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.

Sharing & Feedback

Many people are still under the impression that golf is a noble sport that without money you cannot play and succeed. Actually, a lot of golfers worked their way up from poverty, including me as well. Students may think they have merely 1 session a week, while the wealthy can afford up to 4 times more. But I used to train only once a week as well.

You can find inspirations from every kind of sport and golf is no exception. As long as you persevere, you will eventually achieve something like me. At the end of the day, even if we do not reach the top, I believe we will still take away something with us from golf.

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.
