At the ‘Fore’ Front of Golfing Excellence The UK’s No.1 Junior Golf Academy


Merchiston is steeped in sporting excellence and the impressive achievements of the Golf Academy’s Junior Team have only added to the School’s rich sporting tapestry. The Golf Academy has been ranked No.1 in the UK by the ISGA, for the third year running, with the team collecting its trophy after the final win of the season at the prestigious ISGA Junior Open at Radley College.

Not only has the Golf Academy secured number one Junior Ranking Golf School for the third year in a row, but also two Merchiston pupils have been officially ranked as the top five UK Junior Players. Cameron A (S2) was crowned number one Junior National Individual Ranked Player for 2017 and Lyle M (S1) came in fourth.

Director of the Golf Academy, Alan Murdoch, commented:

“I am an extremely proud coach who has been very fortunate to work with such a super group of young golfers during my time at Merchiston. As you can see, we have maintained the number one position since 2014.”
