Golf Centre of Excellence

At GEMS FirstPoint School our mission is to provide our gifted and talented students with a first-class education and a world-class golf coaching programme that holistically prepares them for collegiate and professional golf.

Working exclusively with the Claude Harmon 3 Performance Golf Academy at The Els Club, Sports City, our partnership offers an exceptional opportunity for young golfers to pursue their academic and vocational aspirations, whilst still fully focusing on their training and coaching. This unique pathway ensures that elite level junior golfers gain valuable qualifications and excel practically, providing a pathway into the professional game through scholarships to university or professional coaching centres.
