Forthcoming Golf fixtures for the current term are listed below.

The Master in Charge of Golf, Mr Mark Schofield (ms@shrewsbury.org.uk), organises a group coaching lesson each Tuesday and course play each Wednesday throughout the year. Students can choose golf as a sporting option each term and there is a £40 charge added to the School bill.

Golf at Shrewsbury offers girls and boys the opportunity to learn or improve their game and experience social golf on some of the local courses in the area.  Those students with a recognised handicap may represent the School in golf matches normally played on occasional Wednesdays and Sundays through the year.  We enter a team for the ISGA match play knockout, HMC Foursomes and ISGA Schools Cup competitions.

On Tuesdays, up to ten students from across the age range travel to Shrewsbury Golf Club, where PGA professional, John Richards, leads a group golf lesson.  The golf driving range at Harlescott becomes a good alternative when the weather deteriorates. Golf equipment can normally be provided.

On Wednesdays, students with some playing experience and their own golf equipment may play golf at Shrewsbury or Arscott Golf Club – two courses within five miles of the School. There are six to eight regular players and the School golf team is usually picked from this group.

Thursday golf is popular and forms part of the Fifth and Sixth Form Activity options.  Students experience social golf on a range of different courses across Shropshire.

On occasional Sundays throughout the year, we head to Little Aston Golf Club – about an hour away from School.  A venue for many amateur and professional tournaments, Little Aston is a fantastic golf course and very welcoming to Salopians.

The School is also represented at various Old Salopian Golfing Society (OSGS) meetings, for example at Trentham and Royal Liverpool Golf Clubs, and we always look forward to the OSGS versus The Schools annual golf event at Hawkstone Park Golf Club.
