The Golf Academy at Merchiston will this Sunday offer aspiring young golfers the chance to spend a day at the Academy with FPGA professional and director of golf, Alan Murdoch.

This is a fantastic opportunity to experience a free day of golf coaching with one of Scotland's most respected coaches, learn some of his secrets and experience first-hand why the Academy has been so successful.

In 2015, the Golf Academy was the highest ranked school in Scotland, and so was selected to represent Scotland in the Home Internationals, in which it achieved second place. The Golf Academy also won the title of joint National ISGA Junior League Champions.



“It’s a thing that I organised when I joined the school,” said Murdoch. “I wanted to do a workshop for prospective boys who are looking at a school and it’s an opportunity for them to come along, meet me, see what we do at Kings Acre, see the way I coach and interact – and it’s a great opportunity for them to come along and see what happens at Merchiston.

“It’s targeted, really, at anyone but with an edge of the possibility of getting boys to come to the school. At the end of the day, if one boy who comes to the workshop decides to come to Merchiston, then it’s a benefit to the Golf Academy.”

If you'd like to book a place for your child in the Golf Academy workshop on Sunday, you must reserve a space by today (Friday, April 29).
