AoC Sport Open Golf Championships launched for 2017 entry

AoC Sport is delighted to announce we will once again be running our Open Golf Championships at the superb Fairmont St Andrews resort in Scotland.

Livvy Kelly

This superb venue is a stone’s throw away from the home of golf, the famous St Andrews Old Course, with this competition representing an excellent opportunity for golfers within AoC Sport member colleges to experience the challenge of links golf in one of the most famous golfing areas in the world.

The event is open to both teams and individual golfers of all abilities (as long as they hold a CONGU handicap). The rulebook can be downloaded here.

As well as the competition itself, we do recommend that students and colleges take the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. A visit to St Andrews is not complete without a walk around the picturesque town itself or as competing colleges have done in the past, potentially play the old course itself.

The competition will be taking place on 7 and 8 March 2017 and the closing date for entries is Friday 10 February 2017.


AoC Sport is delighted that we have been able to once again secure this prestigious venue for this year’s event. The competition rounds are due to take place over the superb Torrance and Kittocks links golf courses at the Fairmont estate recognised as one of the top golf resorts – voted 18th in “The World’s Top Golf Resorts” by Conde Nast Traveller reader’s poll & ranked number 22 in “The Worlds Best Golf Hotels” by Golf Digest.
