Golf participation is starting to rise again in the UK and Europe, inspired by the varying ways to access the game and LWC are committed to developing programmes that encourage our pupils to get involved and creating a pathway to golf courses where they will develop into lifelong players. Golf is brilliant for your health, your wellbeing, and your character. It also offers a myriad of job opportunities for the future. LWC golf has a range of options:

New to the game

Pupils can learn the game in a fun and friendly atmosphere with coaching from PGA-qualified professionals at local ranges and facilities, including Blacknest, Alton, Bowenhurst and Winchester Golf Academy, not to mention coaching and guidance from experienced LWC staff on the College grounds.

The emphasis is on learning the basics and enjoying the game and catching the golfing bug!

Moving through the gears

Pupils wanting to drive their game to the next level are able to play regularly at Alton Golf Club (a 10-minute drive from LWC), where they join as junior members (at a discounted rate) and receive tuition and weekly opportunities to play during term, but also in the holidays. 

It is a club with good practice facilities, an excellent professional, and a challenging but fair course on the rolling chalk downland hills, meaning it is playable 12 months of the year.

This is the time when their handicaps should start to tumble. 

Elite performance

Those pupils playing off single-figure handicaps or moving towards this play in competitive leagues within the South of England and beyond.

Members of the first team squad receive a free junior membership at the Harry Colt designed Blackmoor Golf Club, which is consistently voted in the top 100 courses in England.
