CAPTAIN Carolyn Hall (Stocksfield)
PRESIDENT Fiona Southern (Bamburgh Castle)
VICE CAPTAIN Elaine Elliott (Whitley Bay)
I am delighted and also very honoured to be taking up the post of NCVLGA Captain for 2016.
This association strives to be a most friendly and welcoming group for all senior lady golfers and I hope that those of you who have already discovered this will encourage others to join our ranks, especially those who are ‘new’ vets. They will be assured of a warm welcome at our competitions and events.
If you require any further information about events or competitions each club has a Vets’ representative who would be able to help and the contact details of all Vets’ officers can be found on your membership card.
I am greatly looking forward to the year which promises to be as busy as ever with our usual range of competitions for all handicaps.
(These you will find listed elsewhere on the web site)
The Richardson Trophy team, which will be selected at the Silver Championship, (Stocksfield GC 3-5 May) will this year have three away fixtures v Lancashire, Cumbria and Cheshire and two home matches at Stocksfield on 23 June v Durham and on 14 July v Yorkshire.
Please come along if you can to support the team at these matches.
The Bronze Team will be selected at the Bronze Meeting (Prudhoe GC 9 May) and will play away v Durham at Bishop Auckland on 9 July and at home v Cumbria at Whitley Bay on 18 August.
In addition, 2016 sees Northumberland hosting the Northern Counties’ Championship at Alnmouth Golf Club, Foxton Hall on May 24-26 and we look forward to a good entry for the competition at this excellent venue. The Championship Dinner, at which we will be very pleased to welcome other members of the association who are not taking part in the competition, will be held at The White Swan Hotel, Alnwick on Tues 24 May.
Full details of this event have been sent to all clubs and will also be on the web site.
Our winter fund raising event will again be the Bridge Drive at Stannington Village Hall on Fri 26 February which we hope will be as well supported as in previous years.
I look forward to seeing you all during the course of the year and I hope that the programme of events will attract as many of you as possible to come and play, meet vets from other clubs and continue to share the enjoyment of Northumberland Vets golf.
