Squad

Every year on the golf programme we typically look after around 20-25 players, this is a mixture of both male and female students and comprises of the finest golfers attending the University of St Andrews.

This squad is then divided into three tiers comprising of differing levels of support, (A,B and C squads) and players are allocated a squad based on standard as well as various aspects such as attitudes, work ethic and perceived potential. The squads are transient and players may move up and down the tiers as they are subject to continuous performance review.

A typical question for prospective players is “What standard do I have to be in order to qualify for the different squads?” – whilst there is not a set handicap limit for each the makeup in a typical year would be as follows:

Men A – (+3) to Scratch

Men B – Scratch to 2

Men C – 3 to 5

Ladies A – (+1) to 2

Ladies B – 3 to 6

  • “I decided to start supporting the University of St Andrews golf programs about five years ago. I thought I could help make a difference for these programs by financially helping you start a golf donor program. I'm very proud that you have used my funds to create a Saints Golf Website to help you get the word out.”
