SSS League – 1st Team Fixtures

SSS League – 1st Team Fixtures

28/10/2018

This semester was to prove to be one of the most difficult for Saints Golf in the league for many years. An early, narrow defeat by Aberdeen was followed up by a win away on the road to Edinburgh at Gullane. We then suffered a  comprehensive defeat at home to league winners, Stirling, before an agonising one match defeat to UHI. Going in to the final game against Strathclyde we knew a win was essential for qualification but after only managing a draw it looked like our hopes of reaching a 3rd consecutive national final were over before the end of semester one. However a rules technicality has meant the fixture is to be replayed, this is likely to take place at the end of January and all focus will now be on winning that match.

Results: 

Aberdeen (5.5-4.5) LOST

Edinburgh (7-3) WIN

Stirling (7.5-2.5) LOST

UHI (5.5-4.5) LOST

Strathclyde (REPLAY)

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.”

  • “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.”
