Welcome to the homepage of the Irons Golf Society. We are a group of gay and lesbian golfers based in London with members all over the UK. We have approximately 60 members with handicaps ranging from 4 to 36.
We play on Sundays over the year on courses around London and also have several residential away trips a year - in 2015 we are going to Torquay, Bournemouth and a weekend event in Oxfordshire. Contact us for more details on joining us for a round!
We visited Aldwickbury in Hertfordshire on a pleasant sunny day in April. 21 players took part. Chis took first prize with an excellent 36 points on very fast and very slopey greens. Just a pity about the last hole. Christine and Das made up second and third places. New player Gonazgue joined us for a round and put together a very good 35 points.
Nearest the pin was Malcolm and Longest drive was John. Nobody obtained a 2 so the 2s prize fund is rolled over to the next Sunday event in June.
