 The Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs advise you as follows with regards to YUGC golf in 2020.

County Members

The following four meetings are all now cancelled –

  • Cleveland April 16th
  • Selby April 30th
  • Moortown May 7th
  • Driffield May 28th

Entry fees will be refunded on request or else ‘carried forward’ should you so wish. We hope to see you competing at a future meeting but if you require a refund please let us know.

Given the administrative work involved please also allow our Treasurer a reasonable period of time to undertake this task!

An announcement regarding future (2020) County Members meetings will be made in due course.


Team Championships

  • The 7th Div. Prelim. Championship (8th April) & the 7th Division Championship (22nd April) have been cancelled.
  • No decision has yet been made regarding the 6th Division Championship (6th May) and the other remaining Championships.
  • A refund of monies will be provided in the event of non-competition.
  • The next scheduled update is planned for Monday 20th April.

Individual Championships.

  • The first of these is the Boys’ Championship which is due to be played at Scarcroft on the 28th May. 
  • It has been agreed to defer the decision on holding this championship until nearer the date for the event based on feedback from the Club and the prevailing Government advice at that time. YUGC is particularly determined to hold the Boys Championship, even if postponed, since this will be the last year many of the boys will be eligible to enter.
  • Should the events be postponed every effort will be made to hold the Championships later in the year.
  • The associated England Golf “Champion of Champions (Men’s, Seniors and Boys)” events have been cancelled.
  • The next scheduled update is planned for Monday 20th April.

Inter Club Foursomes.

The Draw and matches has been delayed until the end of May. Please contact me if your club wishes to withdraw and a refund of the entry fee paid will be arranged.

Northern Counties Golf Union

NC matches are due to be played commencing May and a decision on whether to proceed or not is awaited by us. No announcement has yet been made with regards to their championships the first of which is due to be played in July. Boys, Mens and Seniors matches are all likely to be affected and we will update you further asap.

All county coaching sessions have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
