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 would encourage all lower handicap ladies and junior girls to get involved in our squad set-up. This year the decision has been made to move forward with a single squad under the leadership of Paula, County Captain and her Vice Captain
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.
The 1st team matches are all played during one week in June – the East Region County Match Week (CMW). 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 five days, each team plays 36 holes every day – this includes three foursomes matches in the morning, followed by six singles matches in the afternoon. Just a little intense!! The winning team with the highest number of points accumulated through the week wins and goes onto to play in the England Finals, which takes place in September.
The team for County Match Week is selected by the County Captain, Vice Captain and Junior Organiser and announced after the CHWGL County Championship in May.
COUNTY MATCH WEEK 2020
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.
This year there is no excuse for not coming to St Ives at some point during the week so that you can support our team – we want a sea of blue.
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). More details can be found on the Seniors’ and Junior pages.
