The Arran Ladies Golf Union (ALGU) was established in 1972 for lady golfers who live on Arran and hold a handicap at one of the Islands golf courses.  As a member of one of the subscribed Island's Golf Courses, you are automatically entitled to play in the ALGU.  Each club on the Island pays a 'nominal' annual fee (c £30) to the ALGU and each player pays a small entry fee for each competition (c£6).  The ALGU welcomes all ladies and has a calendar of matches throughout the Autumn and Winter to suit all abilities.  If you would like to know more about our competitions please look at 'our competitions' on the menu. 

Only clubs affiliated to the LGU can hold qualifying competitions and as the ALGU is not affiliated we can have our own rules.  

As most of our ALGU competitions are held in winter and we are concerned about the numbers of ladies entering the competitions, we have opted to run the Drumadoons ourselves.  

As we are not affililated with the LGU these competitions are non-counting.

The only two ALGU competitions that are 'counting, are the Cir Mhor and the Flockhart Torphy.  These are run by the host club, of which the ALGU assist eg an Open Day.   This keeps is within the rules of the LGU.
