Mr Captain’s 5 Club Challenge – Sunday 9th September 2018

An update on my “5 club challenge”, raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. Not quite on the same scale as Ben Fogle’s “Everest Challenge”, although Monday morning, my leg’s say otherwise!
I set off from Woodsome around 07.45 with my wife Janet, arriving at Huddersfield GC around 09.10, where Madam Captain and I played the 13th guided by Club Captain Brad Tupman. I was joined by Garry Blakeley on the stage to Outlane GC via the Kirklees Way, arriving just after 11.00, where Madam Captain and I both made a 5 down the 1st.
Next a little amble across the Colne Valley to Crosland Heath GC, again supported by Janet, arriving around 12.30, where Madam Captain and I played up the tough 4th. I was then joined by Charles Haygarth for the yomp round Crosland Edge to Meltham GC, arriving just before 14.00. We were met by Club Captain Mark Bailey who provided a wonderful lunch for all.
Off down the 1st Madam Captain and I went (I made par!). Next the long stretch via Wood Nook, Magdale, Castle Hill back to Woodsome, accompanied by Ange Haygarth, Janet, daughter Sophie & Fitness Coach Josh Taylor. We arrived at Woodsome around 16.30, where a few members witnessed Madam Captain and I play the 18th.
Total walking distance including golf 25.4 miles, for you “steppers”, that is a little over 55,000 steps!
A big thank you to Madam Captain for keeping us all replenished with food and water via the “support vehicle”, my fellow walkers and all members for their generous donations made so far.  To date the challenge has raised over £1000. Any further donations would be greatly received.

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.

Sarah Arrowsmith

YVLGA Captain.
