This is combined with the Silver Meeting, for which there is a prize for the Best Gross, presented by the President of the Association, and 4 nett prizes.

The best 16 gross scores qualify for matchplay over two days. The Champion for the year is presented with the Championship Trophy, which is a silver salver, and the Captain of the Association's Prize. The Runner Up receives a prize and the Runner's Up Trophy, which is also a silver salver, presented by the Association in 2008.

Championship & Silver Meeting 2023

The 2023 Championship and Silver Meeting was held at Clitheroe Golf Club 7th - 9th May and 70 players took part.

Sunday was a very pleasant day, we were not so lucky on Monday as there was much rain during the late afternoon but fortunately there were no play off holes. On Tuesday, the weather was great, the semi finals in the morning saw Min Dennison - Royal Birkdale beating Sara Fitzgerald - Ormskirk and Jill McGhie - Lancaster beating Elaine Clark - Manchester  on the 19th hole. The final between Min and Jill was extremely close and very exciting, Jill beating Min on the 19th hole.

All the matches were played in great spirit and thank you to all who came to support, it was indeed a wonderful day. I would like to thank the Committee for all their hard work in making the Championship so successful, in particular to Christine our Secretary. Thank you also to Clitheroe Golf Club, the course was fabulous and we were looked after so well by all concerned at the Club.

We are all looking forward to the Richardson Trophy Matches with some new faces in the squad. Good luck Girls!!
