THIS season's Fiji Golf Club Junior Program was hailed a huge success even before the competition finished.
This is because of the large number of children that participated in the clinics earlier this week at the Vatuwaqa Golf Course in Suva.
Club junior golf co-ordinator Veramu Rokotavaga said 48 juniors were part of the clinic and competed in the two-day tournament which began yesterday.
"We have had 48 kids from Nadi, Ba, Lautoka, Pacific Harbour and Suva in the clinics and the tournament which is sponsored by the Waidamudamu Group and Bennion Family," he said.
"The program has been very successful because it is the largest number that we have had in the program at one time.
"We had 12 new juniors come in while the ones who have been coming over the past few years are back with us."
Meanwhile, Masi Naupoto is defending the junior title and was among the impressive golfers on day one competition yesterday.
"This is his last year in the junior competition and I think he would want to leave a good impression.
