The Sheffield Union of Golf Clubs organises inter-club competition leagues for men.
The main league, playing matchplay off scratch with teams of four players, has been running since 1967 and there are 5 divisions each with up to 7 participating clubs. Home and away matches are played each summer with all other teams in the division. Fixtures are published for the season and most matches are held at 17:00 on Wednesdays. At the end of the season two teams from each division are promoted and two are relegated.
The Sheffield Union also organises a league aimed at men with handicaps of 6 to 18. Teams comprise 8 players, playing foursomes matchplay. There are 4 divisions each with 7 participating clubs. Matches are arranged between the clubs so there is no standard weekly match day across the league.
