Baod­ing range will help grow game

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

China’s first work­shop-style golf train­ing fa­cil­ity opened in Baod­ing, He­bei prov­ince, on Satur­day — part of a pro­gram aimed at in­tro­duc­ing the sport to thou­sands of schools in more than 100 coun­ties.

The fa­cil­ity, which is China’s largest in­door range, has 38 tee boxes and 20 pro coaches.

Tang Yi­long, pres­i­dent of the pro­mo­tion com­pany head­ing the project, said the goal is to let or­di­nary cit­i­zens in China’s third- and fourth-tier cities en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing golf

Wei Qingfeng, an of­fi­cial with the China Golf As­so­ci­a­tion, said the project will boost the CGA’s ob­jec­tive of hav­ing 30 mil­lion cit­i­zens play­ing golf by 2020.
