Westerham Golf Club Chief Professional Frazer Amey donated golf clubs and a bag to support the development and growth of junior golf in Ghana.
The items were donated to Ghana’s burgeoning non-profit charity, Captain One Golf Society.
The Chief Professional said he was motivated to make the donation after hearing about the success story of the Captain One Golf Society children’s project currently underway at all major golf courses in Ghana.
“…as a golfer I’m excited when the underprivileged in society are given hope and an opportunity to showcase their talents and that directly aligns with what Captain One does, I’m very happy to help change the lives of these children.
Mr Amey promised to continue to support young golfers with golf equipment and game equipment.
“I will contact the organization whenever any golf equipment that can help the project grow becomes available.”
Captain One Golf Society President and Founder Pius Ayeh Appiah thanked Mr. Amey for his support and assured him that the equipment would be used for its intended purpose.
He mentioned that Captain One Golf Society has a golf development program for children at the various golf clubs in Ghana. Donated items would therefore be distributed to help train young children in the sport.
He also added that the society is now a fully registered not-for-profit organization, therefore, they would work to make golf a sport for everyone, especially the vulnerable and disadvantaged in society.
The President therefore appealed for more support and urged Ghanaians to demystify the idea that golf was an elite sport.
The Captain One Golf Society is currently preparing for the second edition of the Captain One Kids tournament which will take place at the Royal Golf Club in Kumasi on Friday, January 20, 2023.
