Qualifying for the Veterans County Championship took place on Thursday 13th July with the four regional winners reaching the final to be played on Thursday 3rd August.

Region 2 was played at Matlock Golf Club (Derbyshire) where South Yorkshire finished their three group matches with an unblemished record.  Having beaten Derbyshire by 23 and South Yorkshire Parks by 3, they faced neighbours Yorkshire in their final match, who themselves were undefeated.  With five winning cards in this eight-a-side format, South Yorkshire qualified for the final with 21 chalks to spare.
