The Gloucestershire County Stats System is available to any member of a County Coaching Squad, or regular Team player. We first started using it in 2008, and it's use has grown over the last few years to the point where we have well over 2000 rounds in our database.
Through the discipline of our players, we have been able to analyse County Golf to the point where we can provide general advice on what to practice that is based on FACT - this should provide valuable information to anybody who is hoping to become a County 1st Team golfer.
More importantly, we have been able to provide information to individual players about:-
For each hole played in a competitive stroke play round the player records the following:-
Simple, and deliberately so - we want to make it as easy as possible to record the information whilst capturing enough to be able to provide valuable feedback - and we think we've got it just about right for County golfers.
The stats can be recorded and submitted in one of two ways:-
Quite a lot in fact - over any time period and over any combination of courses and/or players, we provide:-

Use of the County Stats System is compulsory for members of the Gold Squad and Men's Silver Squad - why is this ? Because we believe that significant investment in a players improvement programme needs to be under-pinned by fact based information about their game.
The minimum requirement is for players to submit information for at least 15 rounds in a season - but not surprisingly, the best players in the County make far more use of the facility than that.
If you are looking for ways to make a difference to your game and aren't yet using a stats system then maybe now is the time to try !
