Applications open for 2023/4 England Golf Regional Squads
Online applications are now open for England Golf’s 2023/4 Regional Squads – which aim to support the development of elite boys and girls across the country.
Each year, England Golf seeks talented youngsters to form 20 regional coaching squads for training over the winter months. Young golfers (under 18) can apply for the boys’ and girls’ regional coaching programme for one year and the DiSE program for two years.
The Regional Squads provide players with coaching from experts in their field – JJ Vallely leading the north girls’ squad and Andy Paisley coaching the boys’ squad – through training camps which make up the core of the coaching programme. In addition, players may have the opportunity to compete in inter-regional matches, one-to-one sessions as well as specific tournament preparation camps. Each squad will be supported by a coach, manager and a strength and conditioning coach to give players the best opportunity to progress within the game.
Past Masters champion Danny Willett and former AIG Women’s Open winner Georgia Hall are among the graduates of the England regional training programme, along with England internationals Jess Baker, Rosie Belsham and Maggie Whitehead.
