The Golf Society of Great Britain (The GSGB) was founded in 1955 with the object of promoting goodwill and providing funds to further the interest of the game in all its aspects.

 It now has about 750 members and a variety of activities described below. The GSGB is a non-profit making association, run by a properly constituted executive committee elected annually by its members.

Meetings and Competitions

The Society has many trophies which are competed for at the 2 day meetings that are held in different locations around England, Scotland and Wales. The images on this page are either from our recent meetings or from courses that we are about to visit.  - see GSGB Meetings for 2017 for 

Participating Clubs

The Society has the support of its Participating Clubs. These clubs include some of the the finest golf courses in the country and allow our members to play at a reduced green fee. See the Participating Clubs here. Understandably there are some restrictions. Members must not live close to the course and need to make arrangements in advance. It is an appreciated privilege of membership but not a right.

Junior Tournaments

The Society sponsors golf tournaments for Junior Golfers who are under 14 on the day of the event. There are six events in 2016. Details can be found by clicking the link.
