Gloucestershire Ladies' County Golf Association

First Team

The Gloucestershire First Team have won the  annual  South West Regional Championship for 10 of the past 11 years, and have progressed to win the national title of  England Womens County Champions in 2016 (Waterlooville GC), 2018 (Royal North Devon GC) and 2019 (Delamere Forest).   

This year South West Inter Counties Match Week (SWICMW) was contested at Woodbury Park Golf Club (1st - 5th July 2019), and in 2020 will be held at Dudsbury Park GC (28 June - 1 July 2020)  

The Gloucestershire team is selected each year by the County Captain, mainly but not exclusively from the Training Squad.  The other SW teams are Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. 

The 2020 SWICMW winners will go forward to represent the South West at County Finals 2020, which is to be held at Spalding Golf Club  (14-18 Sept 2020)

Some history:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Gloucestershire first entered a team in the Inter County Championships in 1900 (See About Us). Since then the GLCGA has had varying degrees of success, with 2005 and 2006 looking very promising - the team won through to represent the South West in the England National Finals and gained runner-up spot on both occasions, only being beaten on countback. Then followed a run of six consecutive years of retaining the South West title and qualifying to compete in the Finals but not managing to gain the coveted title. Our team was gaining experience all the while, and in 2016, under the captaincy of Andra Knight, the very young team again retained the SW title and in the Finals managed to defeat Yorkshire 5-4 on the final day to win the coveted trophy at Waterlooville Golf Club and claim the title of England Golf County Champions for the first time.  It was a magical, historic day! In 2017 we were  runners up, to Yorkshire at Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club, and in 2018 we regained the title once more, at Royal North Devon Golf Club.

 Come on Glos - let's see what we can do in 2019!
