train play­ers. Its de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes would not be com­pleted with de­vel­op­ments on of­fi­cials, coaches, ad­min­is­tra­tors… etc.

Thanks to our Chair­man of Rules and Tour­na­ment, Dr Brian Choa, who have been whole­heart­edly pro­mot­ing the rule of golf for as long time as we could re­mem­ber. His grad­u­ates had just been in­creased by 55 re­cently af­ter an­other R&A Level 1 Rules Sem­i­nar in Fe­bru­ary. Among them is our new Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer who has, luck­ily, passed with good marks too!

Two of our se­nior of­fi­cials, John Ng and Danny Ho, have re­cently trav­eled to St. An­drews at­tend­ing the R&A Level 3 Tour­na­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tors & Ref­er­ees School. The Level 3 ex­am­i­na­tion is the high­est level one can reach and the ex­am­i­na­tion is done un­der high pres­sure as I was told. Ng and Ho, again, did proud for Hong Kong by pass­ing the Level 3 with merit and dis­tinc­tion re­spec­tively. One can­not imag­ine with an es­ti­mated golfing pop­u­la­tion of only 60,000 golfers in Hong Kong ac­cord­ing to one un­of­fi­cial sur­veys, we have over 15 R&A qual­i­fied Level 3 of­fi­cials. Would this be a record per capita?
