Kids learn how to play golf


Several local kids are currently receiving free golf lessons from a Mpumalanga golf champ and golf coach endorsed by the South African Golf Development Board (SAGDB).
This Programme is developed and supported by the South Africa Golf Development Board.
The SAGDB’s main aim is to make golf available to all South Africans throughout different communities.
It believes that by making golf accessible and more appealing to youngsters, it will be able to teach the younger generation of South Africans a sport that has an integral set of rules and values, which can be applied in all spheres of life.
The main goal is to take the game of golf to the children in a community and provide them the chance to develop into elite players.
The programme is free to all as well as providing the practice facilities and equipment for absolutely no cost at all.
The coaching takes place on weekday afternoons at Graceland Country Club.
Stephen Morrison (Bachelor of Sport Science and Recreational Management Hons / PGA Diploma obtained from the University of Pretoria) is providing the coaching on behalf of the SAGDB.
“We currently have 11 children in the programme and will be reaching out to more schools in the near future,” says Stephen.
Sponsors to the SAGDB are Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation, The Sports Trust, Nedbank, The Richer foundation, The Ernie Els Invitational and the Mpumalanga Golf Union.
“Without them nothing would be possible, for more information you can check out the SAGDB’s website at”
Stephen thanks Graceland Country Club for “their willingness to help and develop our future stars in the game of golf by allowing us to use their facilities.”
