Currently we have twelve meetings and fifteen matches a year.

Message from the Captain

I am honoured to have been elected as Captain of the Chartered Accountants Golfing Society for 2020/21. I have been a member for more than 10 years, and have enjoyed my golf with CAGS enormously. We have an excellent schedule of meetings and matches that are played on some of the finest courses in the country.
Our members are Chartered Accountants with a wide variety of careers across both the profession and industry/commerce. We have several lady members, and many members who are still working. Members handicaps range from low single figures to 28, across all ages. The members love golf, and care deeply about the spirit and camaraderie that the Society provides. We welcome new players and hope that they are captured by what the Society has to offer.
We have frequent meetings, including the Spring and Autumn Meetings which are held at Woking and New Zealand Golf Club respectively. We also have a number of matches, including against the Livery Company, Stock Exchange, Law Society, Chartered Surveyors, Hazards and Medical Golfing Societies and annual matches against the Irish Chartered Accountants and French “Expert Comptables”. The latter rotate from a home to an away match, and have taken us to some great courses in Ireland and France. These matches, while competitive, are also great fun to play in with plenty of time to enjoy the company and excellent food and drink.
We also have social golf holidays in our calendar, which have in the past included regular trips to Turkey and Morocco. At these, and certain other events, there is an opportunity for members partners, whether golfers or not, to join us.
Another highlight of our year is the AGM meeting, comprising three competitive rounds, a singles, foursomes and drawn greensomes, over three days. Our AGM in May 2021 is to be held at Hunstanton Golf Club. Located on the beautiful North West Norfolk Coast, it is a classic links course which hosts a number of championships, with the Womens Amateur Championship scheduled in June 2021.
Unfortunately Coronavirus has led to the cancellation of many of our fixtures this year. Hopefully we will emerge from the pandemic soon, so that our season can restart. I will be playing in as many events as possible after the restart, and look forward to meeting a number of new members and welcoming them to our Society.
