Each year before Revival starts we run a match against the British Golf Collectors Society (BGCS). This annual match is played on The Downs course with hickory golf clubs and traditional golf attire.

The BGCS was founded in 1987 with the aim of promoting interest in the history and traditions of golf and collecting items associated with its history. A number of Golf At Goodwood Members are also members of the BGCS which is what helps make this a well-loved, yet competitive, event.

The recorded history of the event shows the BGCS have often bested the Goodwood Members but this year Golf At Goodwood managed to win for the first time since 2014.
