The University of Bath Golf Club aims to get more people involved in golf at all levels whether that be through coaching, competitions or matches against other Universities. The University Golf Club uses Bath Golf Club for coaching which is situated right next to the campus. Both University teams use Kingsdown Golf Club for matches, which is only a 25 min bus from Bath Bus Station (City Centre) (X72) or a 10 minute car journey. All students are able to join both clubs at reduced university rates, £300 for Bath GC and £80 for Kingsdown GC for the University year.
We have a squad (made up of a first and secound team) which compete in both league and cup team events, as well as the opportunity to play individual competitions an earn the University valuable BUCS points. The first team currently play in the Southern Premier League, which is the top BUCS league and came 3rd in the south last year. The second team is a brand new team in BUCS this year, and will give mid single figure golfers the opportunity to play for Bath.
For players selected to play in either of the teams will be required to pay the £50 BUCS fee on top of your memebership fee. This entitles you to, weekly S+C, weekly psychology (Fri 2-4), monthly swing coaching and a putting biomechanic. (The first of these monthly sessions will be Friday 6th Oct 2-4 with a few holes after)
For non squad players, there is a £30 lessons fee on top of your society fee (Great deal when a single lesson with a pro would cost £50!!). The coaching sessions will be held down at Bath Golf Club with a healthy mix of sessions on the driving range, the practice greens and some on-course play for top improvers. Often the players themselves decide which part of their game they want to work on. There will be a choice of three 1 hour lesson slots every Wednesday afternoon between 1:30 and 4:30 and which one you choose is entirely up to you. But as a rule there will be a lesson slot for absolute beginners, one for intermediates and another for more experienced golfers. (The first of these lessons will start on Wednesday 11th Oct and will continue every week unless notified)
Both products can be purchased on this page from the products tab on the left.
In addition to the coaching available, those that join Kingsdown will have the opportunity to take part in a year long Stableford competition. The points from the Stableford competition will accumulate over the course of the year and contribute to an end of year finale for the University of Bath Golf Championships.
Few universities can boast a choice of high quality golf course and extremely low lesson prices. Take the opportunity and join up!
