Welcome to the BGCS Web Site

We hope that you will find the content both interesting and stimulating, a source of inspiration in Summer and a refuge on long Winter nights.


The British Golf Collectors Society was founded in 1987 with the aim of promoting interest in the history and traditions of golf, and collecting items associated with that history. Current membership is around 600 based in all regions of Great Britain and abroad, particularly Continental Europe and the United States.


  • Collecting Interests are many and varied but members share a common interest in the history and traditions of the game
  • Activities centre round a full programme of matches and competitions at some of the most historic clubs in the country
  • The quarterly Society Magazine, Through The Green, contains original contributions by members on subjects of their
    interest and expertise, historic reprints, correspondence and book reviews
  • Membership is by introduction or recommendation
  • Links included on this website are the major administrative bodies in golf, auction houses, publishers and museums
