Within the Golf team there are players of all different playing abilities who regularly come together to practice and play between league fixtures,. Our focus within the team along with performance is to maintain a strong social side to the sport creating a great team spirit. Overall, being a part of NTU Golf will allow you to enjoy and utilise your spare time whilst socialising and improving your Golf game.
If you are a BUCS player or a recreational player, our aim is to ensure that everyone has the same great experience as part of NTU Golf. Girls are still underrepresented in sports such as golf and one of the aims of our society is to promote and encourage women’s golf at University, both at competitive and recreational level. We hope this starts a trend which, we believe, will send the sport in a better direction.
NTU Golf have a membership with Ruddington Grange Golf Club, the membership we offer allows you to play Ruddington throughout the academic year at any time, the only exception being that you are not able to play on a Saturday.
However, members of the society will arrange a slot of tee times on a Sunday, where they are able to go down and test themselves against the course and each other.
These Sundays also offer an opportunity for players who may not make the team every week to improve their golf, more experienced team members are always on hand to offer guidance with the aim of improving every member’s golf and team opportunities. One previous member started the year with a handicap of 28 but by the end of the year he was playing off 15.
Members also regularly attend the local range on week nights, typically Tuesdays, to get some extra practice in.

British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS)
NTU Golf has two mixed teams competing in BUCS. These teams consist of 6 members which play in a singles scratch match format.
The teams change frequently so if you are not in the team on your first attempt, please don’t give up, keep yourself involved, keep practicing and continue to attend the Sunday sessions and make sure you are ready to take your chance when it comes.
Practice / meeting schedule
Transport for away matches is provided by the society, pick up times and locations are confirmed with team selections for that week.
Throughout the year many regular team members choose to play on Sunday at Ruddington in addition to playing matches on a Wednesday, whether they are playing as part of the BUCS squad for that week or recreationally. This is a great way to stay involved and improve your golf
