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!
Darenth Valley 2015
A large crowd of 24 golfers returned to one of Irons' favourite Sunday events - Darenth Valley in Kent. The weather, although cloudy, was an enjoyable mix of sunshine and shade and the temporatue was fairly warm. These good conditions are reflected in the scores with an impressive 14/24 players scoring 30 points or more.

Andrew G continued his good run of form with a solid round of 81 for 38 points and his first Sunday event win! Ken C and Ash C took 2nd/3rd rounds on countback from a total of four players on 35.
The Longest Drive went to Peter Hr who managed to combine good + fairway unlike most other players! Ewan won the nearest the pin on the last by a very small amount that was measured out! Steve I's consolation was that he had an impressive two twos - there were five twos in total (Steve I, Steve I, Steve P, Ash C, Tomas B).
Well played all. See you at the next event in Oxfordshire.
