Welcome to The Horticultural Golfing Society

HGS Annual Event 2017 - Biarritz 

Our week in Biarritz was a huge success and everyone who attended had a wonderful week. The Hotel was excellent and the golf courses were a triumph depsite being a little wet underfoot from the intermittent heavy showers. Biarritz itself has lots to offer and has a huge selection of very good restaurants. For anyone who has never golfed in the area I'm sure that the members who attended will confirm that the golf courses we played were exceptional. The winners are all mentioned in the results page.

Our next events are the NFU Match at The Buckinghamshire on 5th October and the 2 x day Autumn Meeting at Hanbury Manor 10th -11th October so for all of those who would like to attend please contact our Secretary Merv Foulds ASAP:  mervfoulds@hotmail.com

HGS 2017 Annual Event



The Horticultural Golfing Society was founded in 1929.

Since then so many events have changed our lives and our golf. There have been wars, changes in how we travel and there have been immense changes in how we contact and communicate with each other, both in business and socially. In golf, our equipment, clothing and buggies to ride on are all so different to 1929. 

Today the HGS still play golf on some of the finest golf courses in the world. We enjoy good company, good food and probably tell the same jokes. We are proud of our past but embrace change and look forward to the future.

If you share our passion for Horticulture & Golf why not contact us and enquire about membership?



The Society was formed in 1929, 75% of the membership coming from the horticultural sector and allied industries and the remaining 25% are friends of those horticultural members. New members must be proposed and seconded by members and must have an official club handicap of 28 or less.There is an annual subscription, currently £25.00.The society has a tie sporting the society logo of a red rose.During the year we organize eight fixtures from April through to early November.  One day meetings when we play either 18 or 36 holes. On two occasions during the year we play an afternoon 18holes, then after dinner/bed/breakfast, a morning 18 holes. The UK locations are specially selected to provide high quality and value for money, such as Woodhall Spa, The Berkshire and Walton Heath.  There are ten impressive trophies to be won through the course of the year.  Each year the society organizes a four day ‘away trip’ for members, partners and guests once a year. These venues are far from the usual locations and often abroad, examples are: La Baule-France, Portrush-Ireland and Waterloo-Belgium. This year the Society will visit Biarritz in the South of France (Click the link below to see the PDF Brochure). Guests & new members are especially invited.         

 If you would like more information please contact our secretary.
