Alliance History

The Beginning to 2008

This alliance is one of the oldest in the country and can trace its origins back to 1920 and probably earlier. There is a hand-written ledger covering the 1920/30s, and the Spalding Sports Company donated a foursomes Championship trophy in 1923, probably indicating that the alliance was in operation some years previously.

In those early days competitors numbered only 60/70, playing mainly bogey foursomes for a prize fund of approximately £10.

Old records indicate that the first secretary (Fred Craig/Fulwood Park) was appointed in 1919, followed by W. Robertson (West Lancs) (chairman in 1928), J. Bailey (Woolton), Percy Roberts (S.& A.), and in 1927 Bob Nelson (Bowring Park).. To this day, we continue to play for the Nelson Cup which was donated in 1935 by J.C. Taylor (Captain of Hesketh) to commemorate Bob’s services to the Alliance.

Subsequently, records are non-existent other than the names of 3 secretaries, 1936 Bill Gate (Southport), 1939 E. McDowell, and 1946 E. Rimmer (Bootle), but there are no records of events/meetings, presumably not maintained or lost.

It flourished in the years between the wars with its tradition, "club members would take out their club professional for a competitive day's golf"... and continued with a strong membership into the 1950/60/70s. However, it went downhill in the 1980s until the executive decided that action was necessary to reverse the decline.

A new committee was installed, the services of Trevor Rushton as secretary and Bill Yates as treasurer were obtained with the direct intention of improving standards. This was achieved, and Trevor Rushton retired in 1999 when Bill Yates took over the dual role as secretary/treasurer, supported by an energetic and enthusiastic committee.

There are 25/30 host clubs in the area and, partly explaining why the alliance is popular with these clubs, events are played in winter when they are comparatively quiet, receiving good income from green fees, bar and catering receipts on an otherwise quiet midweek day in the "close" season.

Membership is now restricted as numbers invariably exceed 100 at each event, with an excellent standard of golf, and the competitions provide a good competitive atmosphere for the professionals and low handicap amateurs to keep an edge to their games in the winter.

The Alliance is strong enough to compete in the National Alliance Championships , won the trophy in 2003 and 2004, and tied for first place with Manchester Alliance in 2005. (Only third in 2006).
