Golf Society (Staff & Postgraduate)

The aim of our Golfing Society is to facilitate the enjoyment of mildly competitive golf on a number of different local courses in good company. The society runs outings throughout the year to a variety of local golf clubs with the highlight being the annual Seniors v Young Gunns Trophy.

Any lady or gentleman who works at, or has retired from, the University of Warwick (including research assistant) is eligible to become a member, and PhD students are most welcome to play in any of our meetings on a guest basis. For further information on the society, please contact Mike Smith by email on mgsmi at sky dot com. or visit the Facebook pagegolf-society-logo.png

New members are expected to:

  • Have their own set of clubs
  • Have suitable golf attire (no jeans)
  • Have golf shoes
  • Have a basic understanding of rules/etiquette
  • Be able to fill in a stableford scorecard
  • Have played before on a full course
  • Have an idea of their handicap (if not a club player)
