With the academic year now truly underway, student golfers take to St. Anne’s this week for the Irish Intervarsity Championship. 

Seventy-four players representing twelve educational institutions will compete in the 54 hole event. Niamh Ward, who secured double success for Ulster University alongside James McVicker at the event in Rosapenna last year, returns again to defend her title.

Since 2012, the GUI and ILGU have run competitions for third-level student golfers in Ireland in an effort to encourage the benefits of third-level education for promising golfers and also in an effort to ensure that golfers who embark on such an education stay in the game.
