Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs

 Welcome to the Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs.

The Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs was founded in 1920, and represents 94 clubs within the County, providing knowledge and expertise to support them all.

We are able to offer particular advice and support on a number of topics including handicaps, rules of golf and Course standard scratch ratings.
