As well as a regular activity slot that the pupils can opt for three days a week, keen golfers are also actively encouraged to play a few holes in their spare time.
Training and fixtures
There are several U14 and U15 fixtures throughout the year, but the majority of the team golf is played by the senior pupils; home matches are played at Bramley Golf Club, the local club with whom Cranleigh has a strong connection.
The senior team will usually play one match a week, on Tuesdays, and also compete in the HMC Foursomes competition, the Schools’ Invitational tournament at West Sussex Golf Club, the Surrey Schools Handicap and Scratch Championships and other schools Invitation events in the area.
The team play a selection of friendly matches against other schools and a bi-annual fixture against the Old Cranleighan Golf Society playing for the Gordon Taylor Trophy.
The school golf championship takes place every Summer and the winner receives the Olunoyo Trophy.
Every Summer, a group of seniors has been invited to travel to the Open Championship, where we run one of the 18th-hole leaderboards for the duration of the tournament. It is always a very special week, and a unique chance for Cranleighans to watch their golfing heroes in the flesh, as well as experience the ebb and flow of a major tournament as it unfolds.
