“The most important shot in golf is the next one.” – Ben Hogan

Who plays? Scotland is the birthplace of Golf, so, as you might expect, the SSS programme is rich in golfing history. Student Golf is stronger and more competitive in Scotland than anywhere else in the UK due to the concentration of excellent players and fine courses.

What is there? The sport is welcoming and provides a number of exciting opportunities for keen golfers of both sexes. The BUCS programme includes 4 Order of Merit events, with the latter split into individual and team championships. As well as providing a high level competition it also ensures a route to qualification for the British Universities knock-out competitions against the best golfing Universities from the rest of Britain.

When does all this happen? Tournaments are spaced throughout the course of the academic year.
