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 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. 

We welcome both ladies and men and 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

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. 

Some events are purely social and for fun, whilst other events include golf, competition and prizes, plus food &/or accommodation as detailed on the actual event posting - you must sign up for each event on this website and pay the appropriate deposit. See individual listings for venue & cost details. 

Where We Play

We welcome both ladies and men and 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. 

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.
