Golf is now an integral part of our extra-curricular programme. Pupils can choose to join the Friday afternoon activity with the Master i/c Golf and coach Phil Lewis, regardless of previous playing experience. We have an excellent partnership with our local club Taunton and Pickeridge GC, but we also play all over the South West. We also offer the option for our golfers to join an eight-week coaching academy programme set up by Taunton and Pickeridge Head Professional Simon Stevenson. Simon, who is a fully qualified PGA Level 3 coach, focuses on all elements of the game during these sessions. The quality of our extra-curricular golf has led to many of our pupils improving their handicaps dramatically and has also seen a rapid rise in the number of victories our golf team is achieving.
We currently take part in the ISGA, HMC Foursomes, Schools Cup, Somerset Cup, and numerous other friendly fixtures throughout the year. We currently have an excellent crop of players in the golf team, especially Taylor Stote who is now off a handicap of one and represents the South West U16 and U18 teams. We also have Bethany Baker who has just joined on a golf scholarship, and is already playing off nine handicap.
