There was great excitement in both London and Dorset on Monday evening, 9th September, as Canford took home the prestigious ‘Public School of the Year’ trophy at the annual Tatler Schools Awards
Canford Golf Club
Within the grounds of Canford School there is an excellent 9 hole golf course. It boasts tight fairways, a winding stream, tricky greens and bunkers, it is a good test of golf for players of all standards.
This facility is available to all pupils to use in their leisure time or as an activity, and they can sign up for golf as a main sport and then it becomes a little more serious. When the weather is unfavourable we have access to a local driving range, which can be useful in the winter months.
The golf squad is run by enthusiastic staff and expert coaching is supplied by PGA qualified coach Kelly Hanwell.
Kelly has won the English Schools Championship, captained the England Girls team and followed the golf scholarship route to America before becoming a PGA coach, so she is fully qualified to support and advise any of our pupils who might be considering this direction post Canford.
