THE Oceania Golf School will hold an inter-primary competition at the Novotel Golf Course in Nadi next month.

Schools from Ba, Lautoka, Nadi, Sigatoka, Pacific Harbour and Navua have confirmed entry for the one-day event on August 9.

Oceania Golf School instructor Jimmy Luita said the inter primary competition gives birth to the youngsters in the country.

"This year we have decided to take only beginner levels from all the primary schools," Luita said.

"The juniors who have been playing all this time will only be volunteering at the competition. This is to give the other players an opportunity to compete at their level.

"Once they have gone through the competition, we will then nurture their skills and talent with coaching and training.

"We have partnered with another company Leaders in Development who have the vision in upskilling our youngsters to becoming elite players.

"Arthur De La Mare is the backbone for the Coral Coast area as far as junior golf development is concerned."

The sponsors for the competition are BSP, Total, Nestle and Coastal Rental.

Participating schools: (Ba) St Theresa Primary, DAV Primary; (Lautoka) Drasa Avenue, Lautoka Methodist, St Thomas; (Nadi) Nadi Airport, Namaka Public, Andrews Primary; (Sigatoka) Andhra Primary; (Pacific Harbour) Multi Cultural Primary, Rampur Primary; (Navua) Vashist Muni Primary.
