Golf Club

At Milton Abbey, we run our very own well-established golf club, set in the beautiful grounds of the Milton Abbey estate.

The scenic golf course was designed by Peter Alliss and opened in September 1972.   Peter’s son, Gary, was a pupil at Milton Abbey but interest in the sport here had originated from the Head Groundsman at the time, George Wagstaffe, a keen golfer who created a practice strip for himself by the east side of the Abbey.  Before long, boys started bringing their own clubs into School to join in with him and the wider interest in the sport grew from there.  It was George’s dream and hard work that led to the golf course being built and his influence remains on the course today.

Our 9-hole golf course is open to members and visiting players, and is also available for hire for golf days, tournaments and corporate events. Golf membership for 2018/2019 is charged at £162.50 for the year (excluding January and February 2018 when the course will be closed).  Non-members can now play for £15, and accompanied members can play for £10. This can be paid in the Tea Room.  Please click HERE to purchase golf membership online.

During the School term, the golf course is open from 8.30am-12.30pm Monday to Saturday, and all day Sunday, and all day throughout exeats, half terms and holidays.  On occasion the course may need to be closed due to functions, and these closures will be notified in advance.  We advise all new visitors to the course to phone in advance before visiting, to check availability.

We have temporarily closed the golf course until Saturday 28 March. In light of the rapidly-changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in the UK and worldwide, we are limiting all non-critical visitors to the site, until the school breaks up for Easter. This is not due to any specific risk at Milton Abbey, but we are taking common sense precautions to limit any exposure to the virus within the close-knit school and local communities.
