About Cambridge University Golf Club
Golf at Cambridge is a Full Blue sport. There are two Men’s teams: the Blues and the Stymies, and one Ladies’ team.
The annual Varsity Match against Oxford is the oldest amateur event in golf, predating the first Amateur Championship. This year’s match, the 134th University Match, will take place in March 2023 at Royal Dornoch Golf Club.
For information on joining us, please feel free to email the relevant Committee member. We have a mandate to play and promote the game of golf among the members of the University community. Accordingly, it is open to all undergraduate & postgraduate students, including those attending the University from abroad.
The Men’s first team are also known as the ‘Blues’. Handicaps are usually 5 or below.

The Stymies are the Mens second team and handicaps usually range from 6 to around 12.
The Stymies play an extensive fixture list in the Michaelmas and Lent terms, culminating in a match against the Oxford Divots at the end of March.
The Ladies team is generally comprised of single figure to mid-handicap players.
