Reading University Golf Club is fortunate to have fantastic facilities at its disposal, with several great clubs in the local area. The golf society has managed to secure links with Sand Martins Golf Club.
Sand Martins is only a 20-minute drive from the centre of the Whiteknights campus. It is a private members club consisting of two very contrasting sets of nine holes, both of which present golfers of all standards with challenging tee shots, difficult approaches, undulating greens, and beautiful scenery.
For the 2019/20 season Reading will be sporting two mixed golf teams. The First team and Second team will be playing in the BUCS South Eastern Tier 1.
Opposing teams include:
- Royal Holloway 1st.
- Kings College 1st.
- Portsmouth 1st.
- Imperial 1st.
There is also a knockout cup format for both teams which will be announced early in the season after the draw has been made.
Another highlight of the golfing season is our highly competitive Varsity match against Oxford Brookes University. Brookes is a huge university so we are always challenged by a strong opposing team. A lot of competitive spirit, passion, and consumption of alcohol makes this one of the most enjoyable days of the year for the society. This season is our opportunity to host the match having travelled away to Oxford last year.
Whether you are interested in playing competitive golf or just enjoy the social side of the game, the golf society is a great club to join. Some of the benefits of joining the society include:
