A Message From Our President

Sadly another Alliance Season has come to an end. Only three events were lost due to the weather. The attendance at events are, I believe, close to a record.

A big thank you goes to all Professionals and Amateurs alike for supporting the events. Also a big thank you goes to our Sponsors, old and new for your continued support. Without your help we would not be able to offer the prizes that we do.

Congratulations to all winners both in the weekly competitions and the Orders of Merit. The Inter Club Knock-Outs are now in full swing and I wish good luck to each and every one of you.

I would like to say a big thank you to our Secretary Ian Hales and Tournament Administrator, Jim Cunliffe. Without their support and dedication I don’t think we would be where we are now.
Another thank you must go to Geoff Garnett of the press for promoting us throughout the North of England.

Our Captain for 2022/23 will be Scott Jackson from Disley Golf Club. I hope you will all support him in his year of office.

This year will be considering possible events for 2024, our Centenary!

Once again, thank you for supporting the Alliance in our winter competitions. I hope you all have a great golfing season and hope to see you at our first event of the new season on 14th September 2022 at Dunham Forest.
