A to­tal of 79 stu­dents from 20 schools took part in the one-day tour­na­ment as part of the HKGA and HKGC’s on­go­ing ef­forts to pro­mote golf and nur­ture talented young golfers. HKGA are work­ing to­gether hand in hand with HKGC (Fan­ling) to launch a host of ini­tia­tives in sup­port of the first In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Golf Tour­na­ment, in­spir­ing young golfers through ex­changes with the HK ju­nior squad, seek­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with golf brands to spon­sor golf clubs and equip­ment, and sup­port­ing schools with train­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ex­per­tise.

HKGA es­ti­mates that there are about 60,000 golfers in Hong Kong ac­cord­ing to data col­lected from var­i­ous sources. To fur­ther pro­mote golf, HKGA or­gan­ises a ‘Golf for Schools’ pro­gramme in which 500 stu­dents learn to play golf each year. HKGA sees the In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Golf Tour­na­ment, open to all sec­ondary schools with sup­port from the Hong Kong Schools Sports Fed­er­a­tion, a very good plat­form for pro­mot­ing golf to sec­ondary school stu­dents city-wide.
