A practical training session on the field for the KEJORA region Golf Sports Development Program through the Social Development and Rural Development Division was held on July 15, 2022, Friday at Orchard Golf & Country Club, Kota Tinggi, Johor. This is to expose the participants to the real condition of the golf sport after undergoing training at the Golf Training Center (Driving Range) in Bandar Penawar. All participants showed good improvement during field training sessions. Several participants can also be identified as potentially well-positioned during the upcoming MSSD Johor level golf competition. The performance improvement of the participants was assisted by 3 certified trainers appointed by KEJORA.
The Program began in May 2022 and was attended by 30 children from the KEJORA region aged 7 to 17 years. This is one of the talent programs designed by the PSPD Division to uncover the talents of the children of the KEJORA region in Golf.
The KEJORA received excellent cooperation from the Kota Tinggi, Kluang and Johor Bahru District Education offices in the implementation of this program. Special permission for study clearance has been given to students or students selected for training if it involves a school day. This Program is also a ‘platform’ for participants to prepare to participate in the Johor MSSD golf tournament which will take place in August 2022.
It is hoped that this program can produce golf athletes at the national and international levels in the future.
