Golf Club Alumni

One of the University’s focus sports, our Student Golf Club is renowned for nurturing some of the brightest golfing talent and is one of the largest and most highly established golf clubs in the UK. We attract golfers with international level abilities to those who have never picked up a club before and we have programmes to suit every ability. As well as boasting strong representation in individual tour events, the club have been unbeaten in recent years having repeatedly won the premiership.

We host a number of golf events throughout the year that are open to all Exeter alumni and offer a fantastic opportunity to get together with university friends or network with fellow graduates from various graduating years. We are grateful to John Gilbert (Economics, 1972) who leads on the organisation of our golf events through the Exeter University Alumni Golf Society (EUAGS). 

To see which of our golf days will be taking place this year, please visit our events listings.

Northcote Trophy

This annual event sees a University of Exeter alumni team compete against a team of current students for the prestigious Northcote Trophy at East Devon Golf Club.

Players meet at 1pm on Saturday for lunch with the first tee time of 2.30pm. This match is between teams of 12, with a traditional meal on the Saturday night bringing past and present students together. This competitive and fun event encourages attendees to share their experiences of student life at Exeter.

Sports Alumni Golf Day

Following the success of the pilot event in 2021, all sports alumni are invited to attend New Zealand Golf Club for a competitive golf day. This is a pairs event for alumni representing the sports they played at University as well as those alumni who have supported and wish to represent EUAGS. We are hoping that over time we can attract a full house of alumni sports network teams who will compete for the EUAGS Alumni Sports Network Challenge Trophy.
