Golf is perceived as a sport for the rich. However it is not easy to learn and requires strict clothing etiquette under prolonged, exposed conditions.
During matches players need to be very aware of their performance. The complex rules introduces many opportunities for penalties. Players need to respect others and mark their scores under directions. It is therefore a sport with which youth can become independent and learn to solve problems maturely.
Mr Ray Fung has 20 years of golf experience. He has joined the Hong Kong Golf Club as a professional player and is now under the training programme of British PGA.
Mr James Wong has been playing golf for over 20 years. Between 1996 and 2002 he was the Hong Kong Golf Team Representative, winning several championships for Hong Kong. Since 2003, he turned professional and won silver medal in the National Games of China in 2014.
Sharing & Feedback
It is a great opportunity to the Golf Club, we try to encourage any players to take up the sport, not only learning the skills but also the integrity and the history of golf. Having the chance to teach the kids from day 1, we are confident that they could start playing at the golf course after 6 months.

Playing golf has made me more concentrated in daily life, which improves my academic performance. I have broadened my horizon here since joining this programme.
