How do I get involved?

To get yourself noticed, all you need to do is compete in as many of our ranking events as you possibly can. Play in those events and we can guarantee that you’ll appear on our radar. And as long as you’re able to make the commitment required then there’s every chance you’ll be selected. In our youngest age groups, the amount you’re prepared to play in competitions away from your home club is the single thing we’re most interested in. If you’re prepared to compete, then we can help you do that at an even higher level.

We record the scores of all Gloucestershire Golf Union-qualified players at these events, and use that information to support our selections. We publish the data we are using to support our selections on the  County Stroke Average pages.
