Golf

The Old Pauline Golf Society was founded in 1909 to bring together Old Paulines interested in playing prestigious golf courses and enjoying the company of old friends.

In 2017, the OPGS opened its doors to the wider St Paul’s Community, now welcoming parents, former parents, teachers and sons of OPs to join in with their activities. To find out more about the OPGS’s history, click here.
