PLAYERS   (Alphabetical order)                                      


Rachael Archibald


I grew up playing golf in Scotland, both inner city parkland and links.  Although I've swung a club for most of my life I only took it up when I was 14 years old.  I played for club, county and district in Scotland as a junior and I'm delighted to be getting back into county golf. 

I've lived in Edinburgh, Sheffield, Preston, America and Manchester in the past 3 years and I'm now happily settled in Bristol as a member of The Bristol GC, ready to play my part in a successful 2016 and beyond for GLCGA.



Megan Bartlett


Hi, my name is Megan and I am currently a member at Knowle Golf Club.  I am 16 years old and my handicap is now 5.  I have played for Gloucestershire Girls Golf (GGG) for five years and one of my best moments was playing in the South West Inter Counties in 2017 and being asked to be the girls junior county captain for 2018.  I am really looking forward to 2018 and being part of the GLCGA training squad and team. 


Jess Brown



I'm Jess and am very honoured to have been selected as Vice-Captain for the County Junior team for 2018, as well as being included in the County Ladies squad again.  I loved playing (mainly for the 2nd team) in 2017 and although there are so many talented ladies in the Gloucestershire my aim this year is to become a regular 1st team player.  Outside of golf I'm taking my GCSE's this year and play netball and hockey at school.  

Go Glos for 2018!

 Ffion Tynan


Hi I'm Ffion, I'm 14 years old and playing off 1.  I'm currently vice captain of Minchinhampton Junior Golf team and I play for the ladies 1st team.  2017 was such a great year for me.  I won the World IMG Florida Challenge in America during the Christmas holidays, shooting -7 in the final round to win.  I was also extremely honoured to be selected for GB & I against Europe in the Junior Vagliano Trophy in Italy.  This was one of the best experiences I've ever had, playing with and against so many amazing players.  

I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Gloucestershire Ladies team.  I loved playing SW county week and County Finals where I played with so many of my favourite people and our coach and support staff were amazing too.  I absolutely love representing Glos and hope we can win back the English County Championship later this year! 

I'm a member of the Female Welsh Transition Squad and have been selected to play in a number of tournaments for Wales.  I'm hoping in due course I can gain a scholarship in an American Div 1 university to develop my game further and eventually make it onto the LPGA tour.  

Outside of golf I enjoy going to the gym, attending CrosFit and hanging out with my friends.  

Go Glos!!





         Andra Knight



Hi, I’ve been a member at Cotswold Hills since I took up golf in 2004.  I now play off 8.  I have served on club committee in various roles (comp Sec is definitely the most time-consuming!) and was Ladies' Captain in 2011, then served as Alliance rep for three years, and followed by three years as my club's A Team Captain.

My sporting background includes lots of tennis; I still play a decent social game, and compete for Glos vets on occasion. I played good hockey many years ago at school and university and then socially, until a knee injury stopped me and led me to golf….  Every cloud has a silver lining!  My professional background?  I'm a retired physiotherapist with specialist interest in neurological rehabilitation.

I enjoy supporting, motivating and encouraging individuals and teams and am delighted to have helped Glos to achieve their first national title in 2016 and come a very close 2nd in 2017.  I'm very excited about 2018 and aim to inspire the whole squad to achieve great golfing highs! 


Su Mallon

Vice Captain 


Hi, I'm Su and I am a member of Minchinhampton Golf Club (New) which I joined on retirement after 35 years in the Ministry of Defence where I enjoyed a variety of roles and where one of my highlights was having an active role in managing the RAF display programme which included The Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and other RAF display teams.  I have always been active in sports from competitive swimming in my formative years to netball.  During my MOD career I played netball and managed netball teams before getting involved in golf in 1993 assisting my husband Brian in various roles when he was an Oxfordshire Golf Captain.  I finally took up golf myself in 2003 and it was not long before I was involved in various committee duties, which continued when i moved to S Gloucestershire.  I am currently the Minchinhampton County Delegate.  I am excited and enthusiastic about joining the squad and look forward to the challenges ahead. 


  Andy McGreevy



Hi, I'm Andy and a Class A PGA professional at Bristol & Clifton Golf Club where I started in 2012 after completing my degree in PE and Sport.  I specialise in strength and conditioning in golf.  

As well as coaching some of the county's promising youngsters, I have also worked with some of the age group county squads, a couple of the ladies squad, as well as professional touring players in a strength and conditioning capacity.  

I'm looking forward to using my expertise in both coaching and strength and conditioning to build on the great work already done by all the players, coaches and officials in the GLCGA.
