County Captain's Message

My journey continued with two Junior events.

The first was the Junior Championship on a scorching Sunday in July at Garforth.
Even our older girls after 36 holes looked a bit ‘green round the gills’ by the end of the day. There is always a worthy winner and on this occasion it was Abigail Taylor from Headingley Golf Club.

My next event was the Junior Jamboree at Wynyard in Durham. There really is no other event like it. If you talk to our older County girls they always remember the Jamboree. We play 5 other Counties from the North and we take a team of 6 youngsters with varying handicaps from 18 to 30.
A good time was had by all, the only downside was that I had to live on kids’ food of burgers and pizzas!
This week saw 196 ladies from around the County play in the Alison Nicholas AmAm at Wetherby Golf Course. This charity supports girls in the County with contributions towards equipment and gives a limited number of bursaries for players attending university in the UK. This time, unusually, I was blessed with the weather. The magnificent raffle raised over £1350 for this charity.
Thank you to everyone that supported this event in whatever way.
