Hello and welcome to The University of Leeds Golf Society! Whether you're a scratch golfer or have never picked up a club before, we aim to provide the oppotunity for you to play golf during your time at Leeds.
For advanced golfers, the university golf squad consists of 20 members who play at Leeds Golf Centre. The format for our matches is mixed single matchplay played off scratch, with 6 in a side. After a tough couple of years we find ourselves in BUCS Northern 2B League, where we will face Hull, Leeds Beckett, Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham (X2), York and Sheffield in home and away matches. Alongside this runs the BUCS Trophy cup comeptition, which could see us potentially travel all over England and Wales. We run trials shortly after Freshers which are free to attend for any golfer with a handicap of 13 or less, so there's no excuse not to try out!
Alongside the university team runs the university golf society, for golfers wanting to play recreationally. Joining the society allows members to play at Leeds Golf Centre for a discounted rate (restrictions apply). In addition, we also run regular coaching sessions with one of LGC's resident PGA professionals for golfers of all abilities.
Throughout the year we also run regular social events, highlights from past years included the Ryder Cup Welcome Social, Otley Run's and the end of year Sports Ball. 2016 also saw us run our inagural Richard Mayne Foundation Charity Golf Day at Leeds Golf Centre, where we raised nearly £3000 for charitable causes. An event we will be keen to replicate this year.
