Gloucestershire Ladies' County Golf Association

2022 First Team Results

1st Team friendly match vs COTSWOLD HILLS MEN'S TEAM - 20 FEBRUARY 2022

How lovely it was to catch up with the squad, our first time this year.  Sadly only 10 out of the 19 squad members could attend but they all agreed it was very beneficial and great to see everyone.  We were very pleased to welcome Caley as she had just returned from the USA and was able to join us.

Our County Coach Jamie held a very interesting morning session which took place in a lovely warm clubhouse - doing some team building exercises and rewriting the ‘Code of Conduct’ which had been drawn up by the squad some years ago, which we all agreed needed updating. 

After lunch, we ventured out to play 9 holes against Cotswold Hills Men's 1st team.

The pairings were:

Caley and Alex vs Wes and Ash

Jo and Izzy vs Mike and Owen

Rachael and Chloe vs Charlie and Lawrie

Kate and Mainisha vs Dave and Will.

Some great golf was played in 50 mph winds and then the rain also arrived causing more extremely challenging conditions.  Poor Jo was hit by ball on the shin, just hope the lump isn’t too big today!  All matches went to the 9th with the men beating us 3:1.  It was good to come back into the clubhouse to dry out.  

A great day was had by all.

We're now looking forward to our next Squad Day which is on Sunday, 13 March at Bristol & Clifton GC when we'll be playing against B & C's men. 


On an overcast Sunday (13 March), some of GLCGA's ladies squad took on some of B&C's men's team in a foursomes format.

Leading the charge were Alex Saunders (B&C) and Megan Bartlett (Knowle) who received 5 shots from their playing partners Andy Rudge and Ross Adamson. This match was closely fought with only ever 1 shot difference in the score, but the girls couldn't clinch the win and lost 2&1.

The next pairing of Jo Hodge and Chloe Lloyd (both Knowle) played against Lewys Charles and Carey Ashworth who was subbed in on the last minute and who had to give 3 shots to the girls who went on to win 1UP.

Another home club player, Issy Hopkins (B&C) and Kate Thurlow (Cotswold Hills) were paired to play the men's captain Duncan Smith Captain and Chris Rowe and they had to give the girls 2 shots. Unfortunately the girls couldn’t compete with these two men who were putting in from all angles with even 40 footers dropping. The girls lost 6/5

Lorna Evans (Minchinhampton) and Mainisha Lawrence (Brickhampton Court) played against B&C's Chairman Richard Bromilow and Nicholas Wessels who had to give them 6 shots. The girls won 2/1.

The final pairing of Rachael Howell and Izzy Lloyd played against Sam Partidge and Liam Rice who had to give the girls 2 shots. The girls won their match on the 18th, 1UP which meant the overall result was a 3:2 win to GLCGA!

The match was played in a very good spirit with much chatting and laughter, and was followed by tea and cakes.

A big thank you to Bristol & Clifton GC for their hospitality and a special thanks to Ian James for arranging the match and we look forward to returning next year.


Some of the GLCGA Ladies Squad played against Worcestershire & Herefordshire Ladies 1st team in a friendly match, played at The Bristol GC.

Unfortunately one of the W&H team had to pull out last minute so that meant that the first foursomes match was played with 2 Glos players playing against the single W&H player.

In the morning session, W&H came out on top going into lunch with a 3 point advantage.

In the afternoon session, the format was the same as is played at Inter Counties with 2 Foursomes matches and 3 singles matches.  Gloucestershire won 2 of the matches with the other matches all hotly contested, but with W&H already securing a lead in the morning, the overall result gave them a 6.5 point to 2.5 point win.

Thanks go to The Bristol GC for their hospitality and to all the supporters who turned up to cheer on Team Gloucestershire.
