25th anniversary of The GCS

‘Welcome to a special year of celebration, showcasing the very best of The GCS’

In 2020 – 25 years of The GCS!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of The GCS and we intend to have the maximum amount of fun on and off the course as we continue to build on the success of the newsletter and Championship over years.

The Race to Royal St George’s

In 2020/21 we have a very special calendar of qualifying events culminating in the final at the magnificent Royal St George’s. Apparently they are planning a bit of a rehearsal this year in anticipation of our great event!

Our guiding principles when planning our event calendar are to provide our members with a unique golfing experience, combining competitive events at courses which range from iconic Championship Courses to Connoisseur Selections – courses that you may not otherwise have visited but will be delighted when you have! We always aim to provide a first class experience at Clubs who are proud to act as hosts to The GCS – Open.

As we anticipate high demand for all the qualifying events, and to ensure continued efficiency, we are introducing an on-line registration and payment system this year (the entry fee remains the same £55 for each tournament) thanks to our excellent on-going relationship with Golf Genius, who do so much to ensure the efficient administration of all tournaments both on and off the course. To register as a GCS – Open Championship member, please visit:


When we staged the first event – a shotgun start at Hintlesham Hall in Suffolk – we never believed that the Championship would still be in existence and still growing 25 years later. It is a simple formula: wonderful venues; the company of your peers; no trade puff; and pure golfing enjoyment – with the bonus of potentially qualifying for an exceptional two days at any Final, let alone Royal St George’s for the third time!
