Friendly Matches

LCSLGA usually plays two friendly matches every year, one against Welsh Northern Counties and one against Lancashire Ladies' County Golf Association's "B" Team. Both matches are played home or away alternate years and are usually played early in the season to get the teams used to matchplay again after the winter lay off. 

Sadly in 2020 both matches were cancelled and in 2021 the match against the Lancashire "B" team has been rearranged but the WNC match will be postponed until 2022.

LCSLGA v Welsh Northern Counties

   

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

Played at Holyhead Golf Club on Saturday 27th April 2019

Our Lancashire Seniors had a tough match to play not only against the Welsh Northern Counties team, but also against storm “Hanna”, which lashed our Welsh and Lancashire coast line last Friday night and Saturday. However, as the saying goes when the going gets tough the tough get going! Our team of eight playing 4BBB matches certainly applied themselves with grit and determination against a very competitive Welsh team when they played their match at Holyhead Golf Club last Saturday.
Despite the strong gale force winds and showers that battered the players throughout the match they still smiled and agreed it had been tough, but a good challenge for them. The standard of golf was very high despite the difficult weather conditions.
We lost the first match, won the second and fourth match and the third match was very evenly balanced and went all the way to the 18th where we narrowly lost one down, so overall the match was halved, which especially under the challenging weather conditions was a good result and a tremendous effort by our team who didn’t really know the course as most of them had never played it before.

LCSLGA v LLCGA “B”

 

LCSLGA v Lancashire "B"


Played at Preston Golf Club on Sunday 21st April 2019

LCSLGA won our first friendly match against the Lancs B team at Preston G C on Sunday, 3-1. County Vice Captain Wendy Barnsley fielded a stronger and slightly more experienced and older team than usual and agreed to play the match level as a scratch match. It made it a much better match for everyone and some very good golf was played. One of Wendy's youngsters Beth Greenhalgh had her first hole-in-one on the 15th hole, which Captain had the pleasure of seeing and taking a picture of. Our new players Adrienne Bennett and Amanda O'Brien enjoyed the experience as much as our seasoned players as it was a very keenly contested match.
