Here at Gloucestershire Golf Union, we have two Orders of Merit:
Duchess Salver - for our adult golfers
Jeff Hall Trophy - for our junior golfers
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 current holder of the Duchess Salver is Nick Day (Henbury Golf Club).
Jeff Hall Trophy
The Jeff Hall Trophy is open to any Junior who is a member of a club that is affiliated to the County, and is the Order of Merit for golfers who are under 18 years of age at the start of the year. There are three tables: Under 18s, Under 16s and Under 14s.
All qualifying events are an important indicator to County selectors of a player's current ability and it is advisable for all competitors who aspire to County honours to enter these events.
The current holders are:
Under 18s: Oliver Jenkins (The Players Club)
Under 16s: Milan Read (Long Ashton)
Under 14s: Ashley Millington (The Players Club)
