GLOUCESTERSHIRE GIRLS v GLOUCESTERSHIRE LADY VETS - 31st MAY 

Every year, the Gloucestershire Girls are invited to play in a friendly match against some of the Gloucestershire Vets.  Some of our higher handicapped girls like to play in this match as it provides them with invaluable experience from the Lady Vets during a very relaxed game of golf.  All the girls who played would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to the Lady Vets for giving up their time and making the match so enjoyable.

Report from Gabriella Haynes, Knowle Golf Club

"On Wednesday the 31st May, the Gloucestershire Girls squad met at Shirehampton golf club, for the second friendly match this season, ready to take on a strong Vets team. 

For some of the girls it was their first time playing for Gloucestershire Girls and they were nervous, but everyone played amazingly and were in high spirits.
 
It was a hilly course, so it tired us all out,  but nobody gave up and that's why we won 4/3. That day, there was some great golf played and it was very enjoyable. 
 
Thank you very much to Shirehampton Golf Cub for letting us hold the match there and to Alex Saunders for organising a fantastic competition."

GLOUCESTERSHIRE GIRLS v WORCESTERSHIRE & HEREFORDSHIRE GIRLS - 9th APRIL

On Sunday 9th April, 12 Gloucestershire girls played in a friendly match against the girls from Worcestershire & Herefordshire at The Worcestershire Golf Club.

The sun shone and the girls took on the challenges of quite a tight course that had some lightening fast greens and some that were so slow it was difficult to get the balls to the hole!

Our girls’ handicaps ranged from 8 – 36 and we had a couple of rookies – Chloe and Gabriella - who stepped onto the first tee with a few nerves but they battled throughout the match and although we lost 10:2, this didn’t really reflect some of the excellent golf that was played. 

Ten year old Gabriella whose golf trolley is only a little bit smaller than herself played outstanding – with a maximum match handicap of 36 she had to play off 4 shots lower than her current handicap of 40 with her opponent playing off 30.  So what did she do – she took her opponent to the 18th losing only 1 down which was an incredible achievement.  

With some of the girls losing holes against their opponents early in the match, they fought well to pull some holes back and never gave up.  It was a tough match with Worcestershire & Herefordshire girls taking advantage of their home course knowledge but next year we’ll welcome them to one of our clubs and hopefully the result will be reversed!

A big thanks go to The Worcestershire GC for hosting the match, to Worcestershire & Herefordshire’s Junior Organiser for organising everything and to all our opponents and most importantly to all the Gloucestershire supporters, especially Sue Rawles, our County Vice President who was able to provide on-course rulings when they were needed!

ACADEMY COACHING FITNESS AND NUTRITION SESSION - 18 FEBRUARY 2017

SIMON PUTS THE GLOS GIRLS THROUGH THEIR PACES

Some of the Glos Girls joined Simon Sveder-Cain of Personal Best Studio at Brickhampton Court Golf Complex for a fitness and nutrition session last Saturday and he certainly put them through their paces!

With Lowri travelling for 24 hours across Europe after her ski-ing trip to get to the session and another girl, who shall remain nameless (!) who was on a ‘sleepover’ the night before and only achieved 2 hours sleep – Simon was extremely impressed by all the girls commitment to participate in all the exercises he set them – he even said they were his best group for a long time and they were still smiling at the end of the session! So well done girls and let’s hope the exercises and advice that Simon gave you will help you during the forthcoming golf season.

The Jenny May Day, The Bristol Golf Club - 16th October 

This was our last event of the year and was a chance to reflect on the fantastic year that you girls have had. We started the day with our yearly report highlighting some of your achievements and the presentation of awards before going on to the 18 hole and 9 hole Texas Scrambles and crazy putting competitions.  Many thanks must go to ‘The Bristol Golf Club’ for hosting the day.

Jenny May very kindly came to present the awards and trophies to our winners. If you would like to see who won the awards and read the yearly report click here and to see a copy of the powerpoint presentation click here.

