Derbyshire Union of Golf Clubs would like to thank Taskers for their continued and generous support of our initiatives to grow and develop junior golf in Derbyshire.

We have used the monies to help support several of our initiatives which provide a pathway in Derbyshire for young players to develop their skills


The Derbyshire Futures Tour is aimed at young golfers under the age of 14, many without handicaps. It provides a platform for their first competitive experience, enabling the young players to compete with each other, interact socially and gain valuable competition experience on new courses.

The events are run through the summer months and played over 9 holes.


The Derbyshire Golf Academy programme forges on from Strength to Strength, with 43 young players receiving coaching through the Academy programme.

We have also coached a further 16 players in the Derbyshire Golf Academy U16 Development Squad and 20 in the U14 Development Squad.

The programme is showing signs of success in identifying young talent, 4 out the 6 players who recently won the English Boys Midland Group Regional qualifier for the English Boys County Finals have all received coaching through the Derbyshire Golf Academy programme.
