The Transport Golfing Society, or the TGS as the members usually call it, was formed in 1935 by a group of friends in the transport industry who enjoyed each other's company and who had a common interest in golf. That is still very much the case today. Currently membership stands at about 120 gentlemen who are privileged to play some of the finest courses in and around the home counties. The fixture list is shown elsewhere on this website but all members have the opportunity to play Worplesdon, The Berkshire, St George’s Hill, Ashridge and Hankley Common. In addition, each year we play on our President’s own course and a couple of representative matches are held against the Motor Traders' Golfing Society and the Army’s truckies, The Royal Logistic Corps.
Of course, all members pay a small annual subscription plus a match fee which is subsidised very generously by the Society and funded largely by the annual dinner held in London in December. This is considered one of the best sporting dinners in London with 500 or so members and guests enjoying a wonderful evening of music, good comradeship and great after-dinner speakers. You can read more about the dinner in the relevant section including how to apply for tickets.

"Indeed, the highest pleasure of golf may be that on the fairways and far from all the pressures
of commerce and rationality, we can feel immortal for a few hours."
