Coronavirus has brought goodies for Knya junior golfers through the Junior Golf Foundation (JGF).
Today, the JGF president Larry Ngala announced that the annual fee has been reduced from kshs 1,000 to kshs 120 for the annual membership fee.
“This will enable juniors play at any golf course and participate in Junior Golf Foundation-organised events,” said Ngala.
“Junior tournaments have not been played and we may not have sufficient time to reschedule all the events bearing in mind that many parents may not be willing or able to bring their children to tournaments under the prevailing conditions,” said Ngala.
Ngala said that after consideration, the foundation has decided that all junior membership cards that were to expire this year have been pushed to the year 2021
However, Ngala advised junior golfers to continue practising and sharpening their skills when they get a chance while keeping safe and adhering to guidelines from the Ministry of Health, Kenya Golf Union (KGU) and the respective clubs.
JGF whose mandate is to search, nurture and develop golf talents from children aged five to 21, has since from its establishment in 1995 provided an opportunity for junior golfers to access all courses affiliated to the KGU at reduced green fees.
