Following a great season where UEA Golf battled in the BUCS Midlands League 1A narrowly missing out on top spot and for the first time ever, fielded a second team in the BUCS Midlands League 2B, we're excited for our biggest year ever. We are looking not only to build our membership with both experienced and new golfers alike but expand to more courses both at home and plans for tour in the pipeline!
Members will receive a full 7-day membership at Eaton Golf Club http://www.eatongc.co.uk/, situated just a short 5-minute drive from the university campus. At the course, members will have access to all facilities including 18 holes, practice putting green, small driving range (150yards long approx.), and 10% discount that can be redeemed in the bar as well as the pro shop.
*Members who have an official club handicap certificate are also entitled to enter all club competitions at Eaton for which they are eligible*
Open to all members, the club meets every Monday night outside congregation hall at 6:30/7pm for a driving range session held at Norwich Family Golf Centre driving range http://www.bawburgh.com/family-golf-centre/ (approx. 20min drive), where members of all abilities can practice both their long game under floodlit bays or their short game on the putting/chipping green.
Social rounds at Eaton golf course will also be regularly played at weekends and this is open to all members (standard of golf must be approved by club pro at Eaton first for beginners).
*Clubs can also be shared for those who do not have equipment*
Competitive golf will once again be in BUCS Midlands League 1A (https://bucs.org.uk/bucscore/TeamProfile.aspx?id=1935&sport=Golf&institution=University%20of%20East%20Anglia) which will involve both home and away matches against other universities in the area (teams include: Loughborough, Warwick, Leicester, and Birmingham). The seconds will compete in the same BUCS Midlands League 2B with both hoping to improve on their form from last year.
*Matches will take place on a Wednesday across semester 1 & 2*
*The standard of golf in this team ranges from handicaps 1-7 but anyone with a single figure handicap has a great chance of making the 6-man team for our fixtures*
