National Women's Champion Club Competition for 2023

Women’s Champion Club Competition

For many years. England Golf have run an English Champion Club competition for male golfers. Each county submits a club team of three players who have qualified through their respective county’s qualifying competition. The final is played over 36 holes of stroke play with all three scores counting towards the winning score. The club with the lowest (gross) score is declared the English Champion Club of the Year and goes on to represent England in the European Final, assisted by a grant from England Golf.

Following feedback from the women’s county associations, the same event will be run for women in 2023. The inaugural running of the tournament shall take place next year (2023) as follows:
