Gloucestershire first entered a team in the Inter County Championships in 1900 (See About Us).
Since then the GLCGA has had numerous fortunes, with 2005-06 being its most successful years, when the team gained runner-up spot in the England National Finals on both occasions, only being beaten on countback. Then came a run of six consecutive years reaching the Finals and, in 2016, SUCCESS!
Under the captaincy of Andra Knight, the very young team defeated Yorkshire 5-4 on the final day to win the coveted trophy at Waterlooville Golf Club.
It was a magical, historic day!
