‘We’ll create opportunities for young girls through golf’

The President of the Captain One Golf Society, Mr Pius Ayeh Appiah has expressed the Society’s commit­ment to use golf to raid the streets of underprivileged kids and guide them to make a life out of the sport.

Mr Appiah said this on Saturday after receiving a special award on behalf of the Society at the 47th Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Awards.

The award was to acknowledge the Society’s contribution to the development of golf in the coun­try especially with its Captain One Kid’s Project and its impact on the youth.

The aim of the project was to raise future golfers from deprived communities in the country and create an opportunity for them to develop their potential.

In a chat with the Times Sports, Mr Appiah said “We are commit­ted to using golf to transform society. Our kids’ project which has been ongoing for some time now would benefit a lot of young girls from orphanages or deprived homes,” he stated.

“We hope to produce some of the best golfers to compete at the global stage through the Captain One Kid’s Project,” he stated.

Mr Appiah thanked SWAG for the recognition, adding that it would go a long way to motivate the Society to continue working hard to put smiles on the faces of young people through golf.

He urged the corporate sector to support the Kid’s Project which would not only help raise future golfers but promote sports to a large extent.

“We believe that golf is for all and we need to have everyone on board to help grow the sport in the country,” he added.

The Captain One Golf Society held its sixth Major Championship at the Royal Golf Club in Kumasi last week with over 100 golfers participating in both the main event and the Kid’s Championship.

Nsuta Golf Club member, Craig Tandoh won the main event for professionals with young female golfer, Hudu Zakiya from the Safe-Child Advocacy Care Home winning the Kid’s event.
