PGS is a local golf society that organises golf days, usually monthly, throughout the area. The majority of golf days consist of coffee and a bacon roll on arrival, followed by 18 holes of golf with a prize presentation and drink to finish. We have members of all ages and standards ranging from single figure handicappers to beginners. Nobody feels out of place or embarrassed at their standard of golf, our aim is to have an enjoyable round of golf with a few laughs thrown in. Pershore Golf Society is a great way to meet new golfers and play a selection of courses throughout the year.
How did it start?
The society was formed in 1994 by a group of occasional golfers as a means to increase their golf without necessarily being members of an individual club.
How does it run?
The Society is administered by a committee that meets regularly every few months at Pershore Gents Club. All members are welcome to attend, as the society is run by the members for the members with the emphasis on good golf and social events, good camaraderie and above all good fun.
How many members are there?
Today, membership is over fifty and the Society continues to flourish. Membership of the English Golf Union allows handicaps to be administered properly.
Does it go anywhere else?
The society hosted their first international match against The Royal Amicable Golf Club, Anderlecht at Cleeve Hill Golf Club in Gloucestershire in 1997. A return fixture was organised for the following year and a coach load headed to Belgium. Connections were also established with Pershore’s twin towns of Bad Neustadt and Plouay and a small party of members and guests travelled to Neustadt for a match in 2001.
Each year we have a different Captain. They run each golf day and organise a sweep for the winner on the day.
