The schools use Millbrook's championship golf course for on course training as well as driving range, chipping, pitching and putting greens and bunkers. Classes are run by one of three of the Millbrook Professionals and are based on a ratio of no more than six students to one professional, ensuring each student receives personalised tuition and maximum improvement. We welcome men, women, juniors and corporate events.
We're open to tailoring schools around your needs and dates, where we can and run youth golf schools during the school holidays.
