A Letter From David Leadbetter

Throughout my years teaching I’ve had the opportunity to work with players of all ages, but helping junior players to be their best has always been uniquely rewarding.

In 1992, the original Leadbetter Junior Golf Academy was born and attracted young players from all over the world, whether college or professional golf was their aim. Many world-class players came out of the program, including the likes of Paula Creamer, Jessica Korda, Julieta Granada, Sean O’Hair, Chen Tsung Pan and Emiliano Grillo. In fact, many of today’s junior golf academies took direct inspiration from our original model, with a vast number of the world’s top junior golf coaches graduating from Leadbetter certification programs.

The new Leadbetter Junior Golf Academy opened at our state-of-the-art facility in ChampionsGate, FL in 2017. With our many years of combined experience, my team and I have designed a holistic program guaranteed to help young players reach their full potential in golf and in life.

The Leadbetter name has been synonymous with instructional excellence for more than three decades. We have helped professionals win dozens of PGA and LPGA tournaments, including 22 major championships, and helped thousands of amateurs enjoy the game at their own pace.

We have always focused the bulk of our attention on helping young golfers to achieve their dreams. We look forward to utilizing our knowledge and expertise to help your child do the same.
