A Few Facts

There are 96 golf clubs in Cheshire and 90 or so have junior sections

The County sends a team of 6 to the EGU Northern Counties Group Boys Championship, the winners of which qualify for the annual EGU Boys Finals. Cheshire has been English Champions in the past and has also qualified for these Finals on a number of other occasions

Every year a team of 8 players from Cheshire competes against Lancashire, Nottinghamshire and a combined team from Shropshire and Herefordshire in the ‘’round-robin’’ Four Counties Junior Tournament.  Cheshire have a record number of victories in the event.  Spectators are most welcome.

The County plays full Boys matches (up to 18 years old) against Lancashire and Yorkshire. Additionally, there are mixed-age matches against Derbyshire, North Wales, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Shropshire & Herefordshire, and Staffordshire together with an annual match against Cheshire Girls

Each year the County holds a Junior Club Team Championship.  This is usually played at Chester Golf Club on the last Thursday in May.

During 2018:

  •   Josh Turnock (Prestbury) was County Boys Champion
