Engineering Golfing Society
About the Society
The Society, established in 1907 by the Presidents of the Institutions of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, enables professional engineers with a love of golf to meet in congenial surroundings. It is one of the oldest Golfing Societies in Britain. All Chartered Engineers are eligible for membership, provided they are already members of a recognised golf club. The committee has the discretion to elect up to forty other engineers (or the overseas equivalent), engineering graduates and exceptional candidates who belong to a golf club and whose working life is or has been concerned at a senior level with professional engineering in its widest sense.  We also welcome guests to the meetings and the committee has the discretion to elect a limited number of non-engineers as Associate Members. 

Although initiated and administered in London, the Society has always drawn members from across the whole of Britain and has had meetings at courses throughout the country. Sporting rivalry has resulted in an annual North versus South match which is today contested in July at Formby Golf Club in Lancashire, with the losing side paying for wine at the following dinner.

The original 1907 annual subscription was 5s.0d, while the entry fee for most meetings was 7s.6d. The costs have had to rise to meet modern conditions and the annual subscription stands at just £20, which includes a contribution to the overall prize fund.

Much more on the history of the Society can be found on our history page.
