The University of St Andrews Mens' Golf club offers a wide variety of competitions throughout the year.
The University Club has two Club Championship competitions that are played for over our 2nd semester in St Andrews.
The first is our matchpaly competiton which has both a gross and nett draw and is competed for over the entirity of the semester. These matches are both competative but also highly socialable.
The second competition is our year ending strokeplay Championship which is played for over two rounds on the Jubilee and New. The medal preceeds the end of year barbecue and awards evening, an event that is not to be missed!
The 2015/2016 academic year sees the return of the highly competitive order of merit. The order of merit takes place over the two semesters with the 8 lowest medal rounds counting to an individuals' overall score.
Medals, arranged by the competition and handicap secretary take place every Saturday throughout the two semesters.
Our annual Kingsbarns golf day is a not only an opportunity to play one of the best golf course in the World but the day is also highy sociable and another opportuniy to play a competative medal round.
The golf day is the last Wednesday in October each year and is played just before the course closes for the winter. The Club is generously offered a dramtically reduced greenfee which we pass on to all our members therefore this opporuntiy alone is well worth purchasing membership for.
Throughout the year the club offers regular competitions with a wide variation of formats. In this past semester we have organised foursome, fourball and stableford formats. The Ryder Cup golf days were an excellent addition to our first semester. Bringing our members together both sociably and for compeittve experience.
The first semester of the 2015/16 academic year will see the first playing of our winter foursomes knockout. The event will run from mid October through to December with the winners being announced at the Christmas Dinner. The event will be run as a knockout but with pairings re-drawn after each round ensuring entrants get to meet and play with as many members as possible.
Through our affiliation with the Scottish Golf Union the Club is able to not only provide but also maintain handicaps for our members. Once you have a handicap you will not ony be able to play in our weekly medals but also purchase a full links ticket from the Links Trust which enables you to play both the Castle course but also the Old Course.
