The Lorettonian Society

Founded in 1927, The Old Lorettonian Golfing Society predates, and is a Society separate from, the Lorettonian Society. The Society's aim is to promote and administer the playing of reasonably competitive golf for OLs - whatever their golfing ability. All Old Lorettonians are eligible to join and the Society has its own Constitution and Committee. There are currently about 250 members, 4 honorary members and 10 honorary life members.

There is no entry fee and the annual subscription is £30. A Membership Application Form and Bankers Order may be found here.

OLGS Matches are played, usually at Muirfield or Prestwick in the North and at a number of different, excellent courses in the South, such as Denham, Royal Ashdown Forest and Worplesdon, against other public schools' golfing societies. There is also an annual match against the School at Muirfield for "Maxie's Tassie"

Teams also represent the Society in the Halford Hewitt Tournament at Deal and Sandwich, the Grafton Morrish Tournament at Hunstanton and Brancaster, the Anniesland Trophy at Denham, various Scottish Wayfarers meetings, and the Queen Elizabeth Coronation Schools Tournament at Barnton. These tournaments tend to be for the lower handicap golfer but the other matches are broader in scope.
