Did you know that being a member of a Lodge in the Provincial Grand Lodge of Worcestershire, entitled you to join the WORCESTERSHIRE MASONIC GOLFING SOCIETY.
The Worcestershire Masonic Golfing Society (WMGS) held its formation meeting on 22nd November 1962 to promote the following aims:
(a) To promote the competitive spirit of golf amongst the Masons of Worcestershire Lodges.
(b) To hold annual competitions for the Fellows andWeatheroak Bowls

The Society is now in its 59th year of competition and has developed a very appealing and enjoyable experience for the golfing Brethren in Worcestershire to participate in. The Annual Provincial golf day involves competition for the prestigious Fellows Cup and Weatheroak Bowl together with the Veterans Trophies and is followed by the AGM. Additionally 2021 saw the inaugural competition for the ‘Player of the Year’, which has proved to be very exciting.
The Fellows Cup, is an INDIVIDUAL competition, whilst the Weatheroak Bowl, is a PAIRS competition. Your PAIR must be from the same Worcestershire Lodge (any Order) and all are Stableford competitions, full handicap (max 28). The Veterans Trophy is for all competitors over the age of 70 yrs on the day. The Price Taylor Bowl is a 9 hole competition for over 80 yrs.
To compliment the Annual Event, there are annual matches against all our surrounding provinces of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire.
The 60th Annual Event is being held at Redditch Golf Club on Monday 10th July 2023.
