Culford School has launched a four year partnership with the Suffolk Junior Golf squad, writes Tom Huggins.
The sponsorship, which sees the boarding school near Bury St Edmunds support the Suffolk Golf Union’s youth teams, is part of its commitment to growing the sport in the region.
Culford’s Head of Golf Lawrence Dodd, who has coached with the union, said: “I am delighted that we have formed a partnership with the Suffolk Golf Union.
“I already had the privilege to work with their U16 and U18 squads and this agreement underlines our pledge to develop the game from grass roots level and beyond.”
“The Suffolk Golf Union shares our commitment to enhancing the sport of golf across the region and increasing accessibility to all. “We are excited by the promise of this new agreement.”
Culford has invested heavily in its golf programme. Delivered by a team of PGA and specialist strength and conditioning professionals, players benefit from access to the indoor golf studio boasting TrackMan technology and the Titleist Performance Institute Plan that measures and refines individual conditioning plans.
The school will continue to develop its facilities, including the introduction of an artificial short-game area, as the school bids to be the best co-educational school for golf in the UK.

Trevor Mason, chairman of Suffolk Junior Golf said: “Culford School has an excellent reputation in developing junior golfers and I am delighted that they will be offering their support to the children who represent the county in all age groups.
“Suffolk is a small county in terms of the number of clubs we have and the resources available to us, so the assistance we will receive is very welcome and will help us to build on the work that has been done in recent years to produce junior golfers able to compete at a high level.”
