BOYS PLAYER & COACHING PATHWAY
The Halifax, Huddersfield and District Union of Golf Clubs (HHDUGC) wishes to be a successful District Team within the Yorkshire Inter District Union (YIDU) league and Championships.
In 2018 the junior team won the league for the first time since its inception in 2003.
Other successes have been few:
YIDU Senior league won in 1994. The league started in 1985
YIDU Team Championship in 1985. The Championship started in 1974
Junior Team Championship, never. The Championship started in 1985
The Pathway was introduced to achieve the goal of winning one of the Championships by 2024. Of course success came early and this has whetted the appetite for further success.
In the HHDUGC we wish our juniors to have the best opportunities to the various levels of coaching and support and indeed to help further their careers and advance into the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs (YUGC) coaching pathway.
Our aim is to identify those boys with the potential and dedication required to play not only at District level but also County Level. The present Yorkshire Boys Champion is from one of our clubs.
There are several ways to access the coaching programme;
- HHDUGC Under 13 Identification Day
- Nomination by club Junior Organiser or Professional
- Performance in the HHDUGC junior competitions
- Performance in open events i.e away from the home club
Each application will be assessed by the coaching administrator and manager to consider their ability to be included within the winter and spring coaching programme.
The coaching offered by the HHDUGC is designed to compliment that being received already by the boys from their existing coach (es) and add value and support in their development.
