Chartered Accountants' Golfing Society

Welcome to the Chartered Accountants' Golfing Society web site

BACKGROUND

We are one of the oldest golfing societies in England and Wales having been founded in 1898.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO JOIN?

Yes, if you are a member (male or female)(or former member) of ICAEW and have an official golf handicap. We have just over 400 members and are always pleased to welcome new members.

YOU SHOULD JOIN NOW BECAUSE

we enjoy ourselves on some of the best golf courses in England and Wales and so can you.

THE COST OF MEMBERSHIP

is £30 per year or £250 for life. The initial one-off entrance fee of £30 includes a CAGS tie.

WHERE DO WE PLAY?

Currently we have twelve meetings and fifteen matches a year. Regular venues include Worplesdon, Moor Park, Woking, New Zealand, Walton Heath, Wildernesse, Porters Park, Tandridge, Royal Mid Surrey, El Jadida Morocco and Belek in Turkey. The Annual General Meeting includes a two/three day golf meeting and is held often over one of England and Wales' great links courses; in recent years we have visited Rye, Royal Cinque Port, Saunton, Formby, Royal Porthcawl, Royal Liverpool and Royal St. George's.

I am delighted to have been elected as Captain of the Society at the Annual General Meeting held at Saunton North Devon. When I joined the Society I was impressed by the warm welcome, the friendliness and the strong sense of fellowship amongst the members of the Society. There is no typical member—some  are old, some are young, male or female, some have or have had careers in the profession, others in commerce or industry, some in the largest companies in the land, others working for themselves. Couple this with the range of golfing prowess of members, from those with low single figure handicaps to others in the mid-twenties and we have a very diverse and interesting membership.

Playing golf in the Society is about enjoyment.  Our meetings and society competitions are held on some of the finest courses in the country, many within commutable distance from London. Our next AGM meeting, which is held over three days, is at Seacroft Golf Club, Skegness in May 2019. This is a very highly rated links course. Members’ partners, whether golfers or not, will be most welcome to join us at this event.

We also play matches against other societies such as the Law Society, Chartered Surveyors, Medics, Bankers, the Stock Exchange and the Bar. Friendships and contacts are made in most enjoyable surroundings.

Members are also given the opportunity to play abroad. We have matches against the Irish Chartered Accountants and the French ‘Experts Comptables’. Next year we hope to play the Italian Accountants and  the first match will probably be in Italy. We also arrange purely social golf holidays abroad in the spring and autumn and recently these have been held in Turkey and Cyprus.

I know that many members have conflicting demands on their time. Some of our members are able to attend many of our events, whilst others can manage just two or three per year. Whatever your personal circumstances you can be assured of a warm welcome at the events in which you participate. 

I am very much looking forward to my year as Captain, playing and meeting with as many members as possible and welcoming new members to the Society.

Paul Beeson

Captain 2018/2019.
