Yesterday was match day for the team against St. Andrews University. Unfortunately, the result 5.5-2.5 St Andrews, was not what they hoped for, but all good experience and some excellent food to finish the day. A couple of shots of Fergus hitting into the par 3 on the 9th, with 50mph wind gusts off the sea and heavy rain 😱 At least the new UHI beanies kept them all warm.


A good turn out for the away day at Castle Stuart Golf Links, Scotland.


The UHI Golf team recently played Northumbria University and secured a 5-3 win. A great photo of the team and their loyal supporters on the 18th Green at Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Struie course. Well done team. πŸ‘πŸ‘
