Manchester & District Golf Alliance


Welcome to the Manchester & District Golf Alliance website. We have tried to make navigating the site a little bit easier for everyone. All information relating to competitions is available on the Competitions section of the site.


The Manchester and District Golf Alliance was formed 1924 and is reputed to be the largest of its kind in the Country. In the current year there are 114 affiliated clubs.

The primary purpose of the Alliance is to promote friendship through golf. Members of all affiliated clubs are very welcome at all Alliance events.

The Alliance runs weekly events throughout the winter. This is when clubs are comparatively quiet. The betterball format is always popular, with professionals also scoring their individual card in their pursuit of the valuable Order of Merit. Fields are well subscribed every week with an excellent standard of golf. The competitions provide a competitive atmosphere for the professional and keen amateur to keep an edge to their game in winter.

Throughout the golf season the Alliance runs inter-club knockout competitions. These are always highly popular and keenly contested. The 'blue riband' event, the Dunham Forest Trophy, is the largest of its kind in the country

Our moto "Friendship through golf" forms the basis of everything that we do. With an impressive list of affiliated clubs there is something for everyone. Take a look at the Clubs page for golfing near you.
