County Academy Program

The Leicestershire & Rutland County Golf Partnership runs a Talent Academy Program in order to support development of junior golfers that haven't yet been picked up by county level elite squads.

The Talent Academies offer children of all abilities the chance to get high quality coaching and personal development in golf.

The first Talent Academies ran in 2009/10 with over 90 young people involved, increasing the depth of talent in Leicestershire & Rutland. Players involved had their own personalised player programmes, specifically designed to develop their golfing ability to its fullest potential.
Those involved receive coaching from some of the best coaches in the county, as well as gaining access to specially designed competitive golf to test their skills under competition pressure.
The program works on the basis of cutting edge theories in talent development and skill aquisition. It promises to challenge the young people and accelerate their development in Golf.
The County Academy Programme 2013-2017 provides opportunities for golf participants aged 14 to 18 ‘to be the best they can be’ and to increase their success, enjoyment of and participation in the game.
Over the last few years many of our players from the county academy programme have progressed to county squads. The boys team were also the winners of the five counties CAP competition in 2012.  
Our CAP coordinator is Ian Lyner (PGA Professional). If you would like to enquire further about the CAP programme then please email
