Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs Centenary 2020

In 2020 the Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs celebrates its centenary. Formed at a meeting in Manchester in November, 1920, the Union grew rapidly as the game of golf became ever more popular and new clubs emerged across Cheshire. Its history has seen classic matches, the emergence of great players and, most importantly, the fostering of a great cameraderie amongst players and officials both within Cheshire and the other counties with whom we have competed.

Today, we have 94 affiliated clubs. We run championships and county team at elite, boys and senior levels. Previous winners of the County Championship include Jamie Donaldson and David Horsey.

The centenary year has, of course, been hit by the Covid-19 crisis, to the extent that the Union has put back its celebrations to 2021. Details will be available here in due course. After over three years of research, we have created a high quality book to mark the centenary. It charts our history from 1920 and will be distributed to clubs and those who wish to purchase a copy in the near future.
