The UHI Golf Team, made up students studying on the BA (Hons) Golf Management degree at North Highland College in Dornoch are currently top of the Scottish University Sports/BUCS winter league. The team, who play their home matches on the Struie Course at Royal Dornoch Golf Club, have beaten teams from Edinburgh University 4.5-3.5, Heriot-Watt University 5.5-2.5 and recently gained a good draw against Dundee away from home. The league of seven teams from across Scotland is made up of 8-man teams, playing each team once.
Alan Fleming, Team Coach, PGA Professional and golf management lecturer for North Highland College reports that “the team have had a really good start to this year’s league. The UHI Golf Team is performing well and when you consider the size of the pool of students in comparison to some of the other teams, the strength of our team is quite impressive. So far there have been 12 different players representing the team this year, providing good competition for places. The students all play and practice regularly as part of their programme of study as well as for recreation and competition. This helps them develop a good level of consistency and competitive spirit. At this point I am confident that the team will go on to qualify for the British Uni’s, a great achievement for the Team, for the golf management programme, for North Highland College and for the UHI”. The Golf Team is grateful for the continued support of Royal Dornoch Golf Club and Neil Hampton, their new Club Manager as well as Willie MacKay, clubgolf Regional Manager for the Highlands.
