2020 Match v L&R Vets

This annual match is arranged with the higher handicap golfers in mind.

Two lady Captains and two lady Vets play in each team in an AM AM competition format with one captain and one Vet to score on each hole. This friendly format is popular with participants and provides a fun day out for everyone. 

The team selectors have to be quick to firm up their team as some players are members of both organisations. 

The L&RVLGA organise the event one year and the L&RLCGA organise the event the following year. The host organisation also provides the prizes on the day.  

Unfortunately, this event for 2020 was also cancelled due to the Coronavirus. The fixture has been rescheduled into July 2021 and will be held at Kirby Muxloe GC. 

2020 County Matches

The matches scheduled to be played against Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Northamptonshire were all cancelled due to the Coronavirus. Although golf was being played albeit with social distancing being observed, it was not possible to socialise and enjoy a meal as clubhouses and catering facilities were out of use throughout this period.

The fixtures have all been rescheduled into 2021 at Longcliffe, Matlock and Cosby.    

Meeting of Captains and Vice-Captains September 2019

30 Captains and Vice-Captains met at Charnwood Forest Golf Club for the 9 holes of golf and lunch. Two ladies unfortunately had to pull out the day before the event which enabled committee members Lyneve McLoughlin and Helen Buckingham to play and make up the 8th team.

The weather was not on our side as there was torrential rain which flooded the greens but due to excellent drainage it cleared extremely quickly. Despite this the ladies enjoyed the day. One lady’s club slipped from her hand and ended up in a tree and despite the help of the green keeper it had not been found by the time we left, however the lost club was retrieved at a later date. 

The winners on the day were Rachel East and Leona Harris of Cosby paired with Cathryn Hoyland and Loraine Washington of Scraptoft who scored 36 points in very testing conditions.

The AGM paperwork was reviewed and distributed at the meeting.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the day.

Glenda thanked the staff and members of Charnwood Forest golf club who had made everyone feel so welcome. She also thanked the committee members for their support and also thanked all the ladies who had played in such good spirits despite the weather.

Match v SLRGC September 2019

Once again we are very grateful to Beedles Lake for allowing us to play this match. The rules this year were; yellow tees for the gentlemen and red for the ladies who were given 3 course equalisation shots, before applying the 90% handicap allocation and the match was played off the ladies stroke index.

Although once again the men won most of the matches, these were very close with all but two matches finishing on 17th or 18th holes. The result was 3 to the ladies and 9 to the men. Many thanks were sent to the ladies who stepped in to play at the last minute.

There was a choice of menu of Seared Chicken in a Mushroom Sauce, Medallions of Pork served in a Pepper Sauce or Mediterranean Vegetable Wellington, all served with Roast Potatoes & Seasonal Vegetables. Desserts were Warm Chocolate Brownie & Ice Cream or Tropical Fruit Tartlet & Ice Cream. Everyone enjoyed their meal in very good company with spectacular views of the sun setting over the lake.

Thank you again to everyone who played.

Match v Northamptonshire 12th July 2019

This course Kettering was a first for most of the Leicestershire Ladies being very close to the A14 it was accessed by driving through a new housing estate. Luckily the ladies we played against knew the course as we would definitely have struggled to find the next tee. Also one par 3 we had to play over a very high hedge which completely blocked sight of the green.

The match was played in a very friendly atmosphere but unfortunately lost by Leicestershire 6½ to 1½. At one point during the match the wet gear came out but luckily not for long.

The meal was very welcome as most ladies had expected to be able to purchase a sandwich prior to commencement of play.

Match v L&R Vets 11th July 2019

This year Market Harborough GC kindly allowed us to host this fixture which is played as an AMAM and is for ladies with higher handicaps played with the Leicestershire & Rutland County Vets.

The course although rather hilly offers superb views of the countryside and looked in excellent condition. Due to heavy rain earlier in the week the teams played off full handicap, one County Vet and one Lady Captain to score on each hole. Luck was again with as the ladies played in dry warm conditions. The meal afterwards was a fish pie followed by lemon posset, deserts being a speciality of the chef this was delicious.

The scores were close. In 1st place Jane Linsley, Glen Gorse and Ann Parkin Cosby for Captains and Chris Brown, Ullesthorpe and Anne Freeman, Rothley Park for the Vets with 78 points, each received a bottle of wine.

In 2nd place Nicki Clarke, Forest Hill and Sally Hollis, Lutterworth for Captains and Myra Burrows, Market Harborough and Jacqueline Latham, Kibworth for the Vets with 77 points, each received a box of chocolates.
