The AFGOLF youth program is a very professional way for young players to make a step into better performance in Belgium but also on the international scene. It’s the program between the lesson the players receive from the homeclub and the national team being supervised by the Royal Belgian Golf Federation. The program prepares its best players in various domains of the game such as mental, physical, technical.

The AFGOLF groups are divided in 3 smaller groups based on the age of the players. That way, we can propose adequate trainings and work very precisely depending on the level of the players. We can adapt the physical and mental work that will meet their goals and motivation.
- Birdie group (U14)
- Eagle group (U16 & U18)
- Albatros group (19-23years old)
The AFGOLF coaching team really promotes new ways of training in groups and offers a wide range of exercises in order to give the best experience to the young players. The 3 groups also train together to reinforce the team spirit and allow the players to share their different experience to one and other.
