University of St Andrews Golf Club

Founded in 1855, the University Golf Club is one of the oldest sports clubs at the University.

Saints Golf has opportunities for all members of golf so that we can all experience the Home of Golf in some way.

The Golf Club hosts weekly competitions for its members, offers professional coaching and partakes in regular fixtures with other golf clubs from across the UK. These are followed by Wednesday night Men’s and Women’s socials that bind our community of golfers.

The competitive section of our club is split into two programmes: The Performance Squad (1s Team) and the BUCS Squad (2s, 3s, 4s, & 5s Teams). Both programmes get training from Links Academy professionals and compete against other Universities.

The Golf Club also offers a Development Program for complete beginners or those who might not feel confident enough to tee it up in our Wednesday competitions.

The main focus is to enable all members to better their game and build upon the rich golfing tradition of St Andrews.
