THE OLD SHIRBURNIAN GOLFING SOCIETY
Welcome to the website of The Old Shirburnian Golfing Society
The OSGS is open to all Old Shirburnians regardless of age or golfing prowess. There are around 20 matches annually against other school Societies and golf clubs. The majority of the matches are over 36-holes at some of the finest golf clubs in the country. They offer a great opportunity to catch up with friends and renew some old sporting rivalries – in the friendliest of ways.
There are three meetings a year. The Sherborne Meeting in May, which includes a match against the school, the Summer Meeting & AGM at The Berkshire in June, and The Autumn Meeting at Rye GC in September. All great events with numerous prizes on offer.
In addition, there are a number tournaments in which the Society enters a scratch team – the Halford Hewitt, the Grafton Morrish, the Brent Knoll, the Mellin (O-55s) and the Alba Trophy. Any low handicap players who are not aware of these events should get in touch.
Golfers aged under 27, as well as those aged 27–32, are subsidised by the Society. Those under 27 pay a maximum of £30 per day for any match/meeting. In addition, those under 27 pay a maximum of £25 for B&B for any overnight costs. Those 27-32 pay a maximum of £60 per day for any match/meeting. In addition, those who are 27-32 pay a maximum of £35 for B&B for any overnight costs.Click here to go to the joining page
IMPORTANT UPDATE - MARCH 2020- CORONAVIRUS
It is with regret that in light of recent UK Government advice about Coronavirus, the OSGS has cancelled all its golffixtures (matches, meetings and tournaments) up to and including Sun 7th June 2020.
We will be reviewing the situation again towards the end of May, this leaves us with the faint hope that matters will have improved and the Berkshire will be able to host our Summer Meeting and AGM on Wed 10th June (reminder: generous subsidies are in place for this meeting for players of all ages).
Meanwhile, we hope you all stay safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you back out enjoying OSGS golf when it is safe to do so.
