The English Golf Union is the governing body for men's and boys' amateur
golfin England. It represents over 1,900 golf clubs with over 740,000 members and is affiliated to the R&A, which is the global governing body of golf outside the United Statesand Mexico.
The English Golf Union was founded in 1924 and is based at the
National Golf Centrein Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. It is a non-profit making organisation and is funded mainly by affiliation fees paid by golfers as part of their club membership fee. It organises individual and team championships for all age groups from boys to seniors, including the flagship English Amateur Championship (a match playevent), and the English Open Amateur Stroke PlayChampionship (the Brabazon Trophy). (It should be noted however that these events are less prestigious than the equivalent events run on an all-Britain & Ireland basis by the R&A.) It also runs the handicappingsystem for men's golf in England and works to increase the interest and participation in golf among adults and juniors.
