Access to fantastic golfing facilities
Millfield Prep offers an outstanding provision for golf. We have our own 9 hole course, a putting green on campus, an indoor coaching area and have use of the Millfield Senior School driving range at Butleigh and the course at Kingweston.
Prep School Programme
In addition to individual coaching we run various beginner, development and elite squad sessions. We have access to various local courses and pupils of an appropriate standard have the opportunity to follow a full time program. The expert tuition includes video swing analysis, long and short game and helping with course management.
Professional golf coaches
We have recently appointed our own Director of Golf and coaching professional. A graduate from Loughborough University with a further foundation degree in golf from Birmingham University PGA Professional Ian Vibert co-ordinates the Prep School programme. We also have considerable support from the Senior School PGA golf professionals (Karen Nicholls and Stuart Wells).
Opportunities to compete
We compete successfully in various Preparatory School golf competitions, including our own Open Tournament held annually in June at Kingweston. Some Prep School pupils currently join the Senior School squads midweek to play on local courses. Other events we regularly attend are the IAPS National Championships held at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club, the ISGA Junior Open and Junior Schools Cup both held at The Shire Golf Club and the prestigious Stowe Putter.
