  • A variety of training scenarios

  • A compact 9-hole golf course

  • Approach zones

  • A vast Putting Green

The golf staff at the HDN Academy

  • Romain Dury

Our golf sports director, provides technical training. His rich elite level experience, on both the amateur and professional circuits, is a considerable advantage for everyone.

  • Bernard Cabassol

A physical trainer, has recognised experience and expertise in athlete development. The physical dimension (Resistance, explosiveness, coordination, tonicity, agility, etc.) is decisive for the elite level.

  • Maxime Mazaleyrat

A mental coach, supports our golfers in their personal development as physical performance is dependant on the right frame of mind. The purpose of mental preparation is to maintain the effectiveness of movement in a competition situation to move towards efficiency and protect the player from stress inducing factors.


The golf approach in all of its dimensions

As for all of our sporting streams, customisation is a priority for the development of our young golfers. Romain Dury will take this specific assessment, providing an identity profile for each of his pupils, to create a work programme with fully customised development goals.


We have created a benchmark programme for our pupils:


  • 7 hours of group training per week

  • 5 hours of independent practice on the course

  • 12 heures de leçons individuelles réparties sur l’année

  • 12 hours of individual lessons spread over the year 

  • 1.5 hours of club training on Wednesdays

  • At least 3 days of tournament support

  • 2 weekly physical preparation sessions

  • 1 weekly mental preparation session

  • And of course unlimited access to the Academy’s fitness area.


Prospects: the elite level and a very broad range of opportunities...


Based on the goals, dedication, application and rigour of each of our golfers, the elite level can be reached.

But a broad range of opportunities is also available to our golfers upon completion of the baccalaureate. Pupils can:

  • Become a coach

  • Continue their academic trajectory at an American university and participate in their university championship

  • Study for a BTS or go to university, college, business school, etc.
