Tour Player Development Program

Player development packages can be tailored to each players need.

Junior Golf Academy

Junior Group lessons

Juniors who started through the introduction phases at the Golf Academy will now move up the this level of coaching and generally speaking this level is very important to lay down the FUNdimentals for a good player things like movement, skills, basics (correct grip, aim & stance) are still extremely important at this phase.

A lot of people think that once you have learnt the basic skills of a sport you immediately advance to a higher level of training. But this is often where we see people make the mistake with coaching children, they move on to more difficult skills too fast and that frustrates the children and often they stop participating because it is not FUN anymore. We saw some of the biggest successes in recent months because more and more children stayed in group lesson format for longer, until they are able to successfully master a skill.

Junior Individual Lessons

Juniors who successfully master the skills required in the group lessons, who have become members of a golf club and often start participating in some or other golf tournaments, need a bit more individual attention. In these individual lessons we use our years of coaching experience along with the swing philosophy to individually improve each player to his/her maximum potential, we utilise video analysis to demonstrate the problem areas in a players technique and also use it to compare with old technique to compare the technique of the old vs. new.
