Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs
In 1922 Staffordshire was the only Midland County without a County Union yet its members were winners and runners up of the Midland Counties Championship for the previous four years.
It was decided that a County Union should be formed which would promote a County Championship and Matches, a uniform method of handicapping as well as assisting the game of golf in Staffordshire.
To help set this up a meeting was held at the Grand Hotel, Birmingham in May 1923.
Representatives from eight golf attended the meeting and these were Dartmouth, Handsworth, Little Aston, Oxley Park, Penn, Sandwell Park, South Staffordshire and Walsall.
Presently in Staffordshire, there are Forty-seven golf clubs that are affiliated with the Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs, the current Chairman is Mike Entecott who was a Captain at Calderfields Golf and Country Club in 1997 – 1998 and the President from 2000 – 2004
All of the SUoGC-affiliated Golf Clubs have been given a commemorative Centenary Plate to celebrate this milestone.
Congratulations to everyone at the Staffordshire Union on this wonderful achievement.
