The OP Golf Society dates from 1959 and was founded by R&A member John Whitmore (44-47). It holds an annual meeting at various clubs throughout southern England, plays an annual match against College golfers (usually at The Berkshire GC) and Huntercombe GC, and runs a knock-out competition for the Centenary Cup.
The Secretary and organiser is Charlie Parry (81-85).
