The ‘F’ Word

China’s very first kids-oriented, nine-hole, par-three pitch-and-putt courses will open shortly in the capital city of Beijing. It is designed specifically for young people to learn golf and have FUN getting into the game. is always pleased to report such initiatives, especially when we are told that ‘Aoyuan Mini Strokes’ is to be the forerunner for future public access golf in other cities within China.

Realising that having FUN is vital if the sport is to attract new players has been the basis of the work of  The Golf Foundation for many years. If you want to know more take a look at the Foundation’s website.

Have a FUN Weekend.
