The players in these squads receive group and individual support to improve their game which covers golf specific coaching and sport science support.

Currently this support includes - warm weather training camps, sports psychology, strength & conditioning, nutrition & hydration advice, equipment checks (including club & putter fitting), performance lifestyle support, anti-doping workshops, specialist coaching, stats collation and advice from professional tour golfers.

Support is also provided to current international golfers who are not part of the formal squad structure, this is to ensure that players who are likely to represent Wales continue to improve their game.
