The University of Warwick Golf Club offers fantastic golfing opportunities for golfers of all levels, as well as some of the best social events on campus!
WELCOME TO OUR CLUB:
The University of Warwick Golf Club is a diverse, growing society with over 50 members at present. The club is sub-divided by members of our Social Golf programme and the BUCS Squad. Social Golf looks to cater for students of all abilities, and the BUCS Squad holds 20 members whom make up a 1st and 2nd team.
Success has come in abundance over the past several seasons. Following the club’s double promotion 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. Furthermore, Tom our previous club president finished T14th in the Boyd Quaich Memorial Tournament – one of the world’s most prestigious student golf tournaments.
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 2017/18:
If you would like to play golf competitively in 2017/18, we welcome you to trial out for the squad. Trials will be held in the first two weeks of term - look out for more details at Sports Fair on October 3rd. The squad play and practice at Coventry Golf and Country Club which boasts fantastic facilities. The squad will be limited to 20 players, and as an indication of the standard, the current squad's handicaps range from +2 to 9. The First and Second teams will compete in approximately 12-15 matches each over the year (held on Wednesday afternoons), and the squad practices twice per week. Those who successfully make it through trials will be invited to join the squad and take up membership at Coventry for a discounted price. For more information on trials, BUCS matches and membership at Coventry please feel free to contact us with any questions on Facebook or by email.
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 a number of tee times each week from October to June.
FREE FEMALE COACHING FOR 2017/18
Due to it's success last season the University of Warwick Golf Club are again providing 10 free coaching sessions (Usually £40 each) to the first 10 feamles who purchase the social golf membership. These sessions will take place at Coventry golf club and ran by club professional Martin! Dates are to be confirmed but we will look to have 5 sessions in both terms 1 & 2. Watch this space!
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, Ireland, and Magaluf!
If you would like to get involved in golf this year at Warwick, be sure to come along to Sports Fair on October 3rd in the Sports Centre and new to this year, SPORTS FAIR 14TH October - where we will be equipped with a full size golf simulator.
In the meantime, please like our page on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we regularly keep you up to date with our goings on! If there is anything you are not sure of, please see the FAQ section on our website, or alternatively, get in touch on Facebook or by email.
