“It’s important when it comes to the development of sports because this is an individual sport where it takes a lot of patience, time and dedication to allow each player to develop their own skills so that you know the juniors for today can be future golfers for tomorrow.”
Tournament Director Mahmood Buksh says the young golfers have been part of the junior’s clinic program throughout the year.
“so there were two clinics a month so we had about 18 clinics up to November and for December we have this tournament where we see where the juniors stand on their performance so that’s what we had the tournament for.”
It was a stroke event where players below eight years play three holes and above eight play six holes.
