Many clubs have considered their legal status. The Q&A below document covers some of the pros and cons of incorporation and might be helpful to clubs considering changing status from an Unincorporated Association to a Limited Company.
This guidance has been prepared for Scottish Golf Union by DLA Piper Solicitors. This guidance is general in nature and is not intended to provide legal advice for any particular situation.

The Directors Responsibilities document published by the Corporate Responsibility Coalition serves to explain many of these responsibilities.
