Helping young golfers fulfill their maximum potential
The Flagship Programme at ECM Golf Academy is a unique combination of professional golf training and world-class academics, providing aspiring student-athletes with a comprehensive training plan designed to achieve maximum progress in a short period of time. Participants will follow the English National Curriculum together with their peers at Epsom College in Malaysia and enjoy the full British boarding school experience. Alongside technical skill improvement, the Programme places a strong emphasis on character development – fostering traits such as perseverance, accountability and integrity – that will benefit participants long after they leave school. The Programme focuses on providing the tools and resources required to help young passionate golfers realise their full potential, whilst achieving peak physical and mental performance. The holistic training philosophy at the ECM Golf Academy covers all aspects of the game, from technical skill development, specialist shot-making, short game and putting to mental conditioning, fitness and strategy.
Weekly Training Schedule
The ECM Golf Academy uses various methods and technology to identify areas of improvement in each student’s game. These areas could fall under Technical, Mental, Physical, Shot making, or Strategy. Based on our findings and observations we can personalise the student’s practice plan. The practice plan will change from time to time to ensure the time spent practicing is producing results.
