Teams

3 Competitive Teams


The EUGC prides itself on its rich tradition within competitive university golf. The club has three mixed teams with the 1st team competing in the Scottish Premier Division and the 2nd and 3rd teams in the Scottish Fifth Division. The 1st team consists of 10 players and the 2nd and 3rd teams 8 players, with the format of matches being singles matchplay. The club's home fixtures take place over the three courses at Gullane Golf Club and are scheduled during the first academic semester. In addition, the EUGC has a female-only team who play socially against golf clubs in the local area and against selected universities.

Elite golfers can represent the university on the BUCS Golf Tour. The BUCS Golf Tour comprises nine qualifying events held across the UK where the best players in British University golf compete for places in the season finale - the BUCS Golf Tour Finals. Qualification into the BUCS Golf Tour Finals is made through the Macpherson Order of Merit whereby the top 50 men and 15 women are selected following the conclusion of the qualifying events. The format is 54 hole strokeplay, usually over three days, with a cut being made after 36 holes. Entry requirements vary, however a handicap of 4 or less is often required to enter the qualifying events.
