Cheshire

Covering an area of just under a thousand square miles, and with a population of around one million people, Cheshire is a largely rural county that sits between the hills of North Wales and the Peak District of Derbyshire. Due to the proximity of Liverpool and Manchester, a sizeable number of Cheshire residents commute to these big cities from affluent areas in the county.

Over 100 golf clubs are members of the Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs, which itself is affiliated to the Northern Counties Group, a body comprising the six most northerly golf unions in England, along with the Isle of Man. The Cheshire Union does a fine job organizing annual competitions for boys, men and senior men within the county and its representative men’s team has won the Northern Counties league on four occasions since 1990.

The Cheshire County Ladies’ Golf Association came into being in 1949, some twenty-nine years after male golfers in the county formed their golf union. Today, the association organises a number of competitions throughout the season for members of its 99 affiliated clubs. It also selects representative teams for inter county matches as well as running a busy Junior section which is geared to developing young female talent in the county.

There are many fine inland courses to be found in Cheshire – including Delamere Forest and Sandiway – but the Royal Liverpool links at Hoylake on The Wirral is far and away the top track in the county. One of only nine courses currently on the Open rota, it first hosted the famed championship back in 1897. Following a 39-year absence, the event returned to Hoylake for the 11th time in 2006 and it was held over the links again in 2014.
