Driving the Game in Derbyshire

The Derbyshire Golf Academy is a player training programme aimed at young players 8-18 years of age.


The programme aims to design, manage and implement a structured, player centred training academy programme within Derbyshire, utilising highly skilled and appropriately trained coaches.  




The Derbyshire Golf Academy programme has 3 main objectives:


1.    To provide an inclusive coaching system which will support players                 aged  8 - 18 from all backgrounds with equanimity.


2.    To endeavour to create high quality coaches, with appropriate support        and training opportunities delivering the  best quality coaching to the            young people involved in the programme.


3.    To underpin the County Training programme and develop players                  capable of representing the County in the future.


Clubs are invited each year to nominate players for consideration for selection to the Academy following an assessment process.


The 2014/15 programme is open for applications. Please download a form and send to
