Golf - Hurstpierpoint College


Golf at Hurst is all about inclusivity. From first-timers to international players, all pupils have access to year-round coaching and practice. Golf is a sport of passion and dedication and at Hurst we are driven by our pupils’ enthusiasm to improve at every level.


Golf is a games option for all pupils. Training and fixtures are played all year round.

Fixtures and tournaments

Fixtures take place from the start of the school year to Michaelmas half term and from Lent half term to the end of the school year. 

During fixture season there are two training sessions per week, with professional tuition, at the Burgess Hill Driving Range. Our students also take part in fixtures and practice rounds once week at East Sussex National Golf Course and other local courses. In the winter, there are three sessions per week at the driving range for players of all standards, however elite players have more game-focused tuition, concentrating on shot making rather than technique.

Our Golf team plays against other schools and competes in a range of competitions such as the ISGA Knockouts, HMC Foursomes, HMC Singles, West Sussex Invitational and Alexander Quin Invitational.


With our countryside location, we are fortunate to have multiple golf courses within easy reach in both East and West Sussex. Our students are able to practice their skills at a local golf centre and driving range just seven minutes away (by minibus).

Hurst has given me the facilities and the potential to push my game to the next level and without them I don’t think that I would be at the level I am at now. Joe Sullivan, Jacksonville University Division 1 golfer

Our golfers practice year round and play matches against schools across the country. We provide professional coaching for all abilities and offer opportunities and support for those who wish to pursue golf after school. Will Carroll, Head of Golf
