Welcome to the IRONS GOLF SOCIETY website.
We are a friendly and competitive society of gay and lesbian golfers, of all ages and levels of skill. We presently have nearly 70 paid-up members.
We hold monthly meetings between March and October, usually on a Sunday, at courses in and around the M25 area. These meetings are usually attended by between 20 and 30 golfers. The usual cost for each event is between £30 and £40, which includes the golf and the prize fund.
We have a few longer meetings each year when we go further afield. In 2013 we visited Estepona, Torquay, South Wales and Bournemouth. In the past we have been to Normandy, Carolina and Italy.
A number of our members live in Pattaya (Thailand) either all or part of the year and are frequently joined by members from the UK on holiday. It is generally possible to organise a game with Irons members.
The Society itself is a member of the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation and five of our members took part in the 2011 Gay Eurogames in Rotterdam. James and Ariela won gold medals in their respective divisions. James also took a bronze in the overall gross competition while Helen, Martin W and Adrian did well in their divisions.
We hold a knockout matchplay competition throughout the year with matches played either at our normal events or with competitors making their own arrangements. We also have a trophy for the aggregate best five results at our monthly meetings.
