King William’s College launches Golf Academy & Scholarships

King William’s College is teaming up with Castletown Golf Links to launch a Golf Academy with two programmes, as well as Golf Scholarships for pupils entering the school in Year 7 or Year 12.

The ‘Youth Development’ programme is designed for those aged between 7 and 16 as an introduction to golf, whilst the ‘Elite Class’ is designed for young golfers who already have a handicap. A Scholarship could represent up to the value of 20% of the tuition fee and those holding a Golf Award will join the Academy’s ‘Elite Class’ programme.

The classic links course dates back to 1892, is widely regarded as one of the best – and most picturesque – in the British Isles, and it provides the perfect setting for young players of all abilities to develop their golfing skills whilst studying at this English boarding school with its own unique location on the coast of the Isle of Man.

Under the expert guidance of the Club’s PGA Pro and Academy Coach Dave Adams, young golfers will be able to access exceptional practice facilities and programmes on a superb course. He comments: “We are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with King William’s College. Golf offers pupils a fantastic opportunity to get active outside in the fresh air, whilst developing balance and coordination physically, and helping to nurture character and sportsmanship, which are all at the absolute core of the game. We have designed programmes to help the young golfers develop, whether they are complete beginners or experienced players, and in addition to the outdoor facilities, we can’t wait to get the students trialling our new indoor practice facility, offering the latest technology to allow for fun, interactive coaching year-round.”

If you would like more information about this, or any of the other boarding schools we recommend in England or Scotland, please do contact us.
