G.O.A.T.S stands for Golf on a Thursday Society which aims to meet on the last Thursday of each month between February and November on courses around Essex, Suffolk and the Home Counties. The Society was formed in 1981 by a number of local businessmen who asked Terry Jones to run the first meeting for them. After a number of hours he managed to get them out of the stud bar and a round of golf followed.
Terry, who remains as handicap secretary and Society dinner MC, is the longest standing member. The Society now has 39 members and meetings are organised by the Secretary Steve Barker.
The 2019 fixture list is set out below and includes links to the Club websites and a post code if you want to put your journey into your Sat Nav.
The 2020 Captain is Mike Bedwell and his Vice Captain is David Payne.
