Performance Squad

Performance Squad

Our Performance Squad is selected at the beginning of each year and typically numbers 12-14 each year as a mixture of men and ladies. These players typically have handicaps ranging from +3 to scratch, with many holding international honours for their respective countries. The squad receives a full support package including coaching, external support and tournament expenses. Any players applying to the University who would like to be considered for the Performance Squad are encouraged to contact the Director of Golf as early as possible in the application process.
