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
***N.B. Sign in as a BLAGSS member to see full details of each event ***
We run a variety of events throughout the year; some 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. We welcome everyone to play, regardless of ability, and will support you! We're creating 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.
