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.
Millfield 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
Our Director of Golf, PGA professional Ian Vibert, is a graduate from Loughborough University with a further foundation degree in golf from Birmingham University. Ian co-ordinates the Prep School programme and 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 Prep School and U18 golf competitions, including our own Open Tournament held annually in June at Kingweston. The Squad golfers have the opportunity to play every Wednesday whilst at school at a local golf course, sometimes joining the Millfield Senior School pupils. Other events we regularly attend are the IAPS National Championships, the ISGA Junior Open and Junior Schools Cup, both held at Sunningdale Ladies Golf Club, the ISGA National League, Somerset Schools Championships and the prestigious Stowe Putter. We also play matches against other local schools giving a lot of opportunity to compete at the highest levels locally and internationally. As a result of successes in some of these events pupils have qualified to play in Scotland, Spain and America!
