Pupils can have access to the world-famous facilities at the National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, the home of England Golf, and also used by the rising stars in the sport.

Pupils can also access the world-famous Hotchkin course (the 61st ranked course in the world), receive exceptiona­l golf coaching, and will have access to a rst-class academic provision at Lincoln Minster School.

Simon Grocott, Deputy Head at Lincoln Minster School, said: “Having witnessed our students being coached at Woodhall Spa rst hand on many occasions, the opportunit­y for any student to improve their game is truly immense and I believe, unrivalled.”
