LTPD: Golf’s ultimate player development resource

(Bernard Brault/ Golf Canada)

Golf’s Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) guide encompasses all aspects of athlete progression—from early childhood through to adulthood. The framework is at the core of Golf Canada’s mission to develop players that can compete at the highest level within the sport.

While serving as a measurement tool for performance, the LTPD guide also focuses on continued efforts to foster life-long engagement with the sport. The 2015 release of the guide’s second iteration elevated the experience for those that utilize the guide by incorporating new interactive elements to separate it from its earlier version (released in 2006).

In addition to the printed document, the LTPD guide is offered through a mobile app, available for free on the app store. To compliment the mobile experience, LTPD also streamlined its own dedicated web portal, providing instant access to up-to-date research and insightful video interviews from industry experts and professionals.

Although specifically targeted at golf professionals, athletes and parents, LTPD also contains valuable information for Golf Course Owners and Superintendents.
