Message from the President
Thank you for your interest in Cheshire Golf.
As we approach our Centenary in 2020, Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs aims to promote excellence on the course and in the Club house. We can offer relevant advice to our affiliated Clubs on a range of issues through our Delegate meetings, the Cheshire Golf Development Group and two Club Support Officers..
Our primary aim is to arrange high quality events for top players in the County through our own Championships and Inter County matches. Our website provides a wealth of information on the range of matches, championships and other events arranged by the Union. It is now possible to enter all Championships and tournaments “on-line” and view updates on start times, tournament information and gain direct access to live scoring at all County events.
It seems that many of our affiliated Clubs are finding it difficult to attract and retain Junior golfers but we must all do our utmost to encourage and develop our Juniors for the long term good of the game. CUGC provides coaching opportunities for the most promising youngsters as they stand to be the County players and stars of the future.
I commend the County Life Membership scheme through which golfers across the County are able to enjoy playing in up to 8 golfing events at different courses during the year at a very attractive entrance fee. An application to join can be completed very simply via this website.
The County Card Scheme continues its success. The Cards, which can be obtained from your own Club Secretary, are for all Members of our affiliated Clubs and are provided within the cost of the annual affiliation fee. Presentation of the card will give you discounted green fees at a large number of Clubs throughout England.
A County wide programme of events will be arranged in our Centenary year, 2020, but before then we are keen to receive information, photos and anecdotes from our constituent Clubs and County players to go towards our Centenary publication.
We always welcome any suggestions to improve our communication links or the services we provide. If you do have any suggestions to make, please contact our new County Secretary, Peter Whitehead.
I wish you every golfing success in the coming year.
Christopher Moore - County President 2018.
