Ellesmere College Golf Academy


Ellesmere College in Shropshire will now promote golf as one of the key sports affiliated with full time education. Students form all around the World who participate in playing golf at any level, will from September 2013 be able to enrol at Ellesmere and receive their education and golf development needs all in one package.

Ian Williams, Director of Sport at Ellesmere and Keith recently finalised arrangements so that the student golfers will receive first class golf instruction and development programmes under the guidance of the Keith Williams Golf Academy.

Coaching will take place at Ellesmere, which has a fine 9 hole golf course and at Hawkstone Park. Students will become members of Hawkstone Park Golf Club. Their programme will include training on all technical aspects, skill development, statistical analysis, physical and mental development, as well as a strong competitive diary for individual and team events.

Keith is delighted to associate the Academy with Ellesmere and recognises the potential overseas attraction but also feels it offers local golfers and their parents further choices for combining education and sport.

Our on site course is an excellent place to develop ones game, with bunkers, water features and unique sculpted holes.  Its proximity to school allows golfers free access at any time.

Ellesmere can boast one of the best on-site school golf courses in the country and together with access to the local golf clubs some of , the finest schools' golfing facilities in Europe.
