Aberdeen Hall Golf Academy

Aberdeen Hall is proud to be building a tradition of sporting excellence. The Aberdeen Hall Golf Academy was founded in 2015/2016. In the Golf Academy, students train year round with award winning CPGA instructor Clay Stothers. Students will develop a passion for active living and giving back to the community by increasing their knowledge and skills in the sport of golf through the AHGA. Participants in the programme will be expected to play golf outside of school time, be positive representatives of Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School and themselves. They will be encouraged to work and volunteer at local facilities, be involved in the organization of tournaments, and assist younger or more inexperienced players. Elite players will be encouraged to pursue golf to the level that their work ethic and skills allow.

Learn More About Clay Stothers, CPGA

Personally, it has been a perfect match working with Aberdeen Hall. The core values that Aberdeen Hall instills into their students goes hand in hand with golf. The biggest satisfaction I receive in coaching is the relationships that I have been able to build with the students and the process of working with each student to reach their goals. I continualy receive compliments from our membership at The Okanagan Golf Club when they have played with a student from the AHGA. AHGA has been a great addition to our club.
