The Sauder MBA golf club is a student-run club that aims to connect students to the local business and alumni community. We do this in an informal environment while encouraging and supporting participation in the sport of golf.
The Sauder MBA golf club will support the growth and development of golf for all skill levels, be a hub for fostering meaningful connections and friendships with students and alumni, and act as recreational yet meaningful tool for relaxation and enjoyment. The club will provide for a platform bringing together current MBA students and the broader MBA alumni community. The MBA golf club seeks to enhance the sense of community and anchor meaningful connections with Sauder MBA students during their time at UBC and beyond.

Co-President - Claire de Weerdt
Claire de Weerdt is a Part-Time MBA of 2019 and dedicated golfer of over five years. She values passion over skills on the golf course, which makes golf an enjoyable pastime for her. When she is not golfing, she is busy studying finance, working on large transportation infrastructure projects, and pursuing aspirations in management consulting. As a third generation UBC graduate, Claire feels like UBC is practically part of her family - even her fiancé is an alumni! This drives her passion for building community here at UBC Sauder and her alignment with the Thunderbirds spirit. Claire is working towards making her vision for the golf club become a reality and bridging the gap between MBA students and industry over a sport that has long been a part of the business lifestyle.
