Boys are encouraged to practice often and to learn from those with whom they play. Whether it is to cut a few shots off their handicap or to get their first birdie, eagle or hole-in-one, the boys should look forward to being out onto the course and playing golf.
Prep has two teams of four boys who play in the Inter-schools Golf League on Tuesday afternoons. The A team consist of the top four boys and the four places in the B team are rotated amongst the rest of the boys, based on their Friday results.
On Friday afternoons, all Prep boys have the opportunity to play nine holes of golf at a nearby course, in order to challenge for places in the teams. If there are any boys who do not belong to a golf club and do not have a handicap, Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in Linksfield have a partnership with St John’s, offering discounted joining fees for junior golfers.