It was an exciting day’s golf and there was even a hole in one! - Neve Jeffery on the 8th hole of the academy course; she also went on to win the putting competition. Well done Neve.

Nine girls took part in the 9 hole texas scramble. Many thank to Janice Saunders, Justina Prosser, Marion Jackson who walked with the girls and to Bethan Popel who offered advice and inspiration to them. I think Beth was even more excited than Neve when she witnessed her hole in one. Thank you also to Sue Rawles for presenting the prizes.

The 18 hole Texas Scramble was a closely contested competition. It is always a pleasure to watch the different age and ability girls playing together with such enjoyment. There were some impressive scores and we had to wait for the last group to come in before we had our winners. Thank you to Carole Stratford who came to present the prizes. The day finished with Girl’s Captain Charlie Hiatt making a very good speech thanking ‘The Bristol Golf Club’ on behalf of us all.

Gloucestershire Girls' v Oxfordshire Girls' - 9 October

On Sunday, 9th October, 7 of our girls played in a match against Oxfordshire at Cirencester Golf Club.  The team consisted of Caley McGinty, Charlie Hiatt (C), Sophie Price, Hannah Brown Pearce, Megan Bartlett, Jess Brown and Martha Evans.  A big well done to Charlie for winning her match 9/7 despite having to give shots.  The Gloucestershire girls did so well to win the match 4-3 especially when most of the team were giving shots, and we were playing in the chillier October weather.  Well done to both teams!

A few big thank you's to Cirencester Golf Club for kindly hosting the match, Sue Rawles for starting us all off and Ali and Alex for organising the day.

GGG vs. South Lady Vets - 1 June

Today the girls vs vets match was played at Chipping Sodbury golf club. Despite the gusty and chilly day the course was in brilliant condition, which was very noticeable to everyone. A special well done goes to Jess Brown and Lily Whitaker making an outstanding win of 9/7. Well done to all of the other girls who also made some big win, particularly as all of us were giving shots! In the end we won 6 out of our 7 matches making the overall scores 12-2  (see below). Some excellent golf was played from both teams and the day overall was great.

GGG vs. Herefordshire & Worcestershire - 2 April

On Saturday 2nd April, 8 Gloucestershire Girls all from different golf clubs made their way to Cotswold Hills Golf Club for a friendly match against Herefordshire and Worcestershire. With Sue Rawles as starter and a lovely sunny day, the girls were raring to play.

All the girls played extremely well and we were happy to see 3 new girls to the Gloucestershire team, Naiomi Armitage, Izzy Lloyd and Issie Edwards.

The team consisted of Ffion Tynan, Sophie Price, Lindsey Hunt, Izzy Lloyd, Naiomi Armitage, Issie Edwards, Macy Edwards and Kim Parker with handicaps ranging from 8-23.

Ffion, off first played fantastically and secured an early win of 8 and 6! Sophie to follow also fought well with a 2 and 1 win after being 2 down after 9 holes. Unfortunately Lindsey lost her match 4 and 3 however she fought well to stay in it coming back from being several holes down. Never give up! Issie, Macy and Kim also lost their matches however Naiomi and Izzy won their matches which resulted in a friendly draw, 4-4.

The Girls would just like to say a big thank you to Ali and Alex for organising the day and Sue for starting them off. Additionally, Cotswold Hills golf club for kindly hosting the match and all of the parents for bringing the girls. All in all, it was a lovely day and we look forward to a rematch next year!

Fitness Session - 13 February

A number of girls took up the challenge of a very intensive workout session at Brickhampton Golf Club...

Simon, a professional trainer, who led the session has trained many people from amateurs to the top PGA golf players. Simon gave the girls a lot of different work outs to try and help improve their strength for their golf.  The girls worked their hardest and were surprisingly quiet throughout the session. All in all it was a great session that all the girls really enjoyed!
