First Team - England County Champions!
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 3 times, in 2016 (Waterlooville GC), 2018 (Royal North Devon GC) and 2019 (Delamere Forest), and were runners up to Yorkshire in 2017 (Felixstowe Ferry) .
Unfortunately due to COVID-19, South West Inter Counties Match Week which was due to be held in its new format at Dudsbury GC between 28 June - 1 July was cancelled and County Finals which were due to be played at Spalding GC (14 - 18 September) was also cancelled.
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.
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. We regained the title in 2018 at Royal North Devon Golf Club, and managed to retain it in 2019 at Delamere Forest.
