Leicester University Golf Team & Society

Golf for Students

We’ve made huge progress in the last year. Not only will we be entering into BUCS competitions for the second time but we will be adding a 2nd team, the University has also supported us by offering Bursaries to the 20 best players.

We play at the Leicestershire Golf Course (a fabulous course in the heart of Leicester) on Sundays (10-4pm).

All of our competitions are mixed so both Men and Women of all abilities are welcome to join.
