Yorkshire Veterans Ladies Golf Association Championship
Held at Woodsome Hall Golf Club on 1st to 3rd May 2018
After a very wet winter and very little golf played. The morning of the Championship arrived with bright sunshine and eagerly awaiting to play during the day were 97 ladies.
The 16 best gross scores were required to play in the match play over the next 2 days.
Also there was a Tri Am competition the next day for those players who did not qualify for the match play stages.
The winners of the TRI AM were Kate Morley (Crosland Heath) Sheila Selbie (Woodsome Hall) & Chris Lamont (Outlane) 73 and Runners up were Julia Smith & Chris Wright (both Rotherham & Diane Bennett (Scarcroft) 71.
On the morning of the match play we arrived at the course to very wet weather which cleared up and all matches went out on time. There were some very tight matches on the first day and the semi-finalists were Pat Wrightson, Sandra Paul (both Huddersfield) Alison Clark (Hull) & Carol Simpson (Malton & Norton).
The afternoon final was between Pat Wrightson & Carol Simpson, with some very good golf from both players and the winner was Pat Wrightson.
Congratulations to the winner: - Professor Pat Wrightson
Thank you to the members of Woodsome Hall for their support, especially Mr Captain Steve Armitage for being the Starter at the beginning on the 1st day and Mr Smith later. For the Vice President Mr Roger Ellis to come on the first day was very much appreciated.
Thank you all Woodsome Staff for all their work during the 3 days, the early starts ladies wanting food and drink at any time. I must not forget the Green keeping staff, who came in at the crack of dawn to prepare the course to be at its best.
