Staffordshire Golf Home Page
Brocton Hall Golf Club Host to the 2012 Staffordshire Amateur Championship
Welcome to the Home Page of the GOLFINSTAFFS web site.
This is the official site of the Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs Ltd (The Union).
The Union exists to promote golf in the County and to provide competition for the top county players as a route to Midland and International golf.
In addition the Union represents the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU) in respect of Handicaps. Golf Clubs that are affiliated to the Union are authorised to operate the unified Handicapping System as adopted by The English Golf Union (E.G.U) and the English Womens Golf Association (E.W.G.A).
The Union was formed in 1923 and can boast many top golfers among its alumni, most recently, David Gilford, David Lynn, Simon Wakefield and Robert Rock, all of whom are currently members of the European Tour.
The County can also claim seven Walker Cuppers including Geoffrey Marks, OBE who, in 1987, captained the victorious side at Peachtree, where GB&I recorded their first victory on US soil.
This web site has been developed to appeal to all golfers in Staffordshire, whether members of an affiliated club or not, as a window on the golfing world and in the hope that it will encourage more people to take up the game and enjoy the social environment of a golf club, the organised competition and official handicap status.
A CONGU handicap is required to enter any club competition and can only be obtained through membership of a club affiliated to the Union.
This site aims to provide information on golf in Staffordshire through news items and details of competitions run by the Union for Juniors, Men and Senior Men.
For those wishing to enquire about club membership contact details are provided under the Clubs section.
The Union also runs a Membership Scheme which stages three competitions per year played as a Rye Greensome. These competitions are great fun and very well supported. As membership numbers are subject to a limit a waiting list may be in operation.
