Tailored coaching programmes


The philosophy behind our junior programmes is to develop athletes first and competitive golfers thereafter. The most important goal is to foster a love for the game by creating a fun and challenging environment in which to learn.

Private lessons are available for junior players who wish to concentrate on their individual needs, whether through a single session or a series of lessons in an encouraging atmosphere. We concentrate on drawing the very best performance from each junior golfer, helping them to reach their potential as a player and an athlete.

Our PGA Youth Development Programme takes a total beginner and instils a sound understanding of the fundamentals of the game through a series of 12-week courses. The curriculum covers everything from learning the swing and putting skills to the importance of footwork and speed. Students also lean the history of the game and essential etiquette whilst improving fitness levels and overall athletic development.

The Player Development Programme helps junior players learn and enhance their golfing abilities and align them to specific goals. It also provides an opportunity for them to practice outside of scheduled lessons. Players may also track their progress not only with their instructors, but with the CoachNow platform as well.


HKGTA’s PGA Junior Performance Team is a group-based coaching programme that encourages learning and skill development through a curriculum designed specifically for junior golf teams. Training is overseen by professional PGA coaches, with sessions including on-course, short game and hitting station instruction.

The Performance Team is carefully structured to offer junior golfers the very best support in improving their abilities in a team-based environment, while also preparing them for advancement to the Elite Team.


The PGA Elite Boys and Girls Team curriculums are designed to give every player an opportunity to excel by assisting them to reach new levels within their game. The Elite programme sees players work on their mental training and course management skills, alongside perfecting all types of shot-making essentials for elite-level play.

Each team member is fully assessed prior to the programme’s commencement, enabling our PGA coaches to compile the information required to enhance the quality of learning and performance, while building bespoke practice schedules.

The Elite Team learns in a group-based environment while also being supported by a personalised programme taught by PGA professionals, utilising state-of-the-art technology. This programme incorporates specialised fitness training to ensure that every player is at their peak performance and always tournament-ready.
