Ning Li, President of the HKGA said: “Following the recent launch of our Golf For Schools programme, which already has the support of The R&A, our partnership with US Kids Golf is another important development. As we begin to take golf into local primary schools for the first time, not only do we provide access to coaching and facilities for the children but now we can support them with the right equipment as well.”
Walter Yeung, Chief Executive Officer of RSH (Hong Kong) Limited, which distributes US Kids Golf in Hong Kong and Macau, added: “We share the HKGA’s vision to take golf into primary schools and introduce the sport to those who may not otherwise get the opportunity. We are proud to support initiatives which help grow the game in Hong Kong and we will play our part by supplying US Kids Golf equipment and encouraging the children to have fun.”
Launched during last year’s Hong Kong Open, the HKGA’s Golf For Schools programme gives children aged 6 to 12 the chance to try golf at school through a fun and unique training system called ShortGolf. For those children who are inspired by the ShortGolf experience, the HKGA offers a pathway into the sport, starting with a series of coaching clinics at golf courses and driving ranges across Hong Kong.
