TGC offers an unusually high standard of self catered accommodation both in the UK and in Portugal. In both locations students will share the cooking, shopping and cleaning. In the UK students will usually be in single rooms in houses of four at Crylla Valley Cottages close to the College and our teaching base, St Mellion Golf Resort.
At the beginning of January, TGC moves to the Portuguese Algarve for Semester 2. Here we are based at the Oceanico Amendoeira Resort. Students are most likely to be housed in T2 shared apartments. All housing is on the golf resort and within walking distance of the clubhouse, classrooms and first tees. There is an option to upgrade to different accommodation at both locations, for instance to a single room in Portugal.
Both St Mellion and Amendoeira offer truly world class golfing facilities. Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Christie O’Connor Jnr designed the courses at these international resorts and they offer the perfect environment to take your golf to the next level as part of the TGC programmes. You will play golf several times a week on these testing Championship courses as part of your studies.
Practice facilities at St Mellion and Amendoeira are excellent, with large driving ranges at both, plus a floodlit Par 3 course in Portugal. All TGC students enjoy unlimited range access as part of the programmes.
Physical training is a key part of developing an athletic platform from which to play Professional Golf.
Both St Mellion and Amendoeira have good Gym facilities and TGC students will work with our highly trained staff on specially designed programmes to aid Golf performance. The Gyms are also available to students to use at leisure.
