At most of our Meetings guests are very welcome and, typically, 30-40 players are present.

Every 5 years we organise an anniversary event. In 2017 this was held over two days at those superb heathland courses Notts GC (Hollinwell) and Coxmoor GC together with a celebratory dinner.

Between our anniversary events we have organised golf tours to regions outside the SE. In recent years we have visited Cornwall, Devon and Suffolk.

All members of the OIC are very welcome to join the Golf Society. Bona fide club handicaps are preferred, although a society handicap is also welcome.
