Head of Golf:

  • PK Ramnarain

Golf at Hilton College has grown significantly in the last couple of years, which is in line with the tremendous growth in junior golf worldwide driven by Tiger Woods and in South Africa, the success of Ernie Els. There are currently more than 100 active golfers and more than 20 boys have single figure handicaps. Golf is offered as a mainstream sport during the First Term, second Half of the Third Term and in the Fourth Term. We have decided not to offer golf as an ‘Opt’ sport whereby boys play golf only, however if players meet certain performance criteria, they have the option to be considered to play golf full time. We have a resident golf coach, Sean Ludgater, who has made a significant impact on the boy’s golf.

Facilities

350m Driving Range with distance markers Short game practice facility for pitching, chipping and bunker play. All weather synthetic practice putting green (Officially opened by Gary Player on Sunday 15 October 2006) Innovative practice drills and skills tests. Recently we have erected a shelter with 5 driving bays which can be used in inclement weather. We have also planted a Bent grass green which is regarded as the best putting green at the moment.  The tee box has also been upgraded.  The facility at the moment can be compared with the best in South Africa.
