Yorkshire Boys' Golf2024

Boys' Player Pathway

Yorkshire is a very successful county within England Golf, we are always striving to be the best for which we continue to work hard in producing top quality players. The last two years have seen us qualify for the England Golf Boys County Finals, but alas we fell short coming third and then second. The boys have played some tremendous golf over the last year, and I am confident that we will see success in “Team Yorkshire” again in 2024! The Boys are already looking forward to the season ahead which commences in earnest in May with our first County match against Northumberland Boys.

Within Yorkshire we pride ourselves on our Boy’s Player Pathway allowing our Boy’s to have the very best opportunities to the various levels of coaching and support throughout their time with us.

Our aim is to identify those boys with the potential and dedication required to play not only at a county level, but potentially at National level, this is something we try to achieve on a regular basis. this is something we try to achieve on a regular basis. This comes down to our boy’s being offered coaching at a very high level from some of the most experienced coaches around, Steve Robinson, our lead coach and England Golf coach who was awarded “Coach of the Year” 2016, 2017, 2021 & 2022. Given the size of Yorkshire we are supported by a team of coaches. In 2023 we saw the addition to that team of Andrew Rossington – professional at Lindrick Golf Club.

There are various entry points into our Boys’ coaching and these are as follows:

  • YUGC Identification Day for Under 13’s in August each year
  • Union nomination of prospective high performer
  • Club nomination of prospective high performer
  • YUGC Boys’ Championships performance
  • Open events

All applications are assessed by the County Boys’ Manager along with the coaches, to consider their ability to be included within the winter/spring coaching programme.

The chart below shows the pathway of our coaching programme.

Our County programme is an addition to their own coaching; we are not here to be in conflict with their current coach, but rather to add further value and support in their development.

The Boys are expected to take notes at each session and discuss further with their own coaching professional. You will appreciate we are a very large county and for those who are successful in selection, this does not mean they will be involved each year until they attain 18. No; each year the County Boys’ Manager and coaches undertake a review which is based on various factors, including current game, ability, attendance, dedication, attitude, willingness to learn and improve to name a few!

This ultimately means there is no guarantee of being invited back; however, it does not preclude them from being involved at a later stage.
