Club profiles: Golf

Golf

The Golf Club is looking to involve all levels of golfers, from social golfers to seasoned players, so whatever your standard of golf is don't shy away from getting involved. We want to increase the number of people playing the game of golf ensure that the game is promoted well in the university. Of course we want to become more competitive by improving our squad year on year, while also introducing students, staff and alumni to the game of golf , in order to increase the profile of the club.

History

The NUIG Golf Club is relatively new to the college, and were hoping to build a successful club over the next few years by introducing the students of NUIG to the game. We have already made a Facebook page (link above) , while also forming a strong team which travels the country playing various amateur events, representing the college. So get involved!

Achievements

Last year we made it out of our group, reaching the All-Ireland Finals, only to be narrowly beaten by UCD. We are looking to further our progress in the league tournament this year.

Intervarsities

We have started the 2017/18 season remarkably well with 5 of our players making the cut and finishing in the top 30 at Enniscrone Golf Club in October.

This was the second most of any college in Ireland.

 We look to continue to improve our results over the next 6 months with several up and coming intervarsities and youth events in the early part of 2018. We have a talented panel and look to produce some strong results over the coming 9 months.
