The Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs (SUGC) was set up in 1923 to promote golf in the County and to provide competition for top County players of all age groups as a route to Midland, National and International golf. Although this principle is still held today, due to the fast paced world that we now live in, the Union is changing accordingly.
In addition the Union represents the World Handicap System (WHS) in respect of Handicaps. Golf Clubs that are affiliated to the Union are authorised to operate the WHS as adopted by England Golf. A WHS handicap index is required to enter any club competition and can only be obtained through membership of a club affiliated to the Union.
