Welcome to the Hackers Duffers & Bandits Golf Society





Local golf society from Colchester mainly based in the NHS who enjoy a great day out in the local areas in and around Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk


In November 2003 an idea was sprung by a couple of 'old hackers' from the NHS to bring together the Trust golfers old and new, retired and present to form a Society within the Trust for staff their partners and friends.  


Jan 2004 saw the formation of this Society and during the first year membership grew to 30 strong.  We had 7 organised events at various courses around Essex and Suffolk and all were well attended, in 2005 we increased this to 10 events from Feburary to November.


The Committee and Society members met to set out a framework for the coming years.  This has continued to 2010 where the Society has now come into the 21st Century and gone global!  This year Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, next year the World - oops, sorry been watching too much James Bond!


The society has now been going for 13 years and we are going strong, we have a great bunch of guys and a couple of ladies were a very friendly society and we dont take things too seriously.

Each year the new captain picks a charity of his choice for the coming year, so far over the last 13 years we have raised well over £13,000 for various local and national charities.
