway was overflowing)

On a dull dry spring morning both teams arrives, to have Bacon Butties and tea or coffee before going out to play. It was ideal for golf as there was no wind and the temperature was just right. Wearing beige trousers was not a good idea and most players put their black waterproof trousers on

I would like to thank our President Jo Somers for coming to support our team and my Lady Captain Val Eastwood for her help on the day. Also it was nice to see the Yorkshire Captain Helen Lilley who came at the beginning and saw all the matches off before having to leave
