Welcome to the Dorset County Golf Union (DCGU), promoting and developing the Amateur game in Dorset on behalf of all our affiliated clubs and members.
County Golf news, results, fixtures and other county matters including details of our Member Clubs can be found here.
The DCGU was founded in 1923 and exists to represent golfers in the County, to promote the game of golf and is the link between Clubs and England Golf which amongst its responsibilities includes the application of the World Handicap System.
KEEP UP TO DATE WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON AT DORSET COUNTY GOLF
The Executive Committees of Dorset County Golf Union (DCGU) and Dorset Ladies County Golf Association (DLCGA) have unanimously agreed to explore county golf unification. Both Committees view unification as a positive initiative and are being supported by England Golf.
A working party with equal representation from both Committees has been established and is considering the benefits for golf in the county prior to consultation with member clubs. Once completed, Dorset would join the 9 counties who have already unified in England to date, becoming a role model for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity.
These discussions are at an early stage, but we feel it is important that this is an inclusive and collaborative process and welcome comments from affiliated clubs and all stakeholders. Communications should be directed to our respective secretaries.
