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 welcome both women & men with or without handicaps (we run our own society handicap system), so you don't need to be a club member to compete. Events are held at a variety of courses around the Brighton area, and sometimes farther afield, including weekends away. We also aim to hold events that cater for those newer to golf as well as more experienced.
How We Play
***N.B. Sign in as a BLAGSS member to see full details of each event ***
There's a variety of events throughout the year; competitive, social and for fun, whilst other include prizes, plus food &/or accommodation as detailed on the actual event posting. We welcome everyone to play, regardless of ability, and will support you! We've created a pathway from beginner (Beginner & Rusty Irons lessons, Pitch & Putt, Range balls) through to expert (9 & 18 hole events, plus bigger competitions) , from those who only have an hour to spare, to those who want to go away and play for 3 days!
Many events require a sign up, although this isn't always necessary for some of the more 'social' activities. See each event below & sign up on this website, where necessary, for each event and pay any appropriate deposit. See individual listings for venue & cost details. 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. If you want to see some more detail about events that have happened, look at expired articles (link on upper right of page)...

Back by popular demand; our series of lessons for both those completely new to golf, and to those who have dabbled before but want to return or get a bit better! The lessons cost £30 for 5 sessions plus course time, and will be on the following Sundays, 17th & 24th Feb plus 3rd, 10th & 17th March. The sessions will take place from 11:45-12:45, 1-2 & 2.15 - 3.15.

*** Part of our 'portfolio' of golfing activities is the chance to knock a ball round the Pitch & Putt course at Roedean (on the coast road overlooking the Marina). A group of our committed newbies head to Roedean on a regular basis, led by Jane, Nicky and Vicky. The events are on various days and times, so please always look here for the upcoming dates / times.
New golfers and their friends are very welcome to come along to these sessions. We meet in the cafe first and then split into small groups to pay the course. There's usually some players with slightly more experience to help you and give some tips, so don't worry if you've not played before. The emphasis is on the social, but its also a really good chance to improve.
Upcoming dates are; Thurs 28th Feb, Weds 6th, Thurs 14th, Fri 22nd & Tues 26th March.
All at Roedean at 11am Cost £5.50 for 'seniors' or £6.50 if you're young! Add an extra £1 if you need to hire clubs
