Welcome to the homepage of the Irons Golf Society. We are a group of gay and lesbian golfers based in London but 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!
At the first event of the 2015 season we played at a very wet & windy Farleigh Court Golf Club. 24 golfers braved the conditions, with the majority managing to finish a very challenging round (due to the weather). 7/24 players managed to hit the magic 30 points. Conditions were hampered further by hallow-tined greens...but at least the uneven surface kept the balls on the green in the howling wind!
|Malcolm G (9)||34 points|
|Steve I (11)||33|
|Steve P (18)||33|
|Peter Hr (14)||30|
|Will P (22)||30|
New players David L and Das C also scored 35 and 32 points respectively but were ineligible this time around.
The winners of the playing prizes were:
- Nearest the Pin: Loes S - new player
- Longest Drive: Malcolm G
In the new optional 2s competition we had just one 2! So Captain Steve I managed to bag all the cash.. £44.
