The Forty Club Golfing Society

golf_pic Founded in 1956, The Forty Club Golfing Society is only open to members of The Forty Club. Many current cricketers are also golfers and The Forty Club Golfing Society is open to them as well as to those past their cricketing days.
For many, the camaraderie that they have built up over the years whilst playing cricket can continue on the golf course.

The Forty Club Golfing Society has its own Committee and a separate membership fee. The Officers of the Society are elected annually at the Society’s Annual General Meeting and are responsible for the administration and affairs of it.
A fixture list and members’ handbook is issued to all Society members each year.

The membership fee is currently £10.00 – please contact the Society’s Membership Secretary. Click here for application form.

Officers of The Forty Club Golf Society are listed on the Officers page.

There are two main Meetings in the year – the Spring and Autumn (at The Berkshire) are 36 hole foursomes and an entry form is sent out to all Members 8 weeks before the due date.
One Guest per Member is welcome at both Meetings as are ALL Forty Club cricket members.

Normally a Captains Meeting is held which is by invitation only.

There are 38 matches between March and early November – many of which are 36-hole foursomes. Those which have a time against them in the fixture list are usually four ball better ball matches against the home club’s Senior Section. There are also short tours to Scotland, South Wales & the Kent coast; playing major championship courses during all three.

For all the Matches and The Meetings please contact the nominated Match Managers directly either by email, phone or letter – you should be most welcome – their details are listed in the fixture card sent out to members and online below.

If you have any problems don’t hesitate to let The Hon. Golfing Society Secretary know or click here to send an email.
