2022 Match v Derbyshire at Willesley Park GC
We Welcomed Derbyshire to Willesley Park on 10th June.
The course was in excellent condition and the food was delicious. Thank you to all at Willesley Park for making us so welcome and especially to Lady Captain Karen Burton for her help with the flag in very strong winds!
The Derbyshire team proved friendly but very strong opposition as they came out winners by 7 matches to 1.
Our next fixture is versus Northamptonshire at Kingsthorpe on Friday 8th July.
2022 Match v Nottinghamshire at Nottingham City GC
The match was played on Wednesday 25th May in blustery and showery weather, more like March than the end of May.
Nottingham City Golf Club was a new venue for most of us and the course became more challenging the farther you progressed.
The Nottinghamshire ladies were very welcoming and some close matches resulted in a 5 1/2 - 2 1/2 win for the host county.
Thank you to all the ladies who represented our association and to Vice President Pam for organising the day.
We look forward to our next match v Derbyshire at Willesley Park on 10th June.
2021 Match v SLRGC
The annual match versus SLRGC was held as usual at Beedles Lake Golf Club on 25th August, where twenty four ladies and twenty four men met for coffee and a bacon roll prior to venturing onto the course for pairs match play. The new World Handicapping System meant that to determine shots received, involved even more calculations than previous years. Thanks to Lynda Bramley for organising the event and her men's counterpart Gerry McIntyre for calculating the players' shots. Thanks also to Beedles Lake for serving up a delicious meal after play had concluded.
The matches were all played with a good atmosphere and enjoyable competitive matches. For only the second time in the match's history the Ladies were victorious eight to four, with seven wins and two halves. The last time was in 2013. It was a real privilege to lift the trophy on the team's behalf. Well done ladies!

A team consisted of two from each association with one lady from each association to count on each hole. Players to have a Handicap Index between 21 and 35.
Once again we were blessed with a sunny day and a course in excellent condition. We enjoyed coffee on arrival and lasagne afterwards.

2021 Match V Northamptonshire at Cosby GC
For our final inter county match we welcomed Northamptonshire Lady Captains to Cosby Golf Club.
This took place the day after Leicestershire and Rutland County Ladies secured runner up spot at County week. A truly inspirational performance by a young team. Buoyed by their result we played a close match with N’hants which ended in a 4-4 draw, leaving us with two draws and one loss from our inter county matches.
Once again good weather and a pleasant course played their part in making for an enjoyable day. The friendly competitive golf was followed by a tasty two course meal.
Thank you to the satff and members of Cosby Golf Club for making us so welcome and to the Leicestershire and Rutland ladies for representing our Association.
2021 Match v Derbyshire at Matlock
Matlock Golf Club hosted our second inter county match of the season and once again we were blessed with near perfect weather.
The long journey was worth it to play on such a beautiful course with stunning views round every corner. The course rewarded good course management with five par threes.
The result was a 7-1 win for Derbyshire, but our team fought well and had some close matches played in a good spirit.
Thanks to all the Leicestershire and Rutland past captains for playing.
