About Our Club
The club’s main focus is on team play, competing in the Scottish Student Sport (SSS) competitions. We aim to provide a number of club social events and club outings for non-team players.
We are currently developing a strong partnership with a local golf club, Kingsknowe. With this partnership we will be organising a few group events on the course throughout the year for the more experienced players and coaching opportunities for those with less experience. One of golf’s main aims for the year is to create a culture within the sport at Heriot-Watt that people of all abilities feel comfortable to join, as well as offering both competitive and recreational opportunities to our members.
Our club charter
We aim to provide the following service to all our members:
- To provide an opportunity for any team member to practice with the assistance of a coach at each session.
- To provide a range of competitive opportunities to allow members to compete individually or for the University.
- To provide an opportunity for members to gain a worthwhile social experience through the sport.
What does a typical season involve?
A selected group of eight players attend fortnightly coaching sessions to work on all elements of your game. To be selected for team training you will have to qualify at the start of the semester via a Club strokeplay event. To find out more information on team training contact the club committee. There is a one-off fee to attend this coaching of £50 payable at Oriam reception.
The club also competes against other Scottish Universities in league matches, as well as competing in several SSS stroke play events, culminating in the yearly individual and team Championships at Lossiemouth GC which is held at the end of March.
