Welcome to the Durham County Golf Union


As the men's Governing Body of amateur golf in County Durham, the Durham County Golf Union devotes its resources primarily to the administration of county championships and team competitions as well as county teams and coaching programmes.


The DCGU is affiliated to England Golf, the country's National Governing Body of amateur golf and carries out course measurement and slope rating duties on their behalf across the 43 affiliated clubs in County Durham. Th County Body acts as the area authority for the R&A Rules of Golf and Rules of Handicapping.


The County Secretary acts as registrar for the County Membership Scheme and administrator of the County Card scheme, which provide affiliated club members with benefits such as the privilege of playing in County Salver competitions and discounted green fees.All enquiries regarding either scheme should be addressed to the County Secretary.


The County Seniors Section is run independently, with its own Council, rules and  competitions. The Seniors Section do not have any administrative responsibilities regarding the County Membership and County Card schemes. The Seniors County Secretary acts as registrar for the County Seniors Members section, which provides affiliated club members, who have paid their Seniors Section membership fee, the opportunity to play in the 4 seniors members annual competitions.  


Through its involvement with the County Golf Development Group, the DCGU supports the county's affiliated clubs in the recruitment and retention of new golfers of all ages into the regular participation and membership.
