Golf Application Process

Should you be interested in joining the Saints Golf programme you are encouraged to contact the Director of Golf as early in your application process to the University as possible.

General membership to the programme is open to all students who wish to play competitive golf at the University, the membership fee in 2018/19 was £50. Should a player have a desire to become part of the supported Performance Squad we would initially be looking for the following information:

  • WAGR Ranking (if applicable)
  • Exact Handicap
  • 2 year tournament record and stroke average details
  • Notable achievements
  • References

If we believe a player has the potential to be part of the Performance Squad then they will be invited to join our Pre-Season Training Camp, typically held at the end of August. Here they will be assessed by the coaches and this, in conjunction with the information gathered above, will be used to determine selection. A squad announcement will be made just before the beginning of the new academic year.
