The Christian Golf Society was founded in 2007 to create competitive golf opportunities through which Christians with a passion for golf can share the good news of Jesus with their friends. We believe a golf competition is an excellent setting for people to share their faith with non-Christian friends through a common passion for golf. Reaching out to friends through sport is probably one of the most straightforward opportunities we have. The friendships we form with sporting friends are often far stronger than those we make with other people in our day-to-day lives. The truth is that as a Christian in an increasingly faithless world we may be the only bible a person reads as they see how you live your life – or in this instance, how you play your golf.

The Christian Golf Society encourages people to adopt the Christians in Sport approach of pray, play and say. PRAY for your friends who aren't Christians. PLAY your golf in a way that honours God. Be prepared to SAY something about the promise of Jesus Christ.

Further along the Fairway the Christian Golf Society hope to build up a network of events across the country, with the winners of each event invited to a National Final in the September of each year. Interested Churches who would like to help this become a reality are asked to contact us.

These golf competitions will either be organised directly by the Christian Golf Society, organised by a Church on our behalf or organised by one of a number of other Christian organisations with which we have links.
