County First Team

The County Captain and County Coaching Officer invite a number of low handicap golfers to a series of training sessions during the winter months.

The main matches for the First Team are at Midlands South County Match Week in June of each year, when Bucks take on the first teams from Berkshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire & Herefordshire.

The squad for County Week is announced after the County Championships. The criteria used for selecting the squad was established a number of years ago and includes previous experience at County Week, performance in the County Championships, attendance at training and general commitment to the county, plus availability.

Please see the County Week page for details of County Match Week.

The winning county from County Week goes forward to National Finals in September, where the winning counties from each of the six regional county weeks play for the title of National County Champions.
