GRAEME Bell, the name at the helm for the Fiji national golf team wants to take the sport to a higher level.

And to do so, Bell plans to conduct clinic at grassroots level to build a solid foundation for the betterment of the sport.

The Pearl Resort Golf Club general manager was given the top job to coach the national team earlier this week.

Bell said he was pleased with the announcement. He said the main focus was to prepare the national side for the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year.

"It's a great honour to coach the Fiji team," he said.

"It is going to be a challenge but I am looking forward to it. The goal now is the Pacific Games in PNG."

Bell said he would be out in various primary schools to conduct clinics.

"I will be going around, conducting golf clinics in the country. There had not been junior golfers coming from various clubs for the time being and that is what we want to build and develop. So going out to schools can solve this matter."

Bell's contract expires on December next year.

"I hope to continue if given the opportunity again," he added.
