The International Golf Club - London

IGC London

Would you like to play golf at some of London's top courses? Enjoy golf but don't want to join a traditional club? Already a club member but enjoy playing other courses? New to golf or the London area and unsure who to play with?

IGC London Amateur Golf Tour could be the answer you've been looking for.

Open to men & women of all golfing standards, IGC is the UK's newest and, we like to think, friendliest golf society, warmly welcoming all our members and guests to every event.

Co-founders Peter and James host professionally run golf events throughout the year at some of London and the South East's top courses.

Membership gives discounted access to all events throughout the year. Non Members are also very welcome to play, perhaps a chance to experience our events and meet the IGC team, prior to joining.

 

Porters Park. Sun July 29th

Coffee/bacon rolls 1.30. Tee 3pm. Sandwiches after play

IGC member: £75. Non-member: £85

Founded in 1899 by a group of intrepid local residents, much of its beautiful natural terrain remains in place today as it was over a century ago. Many golfers of all standards consider Porters Park to be the no.1 course in Hertfordshire- a hidden gem.

Many of the great names of golf have played matches or exhibitions here including Harry Vardon, James Braid, JH Taylor, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood etc. Famous past members include Samuel Ryder, founder of the Ryder Cup.

We recommend an early arrival as the practice facilities are second to none. The putting green, nets, short game and bunker area are all close to the clubhouse. 2 driving and long shot areas are just a short walk away across the course. We are delighted to be here on a Sunday afternoon when visitors are normally not allowed.

 

Swinley Forest Wed Aug 22nd

Coffee and Rolls. 7.00 1st tee (1st round) 8.00 4 course carvery lunch

1st tee (2nd round) 2.30 Afternoon Tea and Prizes following play

IGC Members: £219 Non-members: £239

A wonderfully charming course set on the Surrey/Berkshire sand belt, Swinley Forest was designed by Harry Colt and opened in 1909. Swinley Forest is frozen in time (it has no website, no captain and no strokeplay competitions) but oozes class both on and off the course. It’s still a difficult place to get on to play, but the club has been most welcoming to IGC and we can’t wait to go there.

Our 36 hole day, interrupted by a 4 course carvery lunch, promises to be a super day. With a normal green fee of £190 per round, we trust you will, again, find our day as real value.

The Addington Sun Sept 16th

Coffee and Rolls. 11.30 1st tee 1.00 1 course meal after play

IGC Members: £99 Non-members: £109

With the normal weekend green fee being £100, our day shows great value.

Designed in 1912 by John Frederick Abercrombie, and located just 13 miles from the centre of London, The Addington makes one wonder how close you are to the metropolis as the course wanders through mature pine and birch trees. The expansive views from the hilltop tees of the wonderful London skyline provide a real contrast to the courses’ rich woodland.

Ranked in Golf World’s Top 100 courses in Great Britain & Ireland, famous quotes include that of P.G.Wodehouse “anyone wishing to write to the author should address all correspondence to ‘P.G.Wodehouse, c/o the 6th bunker, The Addington Golf Club, Croydon, Surrey’ “.

The magnificent par three 13th, according to the great Henry Longhurst is ‘with the exception of the 5th hole at Pine Valley, the greatest one-shot hole in inland golf.’

Praise indeed - come try your luck and gaze, perhaps triumphantly, across to the Nat West tower, Canary Wharf and the Gherkin.

 

Hartsbourne. Monday October 8th.

Full breakfast 18 holes. 2 course lunch.

IGC member £79. Non-member £85

Set in over 180 acres of beautifully manicured & mature parkland, the course was first laid out in 1922 by the noted architect F.G.Hawtree & his business partner, 5 times Open Champion, J.H.Taylor. The club is situated on the county borders of Herts & Middlesex, offering a total of 27 holes - we will be playing the 18 hole combination known as the Willows & the Firs.

6 time Ryder Cup player Peter Oosterhuis still holds the course record with an amazing 62, while Ryder Cup winning captain Dai Rees won the Goray Championship here in 1954 playing alongside the ‘voice of golf’ Peter Alliss.

 

Hankley Common. Tues Oct 23rd

0800. Coffee/bacon rolls. 0900 1st tee. 2 course roast lunch following play.

IGC member: £109. Non-member: £119

Founded in 1897 as a nine-hole course. James Braid advised on the addition of a further 9 holes in 1922. The 7th is looked upon by many as one of the finest par
3’s in the country, and the magnificent 18th a superb but challenging finishing hole.

Bobby Locke described the course as ‘the closest resemblance to a seaside links’, and Charles Lawrie, the famous course architect, reckoned Hankley Common ‘one of the finest inland layouts in Britain.’
