Squad

In 2017/18 Saints Golf is comprised of two tiers of players – the Performance Squad and the BUCS Squad. These squads in total provide varying levels of support for 30 players with admission to the squads based on different aspects such as performance, historical results, attitude, work ethic and potential.

The structure provides a pathway for those entering the programme, BUCS Squad players may be awarded extra support and promoted to the Performance Squad with good results and application.

Potential applicants should make first contact to the Director of Golf – the application process and squad structure is under review and is likely to change for the 2018-19 season.

  • “As a parent of a student presently attending St Andrews and playing for Saints Golf, I cannot imagine another University anywhere being able to offer a better golfing and educational experience than the one my son is receiving.”
    David McCarthy – Parent & 600 Club Member
  • “To play for the University of St Andrews Golf Team made that experience even more important to me – the combination of the traditions, the people I’ve met through the matches and the wider network, the extraordinary places we played, and the consistently brilliant competition, are highlights of my life.”
    Storm Boswick – MA Honours, 1991
  • “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.”
    Van deWar – 600 Club Founding Member
  • “The golf programme they have at St Andrews is a great option for players who want top level academics but do not want to compromise on the quality of the golf programme - it's a special opportunity to be a student athlete in the Home of Golf.”
