Details of School fees can be found on the School Fees page. The following additional fees apply to the Golf Academy.

All Development and Elite Squad players participate in Conditioning and Performance sessions. Using the latest sports science research and techniques, your son will be helped to acquire, produce, build and retain accuracy on a more consistent basis.
Much of this involves working with the organisation Golf Fit, which now has the most qualified golf fitness professionals in the UK and can boast one of the largest junior development programmes in the world.
The Golf Fit philosophy is simple:
Your golf can only be as good as your body allows it to be. By identifying weaknesses in mobility, stability, balance or power we can then design and implement your individual programme to target these areas. This enables your golf swing to become more efficient and effective.
The unique training systems have helped golfers to play in Ryder Cups, hit the ball longer and straighter, and play pain free rounds following injury.
