This season presents another opportunty for the present squad and newcomers to make an impression within the competitive environment of representative golf.
The existing development squad with some new faces have been active through the winter playing in the Matchplay competition held at Weston Super Mare golf club, I am delighted to say that Jason Brock has reached the quarter final and will play Matt Turner for a place in the semi-final.
The development squad has an increased fixture list this year and this will present the players with an increased opportunity to impress, we are always looking to add golfers to the County set up and players who have achieved a 2 or better handicap should get in touch with me and express their interest.
It is the main objective within the development squad to ensure that the players are continually exposed to formats of play that replicate as closely as possible the experiences of the 1 st team, this will assist in preparing them for consideration in the future.
Each place within the development or 1 st team squad is awarded on merit and players should be committed to representing the county at both levels when selected. It is important that all players are individually driven to improve in all aspects of their game and have a burning desire to play representative golf, equally important is recognition of the game and its standards and whilst adhering to these to remember to play with a smile on your face.
