The idea of forming a 1908 Society arose in millennium year, when 16 1908 founded golf clubs, met at Leamington Golf Club. In 2001 it was launched with 8 founder Member Clubs and now there are 26, with new 1908 clubs joining each year.
Its objective is to promote friendship between Clubs and enable members to play at each other's courses on a reciprocal basis. It is agreed that where Clubs are more than 50 miles apart, no green fee would be charged however there are a few exceptions where a reduced fee is paid.
Roger Harris, Past Captain and Past President of LPGC was appointed as Secretary of the Society a position that he still occupies. LPGC very much encourages members to make use of this facility.
Take a look at this list of participating clubs:
1908 Members in 2018
Most Clubs accept up to 8 visitors at a time but larger parties can be arranged providing an appropriate group fee is agreed. You should contact the Club you wish to visit in advance to introduce yourself and make sure that there is availability.
Members of the Society are invited to participate in an annual event which is hosted by a different Club each year playing for an engraved silver salver.
