The society was set up in 2016/17 and is still getting on its feet, it currently has 18 active members and made up from staff at Bolton College and of the UoB.
As the joining of the UoB and the College has now been completed, the society will change its name to Bolton’s Academia Golf Society (BAGS).
Members of the society have a variety of handicaps ranging from 5 to 28, with some that play weekly to those that only get out on society days.
The society generally gets out once a month on a Friday and plays for a monthly prize, an annual tournament and an annual trophy.
A yearly subscription of £5.00 supports the online facility used to manage players, tournaments and monthly outings.
The first outing of the season is due on 26 October and is planned to be an all-day event at Shrigley Hall. This is generally made up of a 9 hole texas scramble followed by lunch then 18 hole stableford.
