After the playing season has ended, players have the opportunity to be selected for Women's Winter Training.
The Performance Squad, consisting of up to 20 players. Potential Women's 2nd Team players will combine with potential Women's 1st team players and they will all benefit from two 'away days' together during the winter and other experiences that the County will provide. As well as providing a fun social atmosphere, this gives the Team Managers the opportunity to monitor all potential players and see who is performing well and improving before a decision is made about which players should go into the 1st and 2nd Team Squads in spring. The criteria for selection for Performance Winter Training are:

Pat Stovold is a past Captain and past President of Surrey Ladies’ County Golf Association. She is a great supporter of Surrey Ladies’ Golf, with particular emphasis on the development of junior golf and the encouragement of talented young golfers to the County First Team standard. Pat introduced the Stovold Trophy to the South Region golfing calendar in 1997. The format has remained essentially the same over the years with teams of six (reduced from eight in 2015) playing foursomes in the morning and singles in the afternoon – two home and two away matches in rotation.
