Dunscar Golf Club has a thriving Mens’ section with Saturday competitions and several mid-week competitions during the summer season. There are ‘roll-ups’ on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at specific times both in the morning and at lunch time. These offer friendly, yet competitive, golf for all abilities. From November to March our PGA professional, Andy Green, runs a very popular Winter league open to all members.
Dunscar has a thriving Ladies’ section entering teams in the LLCGA Handicap and Bronze Divisions and also the Manchester and District Bell Cup – so whatever your ability or handicap there is a team for you to play in.
Ladies’ competition day is Tuesday, with some also being played on Sundays. The competitions are 18- and 9-hole in the common formats – medal, stableford, fourball, greensome and foursome.
New members are very welcome whether you are a complete beginner or experienced. We offer every new member a mentor from the ladies section who can give support and guidance, if needed, by explaining anything you need to know and giving the encouragement that may enable you to progress. If you are a beginner considering taking up golf why not see our ‘starter offer’ – for £299 you get full ladies’ membership, a set of clubs, shoes and six half-hour lessons from our PGA professional. Whatever your experience, if you are considering joining a new club, please contact us on 01204 303321 because we have the offer for you!

Mixed golf at Dunscar comprises competitions played approximately once a month – mostly on Sundays and in a variety of formats. We also run some ‘fun’ competitions throughout the year, sometimes involving the junior section. These events can be quite competitive but they are definitely friendly, and certainly fun. This is a great place to meet up with and make new friends.
Dunscar also has a mixed team that enters the Archie Preston Trophy each year and has annual home and away matches with Sale Golf Club.
The Junior section is thriving with more than 40 boy and girl members, and growing. The section is run by our PGA professional Andy Green who holds free weekly group lessons during the summer months. There is a junior competition on most Sunday afternoons starting at 1.30 pm. Competitions are over 18 or 9 holes for all ages and abilities on both standard and short courses. The junior team has an annual match against the men’s BGA team, with a dinner and presentation that family members and friends are welcome to join. In 2015 the junior team won the BGA Junior League Championship for the first time in 26 years.
