CAPTAIN Lesley Marsh (Ponteland)
PRESIDENT Ros Windows (Arcot Hall)
VICE CAPTAIN Audrey Pattison (Morpeth)
It’s a great pleasure
for me to take over as captain of NCVLGA for the 2013 season. My own interest
in golf took on a new lease of life when I joined the Vets and I hope that all
our members will feel the same way. The dates for events taking place in the
coming year are detailed on the website and I would like to encourage new and
existing members alike to enter.
The Vets Championship
will be played at Ponteland in May, after which the county team will be
selected. This team competes in the Richardson Trophy matches against the other
five northern counties. Three of these matches will be at Ponteland in July and
it would be a tremendous encouragement to the players if there were lots of
yellow-clad supporters out on the course to cheer them on.
Also in May the Bronze
Meeting at Westerhope will determine who is to play in the Bronze team matches
against Cumbria, at Eden Golf Club, and against Durham at Morpeth.
It would be great to
see the teams succeeding in bringing the Richardson Trophy and the two Bronze
trophies back to Northumberland. However my main hope for the year is that the
weather allows the courses to return to their normal condition so that we can
get out there and enjoy playing and practising the game we all love.
