ORGANISERS of the kids golf clinics at the Fiji Golf Club in Vatuwaqa during the school holidays have hailed the initiative a huge success.
Teaching golf professional, Veramu Rokotavaga said the clinics lasted for two weeks and generated a lot of interest.
"We had clinics on the first week of the school holidays and in the second week, we devoted Monday and Tuesday to clinics and Wednesday and Thursday to a tournament," Rokotavaga said.
"We had over 30 children take part in the clinics and tournament and this is an increase compared to our past clinics," he said.
He said the children involved in the clinics and tournament showed promise and with the proper guidance would become golfers to watch out for in the future.
"They have a lot of potential and it was shown in the close scores recorded between the kids.
"They can get better at the sport if they continue using the basics and the basics are taught during our clinics.
"It is important for these kids to regularly attend clinics and learn the basics because it is very important and will be handy if they want to become professional golfers."
Rokotavaga said more clinics would be hosted by the Fiji Golf Club in the near future and he had asked interested participants to attend.
"We will continue with our clinics and we will release information about it and when it will be held so please come down and learn golf with us," he said.
Meanwhile, the tournament last week was won by Mahatma Gandhi Memorial form five student Umefia Naisara.
