The University of Plymouth Golf Club (UPGC) is a friendly club that gives you the chance to play regular golf in between studying for your University degree.
Whether you are a seasoned player or a beginner golfer, we welcome all abilities! There are opportunities to play casually and competitively! This year we have 1 mixed university golf team in the BUCS leagues, competing at the highest level in British University golf!
We play our golf at Boringdon Park Golf Club. The club has 27 holes, its own driving range and uses main greens throughout the year. Transport to roll ups, range sessions and matches will be covered. Membership is £15 to join UPGC, then year round membership of the local golf club is at an additional reduced student rate of £200 (which includes 50 free range balls every day and access to Trethorne GC).
For 2018, UPGC is proud is be associated with OnlineGolf! Exclusively for members, we have secured a 5% discount on items on their website: https://www.onlinegolf.co.uk. Speak to any of the committee for more details.
We hold regular socials, with the majority being 'themed nights'. From beachwear to white t-shirt nights, fun is common factor in all our socials.
Wednesday nights are the usual social event nights, so we can go out and celebrate our teams' triumphs. UPGC socials are lively, fun and always produce a great night out! It’s a great way to get to know people in the society so don't hesitate come along!
For the serious golfers, we have 1 mixed team that compete in the BUCS leagues each year. We are also hoping to reinstate our 2nd team into the league so more members have the opportunity to play competitive golf.
We have regular training sessions during the week and play casual games every weekend which is open to everyone.
We also enter students into the BUCS 'Student Tour'. These are national events where students compete against each other at prestigious venues in a scratch, stroke-play format.
