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.

SUNDAY 24th MARCH 2019


The two teams met at Huddersfield Golf Club for our annual pre season friendly match. The sky was blue and the sun was shining, and the matches began.  
However, all too soon the weather turned and it was bitterly cold with the wind picking up, although everyone was freezing the golf was red hot!  All the matches were played keenly and in great spirit, both teams playing excellent golf in the extremely tough conditions. My congratulations goes to our team with a fantastic win of 4.5 to 0.5, the best way to start the season. I am one proud Captain!
Huddersfield is in excellent condition, holding up well from the wet weather in the last few weeks. 
I would like to thank:-
The Greens Staff
Matt and his catering and bar staff for looking after us so well all day, and many thanks for suggesting the steak pie and chips, much appreciated after enduring the cold weather.
Brenda Parker for her lovely white rose flower arrangements for the dining tables. 
Alex, our Professional, for her support and help.
Supporters, including our President Jo, Vice Captain Karen and Treasurer Helen.
Yorkshire Captain Heather Muir for coming to join us
Dawn and her Mid Ams Team for a most enjoyable day
But most of all the Yorkshire Vets team, what more can I say, you were all absolutely brilliant. 
A great start to our season.
