WELCOME to the WAYFARERS’ GOLF SOCIETY

Thank you for visiting our site, whether you are a member or just browsing. We hope you find the contents of our site both interesting and informative, and go away a little wiser for the experience. Who knows, browsers may well follow our lead and spread the Wayfarers idea across the globe ?

For existing members, it should provide everything you will need to know about your society and its activities. In fact, this website is now the usual means of communication between playing members, their clubs and the Organising Committee. We are almost completely paperless now.

In addition to enjoying ourselves playing team golf between member clubs, every year we arrange a few fund-raising events to raise money for various charities. To date, we have raised well over £100,000. We are looking for sponsors to help us with the modest running costs of our activities so that more funds are available for charity. If you feel able to assist us in this, please contact the Society’s Chairman (Glyn Stone on 01443 740249 or at glynstone1945@gmail.com)

INTRODUCTION by the CHAIRMAN

The Wayfarers Golf Society was formed 40 years ago, the main purpose being to bring together golfers from golf clubs in South East Wales in an inter-club team competition. Over the years, the membership has grown from 14 to 44 and also includes clubs from Powys and Gloucestershire. Well over 1,000 golfers take part each year in a League Competition, a Knockout Competition, at least one Charity Day and numerous Tours and Away Days. Membership is now restricted to golf clubs which are affiliated to the Welsh Golf Union and have a handicap of 10 or over.

Fund-raising for charity is an important part our activities and, each year, this is organized by the winners of the Knockout Cup in the previous year.


Yours in Sport

Glyn Stone (Chairman)
