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!

The final Irons event of the year is at one of our favourites - Hoebridge. It offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and the tree foilage. 23 players competed and the scores were good, with 16/23 players hitting the magic 30 points:
|Ash C||4.8 (5)||38||1st|
|Claes Z||32.8 (33)||37||2nd|
|Gene S||12.2 (12)||37||3rd,2!|
|Ken C||13.0 (13)||37|
|Rob H||26.1 (26)||37|
|Malcolm G||9.0 (9)||36|
|Dean J||10.0 (10)||33|
|Steve I||11.1 (11)||33||LD|
|Terry H||28.5 (29)||33|
|Peter Hr||12.9 (13)||32|
|Tom S||13.4 (13)||32|
|Celio L||18.9 (19)||31|
|John D||27.7 (28)||31|
|Ewan H||20.4 (20)||30|
|Dave H||12.7 (13)||30|
|Andrew G||8.9 (9)||30||PBalls|
A gross 75 (+3) from Ash secured the prize, although he did bogey the easy last hole! Claes, Gene, Ken and Rob all hit 37 points and from looking at the cards, had chances to win. Claes takes second from Gene on count-back. Steve I hit a long drive for the longest-drive and David L hit an excellent shot to around 12 feet for the nearest-the-pin. We had two twos - Loes and Gene - who each scoop £44, since it was a multiple round rollover. Andrew secured the President's Balls trophy (annual best five scores) with Peter Hr in second place.
That's it for the year! I'll update the honours board and will post a summary of this season after the matchplay final concludes! Thanks for playing. Andrew.
