  • Online entries for DCGU Individual Champions and Handicap Divisional events are now open!!

Latest News


With courses not opening until the end of March, the DCGU Championship Committee have made a decision not to host any of its planned fixtures during April, to enable host clubs to prioritise their members who have seen little golf in recent months.

It is hoped that as many affected fixtures as possible will be rescheduled for later in the season and further details of each will be available on the fixture page in due course.
