The society was formed in 1959 when two meetings a year were held. This has now increased to five events to which all Old Grammarians and associated members of the society are welcome. The society also encourages members to bring guests to the meetings. The society aims to play some of the best courses in the Home Counties and to provide enjoyable social golf for players of all abilities and handicaps.

Program for 2024

27th MarchCoulsdon Court GC21 players competed for the Rowland Jones trophy. Unfortunately the weather was awful – horrible rain and wind, which meant that only half of the players were strong enough to complete the 18 holes, but despite all that, it was great to get together again and see a few old friendly faces. Thanks must go to Peter Bowden who helped to organise a very good deal at Coulsdon Court GC. We had 3 guests and one of them, Paul Jackiewicz, playing off only 6.6, came in with a superb 37 points, to win the day.
The highest scoring OG was his dad, Tony Jackiewicz who came second with 35 points to win the trophy. Third was Steve Gardiner with 32 points.
Alan Brown did his Captain’s drive-in and Keith Povah and Steve Batley shared the sweepstake prize. Nearest the Pin was won by Dave Garrard.
A very enjoyable day and a great start to the last official year of the OGGS, but encouraging that so many members just want to keep on meeting up and playing !
23/24th MaySeaford GCThe OG Golf Society met at Seaford on 23 & 24 May. A traditional 2 day annual meeting, normally held April/May time.
We had 16 golfers on both days, forming 2 teams (Captain v Treasurer).
Over the 2 days, the Treasurer’s team won easily 8.5 v 3.5. Denis Bowden won the first day with 37 points and Steve Batley won the second day on countback with 33 points.
Steve Batley won the EGGS trophy with the top score over the 2 days. Gary Blackburne came second.
As always a thoroughly enjoyable event, especially when the weather was glorious. Lovely views over the coast, a very good course in excellent condition and a few beers sitting on the terrace in the sunshine.
We have been going to Seaford for over 30 years now. Long may it continue.
