The Peak District Christian Golf Society is loosely based in the Peak District of Derbyshire, however, membership not restricted to those living in the area and we have a good proportion of our membership from mid-Nottinghamshire. Guests are also welcome - come and join us.

We welcome back Richard Moore-Coulson.


Our Captain from April 2022 is Graham Barnes and his chosen charity for 2023 is Nottingham University's Dementia Research Project. Download a leaflet about the project here.


Covid-19 played havoc with our Summer 2020 and Winter 2020/21 fixtures - with our managing only 3 outings in total - inbetween lockdowns - and being very restricted on the important social aspect of our Society Golf. 2021 was much kinder to us and we managed most of our normal Summer and Winter activities. 2022 was "back to normal".
