The domestic BUCS Student Tour is very popular and is played at some of the UK’s most prestigious courses. To qualify for the tour finals individuals must compete in at least 2 of 8 qualifiers with the top 40 players in the order of merit qualifying for the Tour Finals.

The Golf Sports Advisory group provides technical and sport specific advice to the BUCS Office and works with staff to develop a strategy for the programme. Click here to view the membership of the groupClick here to view the BUCS Golf Strategy

Golf is also part of the BUCS international programme and is competed at the World University Championship, European University Competitions and will be a guest sport at the 2015 World University Summer Games.

The international University Sports Federation (FISU) organise the World University Games (the Universiade) every two years.  The Universiade is widely recognised as the second largest multisport Games in the world after the Olympics and progressively has risen to World Class in scale and standard, with over 10,000 participants from 150+ countries.

The World University Championships are for national representative teams (GB & NI) and are held every two years in various countries across the world.

EUSA (European Universities Sports Association) events are ’tournament winners’ tournaments for Universities and allow the top Universities in the BUCS Competitions to compete against the best Universities in Europe. EUSA events take place each year, and alternate annually between the EUSA Games (a single multi-sport event) and the EUSA Championships (a series of single-sport events).

The aim is to provide students and members with development support and access to coaching, workforce and volunteering opportunities, participation programmes, NGB interventions and offers, disability sport initiatives plus funding and bursary opportunities.
