Golfing boys are invited to put their names forward for the Leinster Golf Development Coaching programme this summer.

The aim of the programme is to provide a developmentally appropriate foundation to support their improvement in golf.

Additionally, the Development Coaching Programme will 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.

Payers 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.
