Worlebury Ladies clinced their third promotion in a row after a 12-2 victory over Mendip A in the Bristol & District Lady Golfers Alliance.
The win sealed Worlebury's passage into Division Two after gathering an unassailable lead of 122 points in Division Three.
The ladies have now gone 32 games unbeaten, starting in 2017, and captain Claire Bayliss says this achivement is down to her teammates of Amanda Cook, Janet Jamieson, Sue Tarry, Sue Sokol, Katherine Sokol, Emma Bourton, Helen Clarke, Maxine Gardiner and Janet Fear.
"I don't really know what else to say about this group of ladies apart from you are all brilliant," said Bayliss.
"I am very proud to lead them as captain. Division Two beckons next season and whilst it is going to be tough I have every faith in this squad and am sure that we will do well."
