The Leicestershire & Rutland Golf Union compete in the Anglian League and the Eastern Inter Counties Foursomes on an annual basis

The L&RGU First Team won the Anglian League in 2016 under the captaincy of Oli Willson (Longcliffe). This gave the L&RGU their second ever 'double' of Anglian League and Eastern Counties Foursomes following their counterparts of 1995. The L&RGU have now won the Anglian League on 14 occasions, bettered only by Lincolnshire (18).

The L&RGU Second Team last won their league in 2017 under the captaincy of John Fairbrother (Cosby). The previous league win for the seconds came in 2010 when Stuart Marriott (Birstall) was the team captain. The L&RGU have won the Second Team League 11 times, again only bettered by Lincolnshire (15).

The 2016 victory in the Eastern Counties Foursomes was the 9th time that the L&RGU have won this particular event - the leaders in this tournament are Berks, Bucks & Oxon (BB&O) with 10 wins, Hertfordshire (11) and again Lincolnshire (14).

Three counties have done the double of Anglian League and Eastern Counties - Cambridgeshire (2013), L&RGU (1995 and 2016) and Lincolnshire (1975, 2004, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2015).

Those three counties have also achieved the treble (Anglian League, Second Team League and Eastern Counties) - Cambridgeshire in 2013, L&RGU in 1995 and Lincolnshire in 2004 & 2009.
