The Kimberley College Golf Academy – in partnership with the Carbrook Golf Club – was created to meet the needs of elite junior players. The senior squad comprises of players who are competing regularly in a high level of golf competition. The development squad targets younger players who are not yet competing at the elite level, but are still involved in regular competition. During Years 11 and 12, Golf Academy students can even choose to undertake Recreation Studies: Golf as one of the six subjects studied whilst completing senior school.
