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!
Pine Ridge 2015
Fifteen golfers met at Pine Ridge on a good day for golf. Generally, everyone seems to have played badly on the front nine and very well on the back nine. The biggest improver was John D with 13 front 24 back! Generally the scores were very good: (here I just show those who met the Irons norm of 30 points)
|Gonzague N||28.0 (28)||44||1st|
|Dave H||12.7 (13)||38||2nd|
|Peter Hr||13.5 (14)||38||3rd|
|John D||27.7 (28)||37|
|Andrew G||10.9 (11)||35|
|John Cf||9.2 (9)||34||2!|
|Takashi S||20.8 (21)||34|
|Ken C||12.7 (13)||33|
|Das C||28.0 (28)||33|
|Ewan H||20.6 (21)||33|
|Steve I||11.5 (12)||31||NP|
Superb play from Gonzague has ensured his first Irons win - and a corresponding handicap cut! Dave H played wonderfully on the back nine (23 points, gross 38) and just a pity he three putted the last for par. The longest drive went to Karen M (new player) with an excellent effort. Nearest the pin went to Steve I.
The luck of the Irish... John Cf managed to snare a 2 with a long putt and with it the large rollover pot. Congrats!
