CHWGL County Teams
CHWGL is a small county when compared with our neighbours, but despite this we always strive to compete to the best of our collective ability. On this basis we encourage all lower handicap ladies and junior girls to get involved in our squad set-up. We have a single squad under the leadership of Paula, County Captain and her Vice-Captain, Jackie Ewing
Our key objective is to motivate, organise and provide training and support all those players with the potential to join the county squad (s) and who can commit to the schedule of training and matches.
If you would like to get involved as a player, please contact Paula. or Jackie
The 1st team matches are all played over 3 days in June – the East Region County Match Days. Here the six East Region counties, namely Bedfordshire, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire and Cambs & Hunts, field teams typically made up of 10 -12 players. Over the three days, each team plays the other counties.
Each match now involves three singles and two foursomes matches. The winning team with the highest number of points accumulated over the three days wins and goes onto to play in the England Finals, which takes place in September.
The team for County Match Days is selected by the County Captain, Vice-Captain and Junior Organiser and announced after the CHWGL County Championship in May.
Please come along and support your county team
Representing the CHWGL as a player can be a challenging and intense experience. We know from what the players tell us, that having spectators adorned in pale blue following them round raises everyone’s spirits.
Coming along as a spectator gives you the opportunity to make a real contribution by spurring the players on and boosting their spirits. You can also enjoy watching some excellent amateur golf. Please put at least one day in your diary.
We also have a series of county matches for Seniors and Juniors (who additionally compete in other East Region junior competitions).
