New golf coaching programme for youngsters

Front Page

A new Leinster Golf Development Coaching Programme aimed at 12 year olds and under has just been launched with the objective of providing a developmentally appropriate foundation to support their improvement in golf. 

​The Programme will also facilitate improved alignment of player pathways within the Talent Development Environment and assist players who may wish to transition onto the GUI HP Programme. 

Considering changes in 2017 with the introduction of the GUI's HP Programme, Leinster Golf recognises that effective Talent Identification is a continuous process and should not be dependent on a young player's performance during a single assessment.

Therefore, players will have a number of opportunities to register/be nominated to participate in a structured programme which will permit a more effective and efficient development of young players golfing talent and ensure a more coherent pathway between all levels of the game.
