County Captain's Message

Wow. What a Championship! Two weeks ago we were praying for rain for the golf courses (at night of course) Well, at Ilkley this weekend we certainly got it! On the Saturday, keeping the course open for the Championship was certainly a challenge. Sadly, the Tri Am was a casualty of all the rain.
After two years we have a new Yorkshire Champion, Nicola Slater from Lindrick. Nicola equalled the course record of a 69 on the Friday.
There were two exceptional semi-finals; Nicola played against her teammate Lily Hirst from Woodsome Hall, with the match finishing on the 18th; the other semi-final between Hannah Holden from Huddersfield and Mia Eales Smith from Lindrick was very close, also going to the 18th.
The final on Sunday afternoon with Nicola playing Hannah was also a tightly fought match ending on the 17th hole.
The winner of the Senior’s competition was Karen Jobling from Richmond; Amy Staveley from Ganton won the 18 hole competition with a very creditable 74.
It was a little strange with no spectators, but we accepted it was the best way of allowing the Championship to go ahead.
Thank you to Ilkley Golf Club for the sterling work where members of staff went the extra mile to keep the course playable.
It is now looking like our next events will be slightly more normal.
County Finals is also looking promising at Alnmouth at the end of June, and we are hoping to welcome supporters.
Enjoy your golf Ladies and hopefully we will soon be back in our club houses.
