The School has its own 'on campus' practice facilities with the construction of a 'Huxley' 9 hole artificial putting green, driving bays and bunker and chipping areas. Indoor facilities offering innovative practice programmes for both beginners and advanced pupils complement the excellent opportunities provided by The Golf Academy partner clubs: Craigielaw Golf Club, near Aberlady; Archerfield Links, Near North Berwick, Musselburgh Old Links and Royal Musselburgh Golf Club.
2015 heralds the launch of an exciting new venture – The Loretto Golf Academy Indoor Centre – The Scottish Golf National Training Facility. This stunning new facility is being built within the School’s former swimming complex.
The Loretto Golf Academy Indoor Centre
Comprising an indoor driving range, short game facility to include chipping, pitching and putting, putting analysis, and indoor teaching studio complete with video analysis and Trackman. The centre will reinforce Loretto’s status as one of the top golf facilities of its kind in the UK, whilst also providing an invaluable practice resource for our pupils.
It is expected the new centre, which will enable golf practice throughout the year, will quickly become the very best indoor golf facility in Scotland and the best schools’ facility of its kind in Europe.
The centre will offer golf to all 600 pupils at Loretto through PE, games and activities. The Golf Academy’s development pathways start at 5 years old and allow pupils to develop their game as they progress through Loretto School. The centre will also improve the coaching and practice facilities for the 50 strong development and senior squad players, offering them the best possible support to take their game to the next level.
