Golf Course

We run our very own well-established nine-hole golf course, set in the beautiful grounds of the Milton Abbey estate.

The scenic golf course was designed by the late Peter Alliss, famed BBC golf commentator and ex-pro, 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 nine-hole golf course is popular with local people and visiting players, and is also available for hire for golf days, tournaments and corporate events.  All payments and tee-time bookings are taken online, with a nine-hole round costing £12.50 or 18 holes for £18.

To manage the security of the wider school site in term-time and to offer a better experience to golfers, the course is only open to the public during school holiday times. You can see opening days on the site of our booking partner, Golf Now, the largest online golf platform in the UK:
