Golf NEWS from England and Wales ➤

In 1986, we began our Regional Golf Newspapers to bring you the best in local club news from England and Wales. Golf NOW continues to build on this tradition through our website. To discover the news from your region please click on the regions on the left. If you have hosted a charity day then please tell us about it. Maybe your club championships were last weekend, you have new facilities installed in your clubhouse or even that lifelong member Patrick scored his fifth hole-in-one this morning? Whatever your news, please send us your story to:

We look forward to spreading your word!


Has you daughter ever looked up at you while you are packing your bag for your society day with a big grin on your face and asked, “What’s it all about?”

Girls Golf Rocks is taking place in 26 counties across England, offering free taster sessions, girls-only coaching courses and the chance for girls to get out and play. In 2018, 21 counties got involved and over 1600 girls enjoyed a taste of golf, with many going on to coaching sessions.

The new counties for 2019 are: Cornwall, Hampshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire and Worcestershire. They join Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Gloucestershire, Kent, Leicestershire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Staffordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire.

Next time your pack your bag for your next society day, your daughter will understand why you have that grin!


When we play golf in France, Spain or even Australia (pictured), we cover ourselves in sun cream. Who hasn’t suffered from a burnt back of the neck at one time or another? It can be easy to forget that here in the UK, we can also get sunburnt, even on cloudy days!

“Slip, slap, swing” is a new campaign for sun protection for golfers. Hopefully you have seen a poster about it in your clubhouse. It is organised by the Melanoma Fund and gives you some simple tips to make sure your skin is not at risk from cancer, and of course, your golf doesn’t suffer due to a “greasy grip”.
