The International Golf Club London is launching an exciting opportunity for golfers to play competitive events at championship courses in the south east region.

This first-of-its-kind club is open to all golfers, regardless of ability, current membership status or location, and offers members and guests the opportunity to enter weekly competitive tournaments at premier golfing venues around London and the south east at preferential rates.

Venues already featured on the varied and impressive schedule include renowned championship courses such as The Grove, Moor Park, The Addington, Essendon Country Club, The Drift, Walton Heath, and both courses at Sunningdale.

"IGC London offers something for everyone, especially the nomadic golfer who doesn’t want to be tied to one course,” said joint director and PGA Professional, James Jankowski.

"It’s a great opportunity to play competitive golf at a variety of the best courses in the UK, and we have been working hard with the venues to deliver real value for our members."

The club can be likened to a traditional golf society, but with many added benefits, including professionally run event days, access to online booking, local pick-up service from nearby transport links, allocation of an IGC London handicap, a large number of regular events and the opportunity to attend free coaching clinics with Jankowski. 

For a small annual fee, members are able to pay-and-play up to twice a week as of May on both weekends and weekdays, and can invite guests to join them in experiencing an array of courses in the south east region.

Peter Phillips, co-founder and joint director IGC London drew inspiration for the venture whilst in Brussels when he was introduced to a similar concept.

"In Belgium, there were a huge number of golfers who wanted to play, but didn’t know where or how to gain access to the clubs in the region," said Phillips.

"I see this as true in the UK as well, there are a vast number of golfers who don’t want membership at one club, but want to be able to experience a diverse range of courses.

"IGC London offers that within a social environment where you’re able to meet and play with like-minded people on a regular basis. It’s something that I think golfers in the UK will benefit from hugely."

Members not only receive preferential rates on event days, but have access to year-round benefits such as concessional green fees at several courses and discounts at various retail outlets, with many more offers added on a regular basis.

Pre-season events will begin on March 26 at The Grove in Hertfordshire, with the full season launching on May 5 at Sandy Lodge, Hertfordshire.
