MERCHISTON CASTLE SCHOOL GOLF ACADEMY
We recently entered into an agreement with Merchiston Castle to host their Golf Academy – below are the times pupils from Merchiston will be at the Academy
We have asked them not to use the covered bays if the weather is “fine” and to make use of the temporary grass tees.
The boys will also use of the other practice areas and Templar Course.
Our professional Adam Wills is also coaching other pupils not included in the times below.
Mon – 2:30 / 3:30 – up to 8 boys
Tues – 2:30 / 4:00 – up to 12 boys
Wed – 2:30 / 3:30 – up to 12 boys
Thurs- 2:30 / 4:00 – up to 12 boys
Fri – 4:30 / 5:30 – up to 8 boys
Sat – 1:15 / 4:00 – up to 4 boys – use SGGT studios.
The new Golf Academy is open and available for practice, coaching and custom fitting to members and the public
The 12 grass bays we had planned to open to the south of the Academy will not happen until Spring 2021,the 6 grass bays in front of and to the left of the SGGT fitting studios are now available for the professionals use only.
The 12 grass tee area has been completed and is now “settling in” before play will be allowed in April 2021
We have created temporary grass tees, front left of the Academy by the boundary fence (yellow markers) – please access this area by leaving the Academy and turning right then right again being careful at all times as there may be fittings going on at SGGT.
The delay was due to the installation of the water pipeline by Scottish Water – the pipeline has now been completed and construction of the new grass bays has started.
Scott Gourlay and his team of club fitters at SGGT are now fully operational and you can find out more about their services and contact them by clicking on the link above.
Club repairs and a re-gripping service is also available from Scott and his team
