A total of 79 students from 20 schools took part in the one-day tournament as part of the HKGA and HKGC’s on-going 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.
