Hello and welcome to The University of Leeds Golf Society! Whether you're a scratch golfer or have never picked up a club before, we aim to provide the oppotunity for you to play golf during your time at Leeds.
For advanced golfers, the university golf squad consists of 10 members who play at Leeds Golf Centre. The format for our matches is mixed single matchplay played off scratch, with 6 in a side. Having been unbeaten in the league last year, we have been promoted to the BUCS Northern 1A League, where we will face UCLAN (x2), Northumbria, Durham and Sheffield in home and away matches. Alongside this runs the BUCS Trophy cup comeptition, which could see us potentially travel all over England and Wales. We will run trials shortly after Freshers which are free to attend, so there's no excuse not to try out!
Alongside the university team runs the university golf society, for golfers wanting to play recreationally. Joining the society allows members to play at Cookridge Hall Golf Club for a discounted rate of only £5 (restrictions apply). In addition, we also run regular coaching sessions with one of Cookridge's resident PGA professionals for golfers of all abilities.
Throughout the year we also run regular social events, highlights last year included the Ryder Cup Welcome Social, Otley Run's and the end of year Sports Ball. Last year also saw us run our inagural Richard Mayne Foundation Charity Golf Day at Leeds Golf Centre, where we raised nearly £3000 for charitable causes. Our efforts throughout the year saw us nominated for both Most Improved Society and Best Fundraising Event at the Riley Smith Awards.
Some key events:
- Trials @ Cookridge Hall: 2nd October
- Varsity vs. Leeds Beckett: 5th October (including Rugby Finale at Headingley Stadium and Fruity Afterparty)

So if you're considering playing golf at university, then get in touch, you won't regret it!
