Enter one of our 2019 competitions for Local Golfers!
We are the Balfour & Houldsworth Golf Challenge Cup Committee and our purpose is to encourage and promote amateur golf within a 25 mile radius of Manchester Town Hall.
Originally the radius was set to 20 miles by our founders Hon A.J. Balfour and Sir William Henry Houldsworth in 1897.
We now organise four top-class competitions for amateur golfers each year, drawn from the 171 golf clubs within the 25-mile radius.
We don't have a home course but select the venues from invitations kindly received from local golf clubs.
The host clubs for the following year are selected at our AGM, which is usually held at the end of October each year, and the venues are decided by a ballot of all the attendees.
Our committee are all volunteers from various local golf clubs.
Please take a look at our website, book into one of our competitions online and hopefully we will see you at one or more of our events or maybe at our AGM.
If your club is interested in hosting one of our events please just contact our secretary, David Haley. firstname.lastname@example.org
