The Golf School Programmes (including Starter Programme, Prep Golf and Futures Squads-(Learn to Golf) are the entry level step into the St Peter’s Golf programme.

Coaching is a mix of direct instruction and a guided discovery approach of self-exploration of movement.

The Participator Programme is designed for occasional or recreational golfers to improve all aspects of technique and course strategy. Players at this level will have regular group coaching sessions supplemented by some ‘booster’ individual coaching sessions. This is a great entry point for most young golfers and provides a strong foundation for our Developer Programme

The Developer Programme is for players who have established the foundation skills and have the potential and the desire to keep improving. Players at this level have regular individual coaching sessions, during school time, which is supplemented with on course coaching sessions and specialised group workshops.

Our Performer Programme a customisable programme to fully support the game and individual development needs of our aspirational students with specific long term ambitions. End goal is for students to be thoroughly prepared to “thrive when they arrive” at their chosen destination.
