The Halifax, Huddersfield & District Union of Golf Clubs’ junior team has enjoyed success in the last two seasons. In 2018 the boys won the Yorkshire Inter District Union (YIDU) Junior League for the first time in the Union’s history. In 2019 they were runners up in the league and won the Junior Team Championship for the first time in 35 years. While they were doing that our senior team won their league for the first time in 25 years and were third in the Senior Team Championship.
There is a clear opportunity for boys to progress to the senior team as evidenced by the number of boys who have played for the Senior Team in the last two seasons.
Within our Union we pride ourselves on our coaching pathway developed in 2017 which allows our boys the best opportunities to progress. Our aim is to identify those with the potential and dedication to play in the Union teams and not only that but have the opportunity to progress into the County coaching squads.
There are various routes into our boys’ coaching pathway as follows:-
Frank Greaves is our Teams and Coaching Manager and is available for help, advice and information on 07771 637358 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We cannot over emphasise how important it is for clubs, be it the PGA Professionals, Junior Organisers, to maintain or create a dialogue with us and that includes parents.
In 2020 our focus is to continue finding, developing and nurturing the talent within our clubs and provide the best opportunity of competing at the top of the YIDU Junior and Senior championships.
