University of Manchester Staff Golfing Society (UMSGS)
The aim of our Golfing Society is to facilitate the enjoyment of mildly competitive golf on a number of different local courses in good company. The Society was formed in 1937, and the first competitive season was 1938 when just two competitions were held. We reformed after the war in 1946, and as membership grew, the number of competitions increased to the present five meetings each season during the summer months.
Any lady or gentleman who works at, or has retired from, The University of Manchester or Manchester Metropolitan University, including research assistants, is eligible to become a member, and PhD students are most welcome to play in any of our meetings on a guest basis. Members are free to invite anyone to play as a guest at our meetings.
