We play three friendly matches against Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire and compete in the Northern Counties Seniors League which was formed in 2011 with matches against Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Northumberland and Durham. The competition is very strong and despite being the only team not to lose a match we failed to win the league on countback after three drawn matches to the eventual winners. We are more determined than ever to win back the title in 2020.
The six EGU Northern Counties compete for the Seniors Six Man Team Championship which is a 36 hole stroke play event held over one day with the best five scores each round counting for the title. As winners at Garforth last year Yorkshire went on to represent the Northern Counties Seniors at the English Seniors County Finals at Effingham Golf Club on 8th to 10th October and emerged as winners and English Champions after three days of very competitive matchplay golf. The EGU Qualifying event this year is to be held at Silloth Golf Club on Tuesday 1st September with the English Finals at Torquay Golf Club on 6th/8th October.
We hope that our strongest players will be able to make themselves available for selection in all the Northern Counties League matches and the Team Championship in September.
