Golf at Malvern

Pupils can play and practice all year-round if they so wish, or can plan their golf around other sports and play for just one or two terms.

The new Skytrak Launch Monitor and net system was installed in 2018, the gift of the Malvernian Society through the OM Golf Society.

The new practice facility is undercover in a comfortable environment and allows for better training in terms of technique, with the ability to hit off a consistent surface. The launch monitor gives ball flight feedback and sets up long drive challenges and bag mapping, to plot the distance each shot travels. There is also, of course, the added advantage of no cancelled lessons in bad weather.

Our home matches are mostly played at Puckrup Hall GC, where our pupils become junior members, and occasionally matches are played at other local courses.

The main competitions each year are:

ISGA Matchplay Competition in which the College has enjoyed considerable success reaching the Regional Final in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and were fortunate to represent the Region at the National Finals in 2011 and 2013.

HMC Foursomes where we have reached the Regional Finals several times and the National Final, once.

Three Counties League (Gloucestershire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire) for clubs and were the only school that played in this league.

At the end of each academic year the season concludes with our annual tour to the North-West of England where we play matches against Birkenhead School, Rossall School and Merchant Taylors' School, Crosby, which provides us with the opportunity to play several links courses including Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) GC, Fleetwood GC, West Lancs GC and Formby GC.
