GGG - Competitions 2024
We run a number of events throughout the season - there are 5 Stableford and card marking competitions, a junior championship and an end-of-season event.
Entry and competition payment should be made 'Online’ (use the Online Signup links below). Entrants for the Pre-handicap Card Marking competitions need to email Janice if they wish to compete in a competition - please email the girls' name and their home club, and the name of the event they want to enter to Janice and pay online using the GGG Bank details below. Email: email@example.com. We run a Stableford Order of Merit throughout the season based on entry and performance.
To make the season more interesting, after a couple of years of trialling the opportunity for girls to accrue more OOM points by playing in nominated junior opens, we have decided to formalise a County Junior Girls OOM called "JENNY MAY OOM", which will include all Junior Opens across the County. Girls will also need to have competed in at least 3 of the GGG stablefords to be eligible for prizes which will be presented at the End of Season Presentation Day on 13th October. If girls play in Junior Opens they will be awarded entry/participation points, and girls can also get more points if they are in the top two girl golfers for both the nett and gross scores (if they are the nett and gross winner, they will only get points for the gross score). The Junior Opens are listed below.
Please contact Janice Saunders, CJO, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 07770 533238 should you have any queries about any GGG competitions.
GGG Stableford & Card Marking Competition Days - 2024 Series
The GGG Stableford & Card Marking Competition Days comprise a series of 5 events during the 2024 playing season, giving girls an opportunity for regular competition with other girl golfers:
HANDICAP CATEGORIES AND PRIZES
On Competition days, we will run an 18-hole Stableford for players with handicaps up to 54, and we will also run a 9-hole Card Marking Competition for beginners who don't have a handicap but are ready to start marking cards. There are three prize categories based on handicap for each Competition Day:
Up to 20 handicap 21 - 36 handicap 37 - 54 handicap
1st place: £10 voucher
2nd place: £8 voucher (awarded if 7 or more players)
3rd place: £5 voucher (awarded if 13 or more players)
A selection of prizes will be awarded to competitors of the 9-hole Card Marking competitions based on results and noteworthy performances. Prize vouchers which can be redeemed at your own Club's Pro Shop will be awarded to winners of the 18-hole Stableford Competition.
Results from the 5 Stableford Competition Days will be collated and will form part of the 2024 Stableford Series Order of Merit. Order of Merit trophies and prizes will be presented at the Jenny May Day End of Season Event on 13th October at The Bristol Golf Club.

JENNY MAY OOM
We have been trialling an additional OOM over the past couple of years which incentivised girls to enter Junior Opens across the County and last year we included all the Junior Opens in this OOM. We called this OOM the GGG Junior Open OOM, but in memory of Jenny May, who was a very active supporter of girls golf in Gloucestershire and who sadly passed away in 2023, we have decided to give our Junior Open OOM an official name, so from 2024, this OOM will be called the Jenny May OOM.
Girls must compete in at least three GGG Stablefords to be eligible to win the Jenny May OOM and points will be awarded to all girls who participate in the following Junior Opens, with any finishing as the top girl for either nett and gross scores, being awarded even more points.

End of season review & Jenny May Day - 13th October 2024,
The Bristol Golf Club
This is GGG's special end-of-season event for all girl golfers in the county. All girls with or without handicaps are welcome to attend this event. It's always a great, fun event and usually the Junior Captain chooses a theme, so that if girls want to wear fancy dress they can do so.
The GGG end-of-season report and prize giving will start the day's event, followed by a meal and then the golfing activities start with a Florida Scramble over 18 holes for girls with handicaps, and if there are sufficient pre-handicappers, then we will run a 9-hole scramble or a variation which may involve playing parents will go out to play in the Florida Scramble. Once everyone has finished their rounds, we will have a quick presentation of prizes and then it's 'home' time.
How to enter
Entry deadline is 5th October 2024. The entry fee is £12.00 per player, which includes a meal, and should be paid before the closing date. Girls can enter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by registering online here: JMD Online Entry
Pre-handicappers should email email@example.com
The start sheet will be emailed out to entrants the week before the event and posted on the website.
