In 1927 the Institute of Incorporated Practitioners in Advertising founded a golfing section under the name of the IPA Golf Circle. In September 1959 the name was changed to the IPA Golfing Society and to the IPA Golf Society (IPAGS) in November 1962.
The aim of the Society is to stimulate acquaintance and friendly relations amongst the golfing fraternity within advertising agencies. To this end, the Society organises the following:
Five society meetings each year which comprise a Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn meeting, all of which are also guest meetings - and a Captain's Day for members only in May.
In addition there is a 4-ball knockout competition for members and a one day match against NAGS (Newspaper Advertisers Golf Society).
We play at some of the best courses in England - currently they include Woking, St George's Hill and The Berkshire.
If you are 18 handicap or less and would like to join other Agency people for an occasional day of respite, please visit the web site to find out more - www.ipags.org
