University of Tartu Rectors Cup 2018

Professor Toomas Asser, who starts as the new rector of the University of Tartu at the beginning of August this year, invites all golf enthusiasts to the eighth Rector’s Cup Golf Tournament that takes place at the Otepää Golf Club on 26 August.

The tournament aims to bring together people interested in the univesity as well as golf to spend a great day filled with competition, exciting encounters and enthusiastic conversations – and to meet the new rector.

Golf players with an active HCP are welcome to take part in the main competition where the best players of five proficiency classes, faculties and three extra competitions are awarded. During the main event a Golf Demo takes place at the rehearsal field, where an experienced trainer will give a thorough overview of golf and its rules and all the participants have an opportunity to try out the game, too. The demo is a good chance for those who would like to participate in the Rector’s Cup but have not played golf before.

At the end of the tournament day, both the competitors and demo participants are welcome to attend a reception hosted by the university leaders, the award ceremony and dinner at the golf centre’s highly rated Mr Jakob Restaurant.

For participation, please register on the Golfbox website or by e-mail on 24 August at 12:00 the latest. For participation in the Golf Demo, please e-mail

Participation fee is €70; for students and juniors (under 13) and players with Otepää Golf Club playing rights €40; for attending the Golf Demo €40.
