The Duchess Salver was presented to the County by J.K.R Graveney during his term in office as County Captain in 1972, and is the Gloucestershire Order of Merit for amateur golfers.
For many years it has been the most important indicator to County selectors of a players current form and ability. The event boasts a very fine list of previous winners, many of them former internationals including both Gordon Brand Jnr and Chris Wood who have both gone on to become successful European Tour professionals.
It is essential that all players who want to achieve County honours ensure that they enter as many of its events as they possibly can.
