The Royal Bhutan Golf Federation, recently affiliated to The R&A, and the Ruchill Community Golf Course project in Glasgow, Scotland are just two recipients set to benefit from a range of funding initiatives announced by The R&A. Both will receive substantial consignments of new sets of junior clubs.
The Golf Club of Lebanon in Beirut has recently received reconditioned greenkeeping machinery. Warren Hills in Zimbabwe will also receive equipment and further shipments are being sent to clubs in Kenya, Malawi and Zambia.
In announcing the awards, Duncan Weir, The R&A’s director of golf development said, “We remain strongly committed to promoting golf both nationally and internationally through funding generated by The Open Championship in a number of ways. This is likely to continue as we seek to encourage the expansion of the game’s playing throughout our sphere of governance.”
