Golf Society

The Insurance Institute of Guildford has an independent Golf Society that works closely with the institute to bring together those wishing to play golf and socialise.

The Golf Society was originally formed in the 1960’s and has a rich history. It enjoys a popular and strong membership right up to the present day.

The society competes each year in the South of England Cup against teams from Brighton, Portsmouth, Reading and Southampton. The hosts for the South of England Cup rotate each year with Guildford in line to host the event in 2021.

The society also collaborates with the institute on a Charity Golf Day, which is open to all Golf Society members and all members of the Insurance Institute of Guildford.


We have a range of events throughout 2020 as follows:

  • Citymain Cup – Littlehampton GC – 24th March 2020

  • Charity Golf Day – Puttenham GC – 7th May 2020

  • Cornhill Cup – Purley Downs GC – 8th July 2020

  • Maile Cup – Clandon Regis GC – 17th September 2020

  • Eddie Hill Memorial – Copthorne GC – 15th October 2020

  • Autumn Plate – Epsom GC – 18th November 2020

The South of England Cup is being hosted by the Insurance Institute of Reading Golf Society this year, and further details of this will be shared in due course.

How can you get involved?

The society is open to all who work in the insurance industry. You do not have to be a member of a golf club or need a handicap certificate to join. All that’s required is completion of a membership form plus a joining annual subscription of £20.

It’s a great way to meet a diverse group of individuals from the industry, past and present.
