BLAGSS Golf is an LGBT golf society, with a range of golfers from beginners to low handicappers. Our group's aim is to be welcoming, friendly and supportive, regardless of your ability. We just want more LGBT people to play golf!
We operate a handicap system, which enables those who are not members of a Golf Club to have a Society handicap and ensures fairness for our golf days and competitions.
Forthcoming Events (please note in your diary and check out below for more information - members, please log in, non-members, please contact Lorraine email@example.com for more info):
Our events welcome both ladies and men and are held at a variety of courses around the Brighton area, and sometimes farther afield, including a weekend away. We also aim to hold events that cater for those newer to golf as well as more experienced.
If you would like to come along to play, register your interest on any of the events below and/or ask to join the BLAGSS Golfers Forum Facebook page, which we'll also be using to organize other games and social events throughout the year.

BLAGSS Annual Quiz Night
Are you up for a challenge? I believe you are... Do you enjoy pitting your wits again the other BLAGSS sections? I certainly do.... Do you think us golfers can maintain our record of a top 3 finish each year? I think so... especially as we have a good laugh and an excellent social evening out!
So... we'd like to enter a team, or even two, again this year for the BLAGSS quiz night, Sunday 27th Nov, 7pm at Camelford Arms. We need teams of 6, and there's a cost of £2 per player which covers a small selection of snacks and a donation to Mind Out.
If you're willing to meet the challenge, please sign up here.
Sign up a.s.a.p. to guarantee your place on the team.
Autumn Weekend Away
Friday 4th November - Sunday 6th Nov - Gatton Manor Golf Club (not far past Horsham, about 50 mins drive from Brighton)
A slightly different twist on our traditional weekend away. We've managed to get hold of a great deal and are proposing the following...
Come for either 3 days/2 nights for £155, or 2 days/1 night for £85
Both will include all golf (same no of rounds as the days you're coming for), bed & breakfast in the Clubhouse rooms (upgrades are possible, as are single rooms - both approx £20pppn; just ask me) and a 2 course meal each evening. The price also includes all prizes (the BLAGSS Autumn Bowl competition will take place over the Saturday and Sunday rounds, so the Friday round will be a friendly event, with separate prizes.
£50 deposit needed for this event when you sign up. Full payment needed 6 weeks before the weekend, please
Please register your intent here and then make a payment to BLAGSS Golf Society.
NEW - Spring trip
Friday 31st March - Sunday 2nd April 2017 - Dorset Golf & Country Club (near Wareham, Dorset; about 2½ hours drive away)
Another suggestion for a twist on our traditional weekend away. How about a trip a bit further afield, to the lovely rolling hills of Dorset. What a way to start the 2017 golf season off!
Come for either 3 days/2 nights for £175, or 2 days/1 night for £90
Both will include all golf (same no of rounds as the days you're coming for), Dinner (3 courses), bed & breakfast.
The price also includes all prizes (competition will take place over the Saturday and Sunday rounds, so the Friday round will be a friendly event, with separate prizes) Maybe we'll introduce a Spring Cup?!
The stay here is in gorgeous 5* Scandinavian wooden lodges, including sauna, TV, Log burner etc! Each lodge has 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms (some twin/some double), all with en-suite, and each lodge has its own kitchen plus huge living room, and balcony overlooking the woodlands.http://www.dorsetgolfresort.com/resort-village/log-homes/
We could do self catering, which works out cheaper (closer to £120 each, but I would need to confirm this as it will depend on the numbers taking this option, and we'd need to fill each lodge). This includes accommodation & golf
When you register your intent, please just e-mail me to let me know the following...
- Are you definitely going to come? or just showing an interest at this stage?
- Would you prefer to look at al inclusive or self catering?
- How many nights you wish to come for 2 nights or 1?
- What type of room you'd prefer; twin or double (inc in price), or whether you want a single room (cost tbc, but not as cheap as the Gatton Manor trip)?
- If you're a definite; who you'd prefer to share a room with?
£50 deposit needed for this event when you sign up. Full payment needed 8 weeks before the weekend (i.e. by end Jan), please.
Please register your intent here and then make a payment to BLAGSS Golf Society. See separate note on Blagss golf page re all payments for events. Prompt payments are much appreciated!
