Squad

Saints Golf is a programme open to all players at the University who have a desire to play competitive golf. We have a General Membership of students who range in standard from scratch golfers to high single figure handicaps and above this we have our Elite Performance Squad.

The Performance Squad comprises of the best players at the University and typically numbers 12-14 each year as a mixture of men and ladies. These players have handicaps ranging from +3 to scratch with many holding international honours for their respective countries. The squad is selected at the beginning of each academic year and any prospective players who feel they are of the required standard should contact the Director of Golf as early as possible.

All members of Saints Golf are required to pay a £50 membership fee.

  • “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
  • “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.”

  • “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
  • “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.”
