The County compete at a variety of levels from the Under 14s right through to the County 1st Team. We expect our players to be fully committed to Gloucestershire, and to represent us with pride. We are very proud of our history of producing successful teams at all levels - long may it continue!
The pinnacle of a normal playing season is our participation in South West Week, which takes place in June of each year - the venue for South West Week rotates between the very finest courses in the South West of England. In 2018, South West Week was played at Cumberwell Park Golf Club in Somerset, and in 2019, it was staged at Parkstone in Dorset. During the South West Week, we also take part in the annual qualifying event for the English County Finals, the finals of which are in September each year.

As well as South West Week, our 1st Team compete in The Channel League, whilst our 2nd Team compete in The Wessex Salver.
At Junior level, our Under 18s take part in four major events during the year: The Midland Four Counties in April, The Channel League which runs throughout the season, the English County Championship (qualifying in July and finals in August), and the Severnside Four Counties in August - a very hectic schedule! Our Under 16s also compete in their own version of The Channel League.
