The last year has been a triumph for both of Merchiston’s specialist Golf and Tennis Academies. 

Recent successes have resulted in Merchiston being ranked number one in Scotland and number one in the UK by the ISGA.  The Golf Academy at Merchiston is purposefully small to allow our pupils to benefit from a more tailored training programme and one on one support to improve their game. This allows the players to perform well consistently and have earned the title of number one UK Junior Golf School for the past five years in a row.

Merchiston remains at the forefront of schools golf in the UK. Currently, our Senior team are ranked No1 in the UK schools ranking lists (ISGA). Our Junior team have been ranked No1 for 5 years; 2014-2019. We’ve had National representative honours, boys competing in WAGR events and, through excellent results, showing they can compete on the world stage at various Junior events.
