THE future of golf in Lautoka looks bright after a partnership agreement was signed by FNU top brass and Lautoka Golf Club officials yesterday.

FNU vice chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand said he had signed a memorandum of understanding on behalf of the students and staff members of FNU to become honorary members of the Lautoka Golf Club.

"We have entered in the MOU where staff members and students of FNU are honorary members of the club," he said.

"The intention is to develop the game whereby the students are trained by professional golfers to become national reps.

"There are around 13,000 FNU students who will be honourary members of this club which is a huge boost to the club and also to the sport."

Lautoka golf chairman of trustees Raymond Singh said the MOU signing marked a new beginning for the club since its humble beginning in 1931.

"This is the first time to have a partnership with the FNU and at the same time to attract new members with the aim to produce national reps,"he said.

"We will be offering free training at the same time we will provide golf clubs to our new members.

"Through the partnership with FNU, we are planning to construct an academy to promote the sport.

"We have been running this club from 1931 and we are proud to form a partnership with FNU."
