Student Profile

Team BC Golf member James Lloyd

Team BTC Golf is challenging, fun and a great chance to develop skills, both in a small group and one to one. Team BTC helped me learn to cope under pressure and gave me more time to practise my golf. My hard work paid off when I shot net par in the Somerset Schools Tournament, it was an amazing feeling. I found myself constantly learning and taking advanced techniques and strategy on to the course.”

Team BTC Golf provided me with new opportunities and experiences, which I would never have had otherwise, especially qualifying to play in the British Colleges and winning a gold medal for the South West team. The coaches are enthusiastic and supportive and the facilities are fantastic.”
