Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber has been in existence for over 200 years – the first association was established in 1813 and became incorporated in 1949. It was borne out of a desire from businesses to meet and trade together. For there to be an organisation to represent the interest of commerce and industry and to ensure that there was a voice for business. There has also been a need for an organisation to deliver services to help businesses to start, grow and succeed.

Staffordshire Chambers continue to deliver this role. It has also developed a wider role with the recognition of the contribution that the business community makes to economic and social success.



The North Staffs and District Golf League covers clubs in Staffordshire and South Cheshire and has a Premier scratch division, 4 handicap divisions and 2 Veterans divisions. In all 46 teams from its 20 member clubs will compete in 2017. In addition to the League program, we have 4 knockout competitions, the JC Scratch, Houghton Salver, Dofsky Cup and EHP Memorial Trophy.

The League over the years has helped nurture a number of European Tour players including David Lynn, Simon Wakefield, Andrew Sandywell and Ryder cup player David Gilford. Many clubs also field County players in their sides to help make this league one of the strongest in the Midlands and in terms of playing numbers one of the largest in the country. 

The North Staffs and District Golf league has extended from its original format in the 1980’s when the then 10 local golf clubs entered first and second teams to play in two divisions. These days with promotion and relegation from each division, it makes the leagues extremely competitive.

We are pleased to have Quality Golf Destinations Limited as the league’s main sponsor’s again for the 2017 season. This is their fifth year as our main sponsor. As a locally based golf tour operator and members of IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour operators) and Golf Tourism England they are an ideal partner for the League, please ask them for a quote when planning your next golf trip.

The new season starts in April 2017, please visit the website regularly for the latest information and updates.

Brian has been a PGA Professional since 1991 and has been a full-time coach for over 15 years, in that time he has given thousands of hours of lessons to players of varying standards from complete beginners to players with tour experience. His desire to help people improve their golf has encouraged Brian to keep learning about the golf swing and he believes that by applying a certain set of easy to follow fundamentals anyone can build a better golf game regardless of age or ability. 

Brian says… 

“The first thing we must do is clearly identify and explain the task and then give the player the correct tools to achieve that. When this is done a good golf game is very achievable using natural instinct and ability. This allows the player to concentrate fully on the shot to be played and not the mechanics of the swing” 

Brian is currently based at Dukes Meadows in West London, a fantastic place to learn and play golf for all levels of golfer from complete beginner to professional. The facility boasts a full length 50 bay floodlit driving range open until 10 p.m. a 9 hole par 3 golf course, 5 hole academy course, dedicated short game area, 9 hole putting green and a state of the art private coaching bay for video/computer analysis.
