The OEGS was founded in 1932 (and I now quote from the Constitution that was approved in 2014) “exists in order to encourage Old Eastbournians (OEs) of all ages to play and enjoy the game of golf in the company of their fellow alumni and members of the Eastbournian Society”.
We are very keen for more OEs to join the OEGS and to take part in our activities but, as our Constitution makes clear, membership is also now open to former and current parents of College pupils and members of the staff of the College, ie. members of the wider Eastbournian Society.
Some of our fixtures are only open to actual OEs, namely the Halford Hewitt, Grafton Morrish, Cyril Gray (for the over 50s), Sussex Schools and the Public Schools Putting Competition. However we also organise friendly matches against other schools such as Tonbridge, King’s Canterbury, Lancing and Hurstpierpoint and a Spring Meeting at Brancaster, a Summer Meeting at Royal Ashdown Forest and an Autumn Meeting at Cooden Beach which would be open to any member of the OEGS. And should we get a lot of new members, we shall have to look to putting on additional events in the future.
We visit some of the very best courses in the South and East of England but we do most definitely cater for golfers of all standards in one fixture or another.
Our 2017 Fixture List appears elsewhere on this website.
Membership of the OEGS only costs £20 per annum (or £5 if you happen to be under 25 years old). You then only pay for the fixtures that you attend. And again, for anyone under 25, we almost always generously subsidise their golf from OEGS funds.
The subsidies to our younger members is one use to which the membership fees are put so, even if you only play with us very infrequently, your £20 per annum is going to a good cause.
