Golf

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.

N.B. Insurance; It’s worth thinking about taking out golf insurance to cover yourself and your equipment, as golf can be hazardous. A number of insurers  offer reasonably priced cover see below. BLAGSS is not recommending any particular policy just providing information.

Also if you are booking any of our overnight events it's worth checking your holiday insurance will cover you for the usual risks - loss, cancellation etc.

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).

Hi Golfers

Well Autumn is upon us and not long until the clocks change but there are still plenty of opportunities to play golf for all level of players. Please remember to send completed cards to Lorraine our handicap secretary and to update her if your club handicap changes.

First major event up is  our Autumn Weekend at Cottesmore from 8th to 10th November. We have now reserved the dates for our return to Lingfield Park for our  2020 Spring Event - 17th to 19th April - and we will be posting sign up soon.

To find out what's going on keep checking the website and join the What's App Group - Golf A Go Go  - email Sian Jewsbury on golf-dev@blagss.org (including your mobile number). We will continue to offer social and beginner events over the winter but ask you to sign up so our committee hosts know how many intrepid golfers they will have on the day. And please do continue using Whats App to arrange social golf when the fine days come along.

If anybody has suggestions for events or other ways to continue to improve the experience for everyone in BLAGSS Golf then please do get in touch by emailing me at golf@blagss.org

Happy Golfing!! 

Captain Carol
