The Girls’ Championship which was held at Henbury GC alongside the U16 and U14 Boys’ Championship proved to be a very tightly contested championship with only 3 shots between the top three girls.  Twenty-one girls competed in total and we had to wait until the last group to find out who our Champion was, and it was Millie Gait (Knowle GC) with a gross 74 and who pipped Mariella Buchanan (Long Ashton GC) to the title with Mariella shooting a gross 75.

Millie also picked up the U16 Best Gross Score, whilst Mariella who was only 14 in April picked up the U14 Best Gross Score.  

Our Nett Champion Lotti Butler, shot an amazing nett 60 with the next closest competitor shooting a nett 72. 

Both Millie and Lotti will be entered into the Justin Rose/Telegraph Junior Golf Championship, a National competition, which attracts entries from all over England, which could see them being invited to the Final that takes place in Portugal in the Autumn at Quinta do Lago.

Millie will also represent Gloucestershire at England Golf’s Girls’ Champion of Champions which takes place on 7 September at Woodhall Spa.

We were lucky with the weather, with thunder all around us and even though there was a short shower midway through the afternoon, it was welcomed by the competitors who were really suffering in the heat.

Henbury GC were excellent hosts, with the course in exceptional condition and we are very grateful to the members for giving up their Sunday tee times and to the green staff who should be commended on the state of the course and to the clubhouse staff who provided everyone with fantastic service throughout the day.  A big thanks to Josh, the General Manager who was on hand all day, even providing first aid treatment to one of the competitors who unfortunately got in the way of a wayward ball – we are assured that she is recovering well!

A bit thank you to the GGU executives, Dean and Chris, who organised the venue and made sure we all had pin positions and local rules sheets and to the referees who certainly earnt their refreshments with lots of rulings and support to the competitors.

A big thank you to Pat Righton for starting, to Ali Kelly for doing the presentation and to Karen Rix, Debbie Casling and Alex Saunders for supporting the girls and for assisting me in getting the Championship sorted, even though it was very complicated with ceded prizes – I promise to do better next year!  

Roll on the rest of the season and I look forward to seeing you continuing to enjoy your game and for your handicaps to reduce.

It was that time of year again, when the Girls played the U16 Boys and following last year's halved match, the girls really wanted to go one better!  Last year we played a Foursomes format, but we reverted back to Greensomes this year.

With a couple of girls unavailable, our team was slightly different from last year.  The weather was good on the day and even though prior to the match we had been experiencing dreaful downpours, the course was in great condition.

Stinchcombe staff welcomed both teams and we were well looked after and with Richard Salter (GGU Vice President) starting all the matches, it was time for the girls to go out and try and beat the boys.  Unfortunately this wasn't the year for the team to do this, and even though we lost 4.5:1.5, the result didn't really reflect the way the girls played with five of the six matches going to the 17th or 18th hole.

It was great to see some burgundy supporters with Pat Righton, Karen Rix, Ali Kelly and Olive French all turning up in their burgundy colours to support the girls.

The match was played in great spirit as always and even though the girls lost this year, they are already looking forward to next year's match - think we might revert to a foursomes format next year though!  Well played girls and let's look forward to our next match.



On Sunday, 10 March we had our first Gloucestershire Girls match of the season and went to Brickhampton Court Golf Complex and played against Worcestershire & Herefordshire Girls.

The weather stayed dry for us all afternoon which was great.  Although the course was boggy and tough in areas it was in overall good condition considering the weather had been so bad lately.  Irrespective of the conditions, Gloucestershire won with a great score of 4 : 3.  It was a very close match with four of the matches going to the 18th.  It was great to be joined for our first match by two new girls from Lilley Brook GC, Regina and Tilly who added strength to our team. The team's environment was very positive.

A big thank you to Chris Douglas and Janice Saunders for organising the match, to Brickhampton Court GC for hosting it and for the food that we enjoyed afterwards and to Worcestershire & Herefordshire Girls and their supporters for giving us a great match - we look forward to travelling to Worcestershire & Herefordshire for the 2025 match.
