Next year (2022) marks the Centenary of the founding of our Club.
This is a significant milestone for the Club and all our members. As a result we are working to develop a series of events, both golf and social, to enable every member to join in the celebrating not only the 100 years of the Club to date, but also the start of the next chapter of our journey.
This section of the website will provide all the information you require to plan your participation, book your activities and to see what happened at previous events. As we get nearer to the launch of the plans, we will update the section below, but for the time being, please see an outline of some of the key dates to help you to make a head-start on your planning.

As part of our Centenary golfing programme, Liphook will be hosting a Pro-Am on Thursday 26 May 2022. We have partnered with PGA (South) who will be running the event and providing the Professionals, drawn from across the Southern region of Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. We are planning for 40 teams on the day, each comprising a professional plus 3 amateurs.
As this is our first Pro Am and it will be taking place in our Centenary year, members are now being given exclusive priority to sign up to play in the event. If you wish to play, please enter your name on IG via Upcoming Competitions (competitions/upcoming/show all competitions). Entry is open to all members and whilst initially you will enter as an individual, you will have the opportunity later to combine into a team.
It is very much hoped that we can fill the event entirely with Liphook entrants and sign-up is open to members only until 31 January 2022. Depending on the numbers signing up, it is possible that at a later stage member may be able to invite a guest to play. If we are oversubscribed by Liphook members, we will regrettably have to ballot participants.
We are reliably informed by PGA (South) that this will be regarded as a very prestigious regional Pro Am and as such, there will be a high demand from the wider golfing community to play if there is insufficient take up from members. Therefore, if you wish to play, don’t delay - sign up sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment!
The cost of the day will be £125 to include individual entry, the Pros' prize fund, refreshments on arrival, lunch and/or afternoon tea, prizes for 1st to 8th placed teams, nearest the pin and longest drive prizes for the amateurs. If the sign-up is opened up to guests or visitors at a later stage, the entry price will be higher.
When the exclusive sign-up period ends on the 31 January 2022, participation will be confirmed, at which point participants will be required to pay the full fee for the day to secure their place.
Finally, we have now secured one principle sponsor for the event but we are keen to find another so if any members are able to offer support through their business, please get in touch with either John Douglass or Nick Lees for further details.
