IGC Society to Host Prestigious Summer Events
One of the best ways of playing golf is through a golf society. While traditional club membership is a great way to experience the game, societies are an especially good option for meeting other golfers, playing more courses and just generally expanding your golfing horizons. One of the most popular and top-quality societies is the London-based International Golf Club – London, or IGC, offering golfers a premium society experience that can be rivalled by few others. This is particularly true of the club’s final summer run, which is open for booking now. A truly luxury golfing experience at some of the best and most prestigious courses in the UK, including Woburn, Sunningdale and Moor Park, golfers in search of the very top society events should make sure to make a space for these in their golfing calendars.
Societies and their Benefits
In recent years, more and more golfers have been benefitting from the advantages of joining a golf society. While the model of the traditional golf club – whereby golfers pay a fixed, yearly fee to give them access to a particular course – is still going strong, more and more players are choosing to supplement membership of a club with membership of a society. For a small fee, players can join groups of like-minded golfers who organise events at a variety of different clubs. These typically include lunch and a round on a new course, as well as all the advantages of societies' usually thriving social scenes.
The International Golf Club - London
The International Golf Club – London is one of the best societies in the country, offering a premium style golfing experience and packages for players who wish either to enjoy the quality and social trappings of a traditional club experience without joining a club, or, more commonly, to play further golf on top of their club membership in a like-minded society. Golfers from all backgrounds enjoy the society because it’s a great way of playing more golf and, especially, on a variety of top-quality courses. The advantages of the IGC are manifold. The society offers a brilliant way of meeting fellow golfers, making new friends, and it’s also well-suited to business people, being a great way to entertain and impress clients or guests. Members receive up to 15% off each event. There’s even a pick-up service for those without a car and don’t worry about forgetting your clubs – clubs hire is available at every event.
IGC Summer Event – Woburn GC – Wednesday 21st August (36 Holes)

IGC Summer Event – Moor Park – Tuesday 1st October
Last but not least, the IGC cap off their summer season at the luxurious Moor Park. On October 1st, golfers will play the more senior of the 2 courses at the club, the High Course.
