Following a great season where UEA Golf battled in the BUCS Midlands League 2A, we're excited to return to competitive golf in BUCS! We are looking not only to build our membership with both experienced and new golfers alike but expand the club and ride the wave of the current golf boom! Whether you have played for years, took it up as a lockdown golfer, or simply are a wizard at crazy golf, we would love to have you in the club this year.
We offer two different levels of membership at Bawburgh Golf Club, which is just a short drive from Campus with both a 9 and 18-hole golf course, a fully stocked golf shop, and exceptional practice facilities. There is an 18-hole membership for those looking to play most regularly and a range membership for those looking for the more social elements of joining a sports club.
Open to all members, the club meets every Monday night outside the congregation hall at 6:30 pm 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 Bawburgh golf course will also be regularly played throughout the week and this is open to all 18-hole members (standard of golf must be approved by a club pro at Bawburgh first for beginners). We will also be looking into group lessons for any student wishing to take up golf more seriously using the PGA-qualified professions at Bawburgh (depending on interest), and this can be extended to all players depending on demand.
Competitive golf will once again be in BUCS Midlands League 2A, BUCS is restarting on the 20th of October and we're looking forward to returning to the competitive aspects of University Golf. We will be holding a lot of inter-club competitions, so please look out on our social media pages if you are interested in playing in those, alongside regular social roll ups.
*Matches will take place on a Wednesday
*The standard of golf in this team ranges from handicaps +1-6 but anyone with a single figure handicap has a chance of making the 6-person team for our fixtures*
The sports fayre will be held on Wednesday 21st September, between 11-4pm. We will be there to answer any questions you may have, and are so excited to meet you!
If you missed us at the sports fayre, please don't hesitate to get in contact with any of the committee (details below) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about getting into golf, regardless of your level of experience we'd love to have you.

Additional Cost of Sport Ranges
The additional cost of sport project, which was created by the Students’ Union, alongside uea+sport, is designed to give prospective members information on the range of costs they may face in joining their chosen sport.
This range should be taken as guidance. For compulsory costs, this price includes uea+sport membership which is £55, and you only need to pay once to join all of our clubs.
When considering additional costs, some clubs may have none and others may have further costs. This is often dependent on the level of competitiveness for the sport you get involved in, and so recreational or socially playing may be cheaper. You may also have equipment which can be used between multiple sports, for example shoes or gum shields.
For any questions, please ask the sport club for specific further information, or email@example.com for further information on the project.
