L&RGU County Boys Training, Development & Recruitment 

The purpose of the L&RGU’s Training & Squad Performance Programme is to progress Leicestershire’s young golfing talent through the pyramid of County Boys team tiers ranging from U14’s, U16’s and U18’s to ultimately play for the L&RGU Mens 1st team and beyond. This is achieved by offering young qualifying golfers playing opportunities and non-technique based golf training that is designed to improve the golfers tournament preparation, play and performance.

The training takes place at various venues around the County and is in small groups, with lots of opportunities to play. The County training program is a fantastic opportunity to take your game to the next level.
