HK Golfer - - Divots -

As part of its ef­forts to pro­mote and de­velop the sport of golf across the ter­ri­tory, the Hong Kong Golf Club an­nounced that its Fan­ling lo­ca­tion will play host to the first In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Golf Tour­na­ment on 14 May 2018. The tour­na­ment - or­gan­ised by the Hong Kong Golf As­so­ci­a­tion, spon­sored by the Hong Kong Golf Club and sup­ported by the Hong Kong Schools Sports Fed­er­a­tion – is open to all sec­ondary schools en­ter­ing a team or teams of no more than four play­ers. Fea­tur­ing com­pe­ti­tions for boys and girls, the tour­na­ment also pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for the HKGA to pro­mote golf in sec­ondary schools city-wide and iden­tify promis­ing young ath­letes.

To sup­port the first In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Golf Tour­na­ment, the HKGC and HKGA are also col­lab­o­rat­ing on a host of ini­tia­tives to as­sist sec­ondary schools in form­ing their own golf teams and sys­tem­at­i­cally pro­vide them with train­ing re­sources. The ini­tia­tives in­clude golf ori­en­ta­tion for sec­ondary school phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teach­ers, golf clubs and equip­ment, train­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ex­changes.

‘We are very pleased to host the first In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Golf Tour­na­ment. As a golf club with over 100 years of his­tory, we are ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing the de­vel­op­ment of young ath­letes and pro­mot­ing this fun sport to the com­mu­nity,’ said Ian Gard­ner, Gen­eral Man­ager of the HKGC.
