Who we are

Fitzwilliam Golf Society is the golf society for alumni/ae and members of Fitzwilliam College Cambridge.

We organise golf days and short tours - about 11 events annually . We try to visit good quality courses - mainly in the South East and around the UK on our tours. We have some matches against other Oxbridge colleges The Fitz Open in early September is always played near Cambridge and finishes with a dinner in college, biennially coinciding with the Fitz Sports Alumni Dinner.

Ability levels vary from scratch golfers (only one!) to high handicaps. New members will be made very welcome. We have no annual subscription.

 

Fitz GS exists for Fitz alumni/ae to get together to play golf on good courses. We're proud to say we're the largest and most active alumni golf society of any Oxbridge college.

If you're interested in joining in, you'll be given a warm welcome. Please contact the Secretary, Colin Dunkerley on fitzgolfsoc@gmail.com

 

2020 Season Review

The Fitz GS season was shortened by lockdown and retsrictions but we managed five rounds - all with social distancing. Our season started on a very hot day in August with a match against Christ's. The Fitz Open was held at John O'Gaunt in September with Martin Holmes triumphing as our Fitz Champion Golfer.

 

Finally our Autumn Mini Tour to Oxfordshire started with a round at Frilford Heath. The main event was at the Oxfordshire on a rather wet day when Alan Wood won to become 2020 Tour Champion and the first recipient of the new the Mike Hamment Tour Trophy.  

Leeds Tour - All's well that ends well!

The long awaited tour to Yorkshire started very wet in Alwoodley but finished in the sunshine at Moortown. Andrew Garden won the Tour Trophy with 36 points. See full reports.

 

Fitz Local Golf 2021 

Eight Fitz Local Golf matches took place around the country in the week of 20 April in our first event. Small local groups met together hosted by one of the group members from Essex to Devon.

Reports and Photos from each group on Fitz Local Golf 1 page.

New Event on 2 June 2021

 

A Fitz Society Day will take place at Porters Park (Radlett, Herts) on 2 June. All Fitz golfers are welcome to play at this excellent course. Please sign up now.

 

We are inviting team organisers from other Oxbridge colleges as guests. This event replaces the postponed Alumni Invitation Day.  

2021 Season schedule - Alterations

Our early season programme has been affected by golf clubs not accepting visitors. The Members and Guests Day on 20 April and the Alumni Invitation Day on 2 June have both been postponed until next year - but replaced by other events. Our May Tour to Leeds goes ahead - a day later than originally planned! 

See full list on 2021 Events Schedule page.  

Alan Wood wins the new Tour Trophy - Autumn 2020

In very wet conditions at the Oxfordshire, Alan Wood scored 33 points to become the first recipient of the new Mike Hamment Tour Champion Trophy. See full report of two days of the Autumn Tour

Martin Holmes is 2020 Fitz Champion  Golfer

The winner of the 2020 Fitz Open at John O'Gaunt GC on 11 September was Martin Holmes with 34 points, with Mike Hamment second on 32 points. See full match report and results

2020 Season starts in earnest with Match v Christs

 

Our first full match of the delayed season was a match v Christs at the magnificent setting of Guildford GC. The weather was glorious but the result less so - with a 4-2 win for Christs. See Match Report

Fitz Golf is back! 

Fitz golf restarted post lockdown with an informal day at Harpenden Common GC,  on 16 July, hosted by Matt Hignell. His team triumphed narrowly over Mike Hamment's team. It was good to be back. See Match Report.

2021 Season

Eleven events (thirteeen rounds of golf) are programmed for 2021 - Covid restrictions permitting. All the events postponed from early 2020 have been rebooked for equivalent dates.

Our Captain, Mike Hamment has organised  two mini tours which take us to some of the the country's finest courses including Hunstanton and Royal West Norfolk (Brancaster) in March then Moortown and Alwoodley in Leeds in May. We also have Society outings to Tandridge and Royal Ashdown Forest.

Our Oxbridge matches continue with our Alumni Invitation Day (June at Berkhamsted and fixtures against St Edmund Hall (July at Sandy Lodge) and against Christs August at Henley).

 

The popular Members and Guests Day is in April at Bramley (near Guildford)

The Fitz Open in September is our biggest event of the year and we visit Bourn (near Cambridge). The event will co-ordinate with the Sports Alumni Dinner in college the same evening (tbc).

Bookings (and advance payment) for all events will be invited in early 2021. Obviously, we will have regard to the current and projected restrictions but we hope for a clear season.

 

We thank all our hardworking Match Organisers and the Treasurer!
