Gloucestershire County Golf Partnership Club Team Championship





The 2017 Gloucestershire County Golf Partnership Club Team Championship took place last weekend - Sunday 25th June - at Cleeve Cloud Golf Club in testing conditions.

'It was a little windy up on the hill but the views were spectacular' commented one player.  With the promise of a Sunday roast on their return 9 teams took to the hills.  However, whilst they were out at play a power cut took place in the clubhouse and surrounding houses.  Undeterred by the inconvenience the kitchen staff under leadership from Margaret put on a splendid array of salads for the players instead and saved the day.

The home team of Hugh Fitzsimons, Rita New, Trevor Martin and Barbara Smyth took the honors with 83 points followed closely by the Broadway team of Barry Folkes, Louise Folkes, Ben Beacham and Irene Hawkes with 81 points.

The winners will go onto the England Golf Team Championships taking place during Golf Week at Woodhall Spa in August.  We wish them luck !!

Gloucestershire County Golf Partnership held its first (and not its last) Club Team Championships at Cleeve Hill GC - Sunday 26th June.

13 teams took part in an 18-hole am-am playing for the amazing first prize - qualification to the England Golf Club Team Finals at Frilford Heath in August this year.

Scoring was tough on the links course that many had not played before with some holes having just a marker post to show the way.

The winners were the Tewkesbury Park Golf Club Team of Mike and Glo Slatter and Phil and Audrey Payne with 82 points from Lilley Brook Golf Club Team of Martin and Jackie Blain and Eddie and Sue Robinson with 80 points and Minchinhampton New Golf Club Team of David and Sharon Morgan, Simon Mills and Susan Tallett with 79 points.

We were delighted to have Edward Gillespie OBE to present the prizes including the RaceCourse Challenge Bowl to the winners as well as Carole Stratford (President GLCGA) and Ian Watkins (President GGU) to show a truly united Gloucestershire Partnership.

Well done everyone and see you all next year !!
