The rural county of Worcestershire is located in the West Midlands of England with a population of just over half a million people. Many’s the Welsh rarebit, Caesar salad or Bloody Mary cocktail that’s been flavoured by a few drops from a Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce bottle – and the condiment has been made in Worcester since 1837.
The Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs was founded in 1905 – two years after the ladies had formed their own county association – to look after the interests of male golfers. Nine clubs attended the inaugural meeting of the County Union and today there are 34 affiliated clubs.
Worcestershire & Herefordshire Ladies’ County Golf Association continues to promote the game to female golfers in the region, regardless of their age or ability, and events that the association organise are intended to bring lady golfers together in a social environment, with competitions conducted in the best spirit of the game.
Worcestershire is one of ten Unions in membership of the Midland Golf Union and its representative team has an indifferent record in Midland Qualifying for the EGU County Championships, winning only 6 of the 60 events contested since 1955.
