The Hendon Golf Club in London has donated golf equipment for the development of juvenile golf in Ghana.
The equipment which was presented to the President and Founder of Captain One Golf Society, Mr. Pius Ayeh Appiah, was geared towards the promotion and growth of the Captain One Golf Society and golf in Ghana.
Presenting the items to the Society, Mr Matt Deal, Head Professional at Hendon Golf Club said, “the members of Hendon Golf Club are very pleased that the equipment they donated will be used to promote golf in Ghana and hope that many people are introduced to the wonderful sport.”
The club donated practice balls, trolleys, shoes, clubs and bags for the development of the sport.
Mr Appiah on his part thanked the members for their kind gesture and assured them that the equipment would be used for its intended purpose.
He mentioned that Captain One Golf Society has a kid’s golf development programme across the various golf clubs in Ghana and added that the items donated would be distributed to train the young kids in the sport.
He called for more support and urged Ghanaians to debunk the notion that golf was a sport for the elite.
In attendance was the captain of Akwaaba Golf Society UK, Patrick Agbeko, who also thanked the Club on behalf of Captain One Golf Society and requested that other golf clubs do same to help with the development of golf.
