WELCOME TO OUR CLUB:
The University of Warwick Golf Club is a diverse, growing society open to anyone interested in playing golf at university. The club is sub-divided by members of our Social Golf programme and the BUCS Squad. Social Golf looks to cater for students who enjoy a casual round of golf, whereas the BUCS Squad has 20 members, split into a 1st and 2nd team, who play competitive matches in the Midlands 1A (1st Division) & 2A (2nd Division) Leagues.
Success has come in abundance over the past several seasons. Following the club’s double promotion in 2015/16 in which both teams were unbeaten in the league all season, the golf team won the university’s 2016 Cecil Angel Award; presented to the best performing sports team of the year. Throughout their campaigns, each team overcame exceptionally tough competition from the likes of Birmingham and Loughborough – universities renowned for their sporting excellence. After a year settling into the league, the first team won the Midlands 1A in the 2017/18 season, narrowly missing out on promotion. Following a tough 2018/19 season, the first team couldn't quite avoid relegation into the Midlands 2A league, where they join the second team. In 2019/20 the Second Team consolidated their porition in Midlands 2A and the first team gained a comfortable promotion back into Midlands 1A.
The dual setup of our society allows us to strike a balance between encouraging participation while also providing means for our elite performers to relish in competition. Club integration is also very important to us and thus we hold weekly socials for all our members, club meals and off campus events which are often arranged with other sports clubs from the university.
BUCS SQUAD 2019/20:
If you would like to play golf competitively in 2020/21, we welcome you to trial out for the squad. Trials will be held in the first week of term (w/c 28th Sept). The squad play and practice at Coventry Golf Club which boasts fantastic facilities. The squad will be limited to 20 players, and as an indication of the standard, the current squad has handicaps ranging from 2 to 10. The First and Second teams will compete in approximately 12 matches each over the year (held on Wednesdays), and the squad practises twice per week (minimum). Those who successfully make it through trials will be invited to join the squad and take up full membership at Coventry.
For more information on trials, BUCS matches and membership at Coventry please feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the more casual golfers who wish to have fun continuing their golf during the next year at Warwick, we are offering Social Golf membership at Coventry Golf Club. The club is ideally placed at approximately 10 minutes from campus, and offers a true test of golf whilst also facilitating for those with limited golfing experience. The Social Golf membership is a great way of meeting others of a similar standard and allows students to book from three tee times each week from October to June.
Please contact email@example.com for more information after purchasing the membership.

It is currently essential that you have your own set of golf clubs at University. We do not currently offer a communal/rental set of golf clubs although this is something we are looking to provide within the year.
Alongside all this golf to enjoy throughout the academic year, we have some fantastic socials to get involved with! The Squad and Social Golf come together for regular club meals in Leamington Spa, and we are regular attendees of 'circling' on Wednesday nights. We also have an annual golf tour which typically takes place at year end to give the perfect send off to those leaving us. Tour is always the highlight of the year, and previous destinations have included Bournemouth, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds, and Magaluf!
