Welcome to The Old Stonyhurst Golfing Society. Founded in 1951, the society operates alongside the Stonyhust Association with its own constitution and
committee. All Old Stonyhust, whatever their golfing ability are eligible and welcome to join, we currently have approximately 80 members so are relatively small. We are working hard to bring more into the society.

The Society’s aim is to provide a range of golfing events for Old Stonyhurst golfers to enjoy. These range from our Scratch team playing in prestigious national competitions such as the Halford Hewitt, to high handicap players being able to participate in friendly but competitive competitions and matches amongst ourselves and against other golf societies. Over the coming years we are looking to expand that list of events and re-instate an annual match against the college.

For many younger members in particular who are unable for whatever reason to join a golf club, the Society offers affordable access to golf. We are privileged to have fixtures at prestigious courses such as Royal Cinque Ports, Royal St. George’s, Rye, Royal Lytham St. Annes and Worplesdon.

Our membership includes players from all over the UK with many based in the North West and South East, many who are members of prestigious courses. Our active members can also be found as far away as Gibraltar and Dubai. Participating in Society matches is a good way of not only playing at these clubs, but also for meeting other club members – many OS members have subsequently joined clubs as a result.

Whilst Stonyhurst has never won the Halford Hewitt, the team is improving every year and is now ranked in the top 10 of the Anderson Scale based on results over the last 10 years. The aim of the society is to keep expanding the membership and encourage golfers of all standards to take part in as many events as they can.

To help us stand out when we’re out on the course, we have set up some branded gear with Glenmuir.  If you’re interested in buying some good quality ‘merch’, please find the link below:


In 2023 it was decided that Rupert Evans should be made Honorary President of the Society.  Rupert’s contribution to the Society and indeed the Halfold Hewitt team over the years has been immeasurable.  As well as playing for the Hewitt team for a couple of decades, Rupert was the driving force in transforming how the Hewitt team perform at the competition.  Since he took on the captaincy in 2015, the team has gone from strength to strength, getting his first win as captain in 2016 against Mill Hill.  We have progressed through the first round every year since.  Younger players have come in to bolster the more experienced members of the team.  Giving him this title is a fitting way to recognise his contribution.
