The Angmering Golf Academy was established 6 years ago, and is a collaborative effort between the local Golf Clubs and the school to support golfers achieve their potential.
Practice is on Wednesday afternoons at Ham Manor and at least one driving range session a week. Players compete in the British Schools and Colleges League which gives them tournament play through the winter finishing in National Finals at a top venue in April/May.
To be considered for the golf academy players need a handicap of 18 or less, the team is selected on the 6 players with the lowest handicaps.
