If you enjoy Golf then have you considered joining the DMGA. With a history of over 80 years, meetings are arranged about once a month throughout the County from April to October and allow you to enjoy a round of golf in friendly competitions. It is a wonderful way to meet fellow brethren with a shared interest and get even more out of your Masonry. Not surprisingly we aim to raise funds for charities through our activities via raffles and supporting Charity golf days too and we annually make charity donations on behalf of the society
You will have the opportunity to play some lovely courses, both in Derbyshire and further afield when we have matches against other Provinces and we always aim to keep costs as low as possible. Another plus is that no official handicap is required and golfers of all levels are warmly welcomed. Several of our fixtures are ‘Open’ events where non masons are welcome to join us and this can be a useful tool to encouraging potential new candidates.
Yearly membership is only £5 pa and by booking our days as society we are able to negotiate attractive rates for our matches which are always followed by a convivial informal festive board.
