The Society is in sporting terms “Wanderers” in so far as its members meet up two or three times a year, for the day, at courses in the Home Counties and play competitive rounds, for example, Greensome Foursomes or Stableford.
It does not have a “home” club and there are therefore no facilities for members to practise, have tuition or purchase equipment.
Nonetheless, the meetings are basically fun occasions despite the serious endeavours to win; and new OE participants are always welcome. You do not have to be a member of the Association or play off a single figure handicap!
There is a nominal £ 5 annual subscription to cover administration expenses and then a break-even charge to attend each meeting to cover the cost of green fees. There is otherwise little in the way of formality, just a 5 minute AGM at the autumn meeting.
