Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs

Historical Archive  

The Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs was formed on 23rd November, 1920.

We celebrated our Centenary a year later than planned in 2021 due to Covid 19 restrictions.
A book to mark the Centenary was published early in 2021. It can be purchased via the County Secretary. We also created a digital archive which we intend to augment with new material as it is unearthed. If you have any material that relates to Cheshire golf we'd be delighted to hear from you. Please email our archivist, Jerry Dixon 

You can view the archive here.
