DOGS was first formed to bring together a group of people who enjoy the social side of golf as much as golf itself. Membership has continued to expand ever since. We have no barriers on ability, sex or age. All that we ask is that you enjoy yourself. We are now proud to boast a membership of 80+ members of which, on any given DOGS day out, there will routinely be 25 or more taking part.

There is a nominal annual membership fee of £10 which pays for administration and some of the prizes at each event. A Direct Debit form for payment of the subscription can be found HERE

If you are interested in joining please feel free to come as our guest first, meet us on course and test us out socially afterwards – we will probably relieve you of your first year’s membership that very evening!

Our annual diary consists of:

o    Four events are held over the year on local courses. Some are 9 holes (Stableford team) in the morning and 18 (Individual Stableford) in the afternoon and some just 18 holes. We generally have a meal afterwards, one of which is an evening BBQ/Fish and Chips. See this year's Fixtures list below.
o    A mid-summer outing (usually Sunday/Monday) to a hotel type venue slightly further away also provides activities for those who find actually playing a round interferes with the enjoyment of the outing.
o    An annual match is held in May between Deddington Original Golf Society and Dorchester Original Golf Society (DOGS V DOGS). This is normally played at Kirtlington GC. There is a dinner and prize giving afterwards - including the match trophy of a picture kindly created and donated by Viv O'Donnell which is hung in the winning village's hotel - Deddington Arms or the White Hart.

The 2018 Annual General Meeting

The AGM was held in The Deddington Arms courtesy of Nigel and Sue Oddy. A round of drinks before the meeting were paid for by the Club which may account for why the meeting was a record attendance - as the very succinct minutes by the Secretary record.
