-David Leadbetter

David Leadbetter and his world-class team of instructors and performance staff are delighted to offer junior golfers aged 10-18 years an unforgettable summer camp game improvement experience at his world headquarters – LGA ChampionsGate Resort, Florida.

Students will be immersed in a week-long program based on David’s famed “Holistic Approach” to golf instruction. Utilizing 30 plus years’ experience coaching juniors around the world, Leadbetter-Certified coaches will instill players with valuable insight and improvement in the technical, mental, physical, and on-course skills of the game, allowing each junior golfer to take his/her game to the next level. David’s and his team have helped countless Tour Professionals and aspiring junior golfers reach the pinnacle of the sport, including 21 Major winners and 7 World No. 1 players.

The Leadbetter Junior Summer Camps will take place at the expansive full swing and short game practice facilities at LGA's World Headquarters location, home to a number of Tour players, including world No.1 Lydia Ko. Small group sizes also ensure each participant receives plenty of individual attention throughout the camp.

“The teaching culture at the Leadbetter Golf Academy is truly like none other. We treat every student as an individual and place great care in ensuring they leave with a greater knowledge of their game and a plan for continued development and improvement. Juniors who attend the LGA Summer Camps are sure to have a great time and through our new Online Coaching platform, parents will be able to track their progress during the week."
