Welcome to The Horticultural Golfing Society

Woodhall Spa & Seacroft

A fantastic time was had by all at this years opening event. Woodhall Spa was tough but very enjoyable as always and the course looked very different this year after lots of trees have been removed in an attempt to return the course to the "heathland course" it was in the very beginning. It will be very interesting to see it in 12 months time when the work is complete and the course has fully recovered. Seacroft was a great success for those who attended. Albeit the weather conditions were against us (cold and misty for the front nine) the course really lived up to our expectations and everyone who played is very keen to see it on our future fixture lists. The winners over the 3 days can be found on the Results page.

Our objective is simple:

1. To play the finest golf courses in the UK & Europe   

2.  Have fun with like minded people in our Society


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 £30.00 for the 2018 season.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 South West Ireland (Click on the PDF link above to see the itinerary). Guests & new members are especially invited.
