Ryder Cup Aid for Hungary’s Junior Golfers1 min read


Posted on: 12th Jun 2012

kid 1Junior golfers in Hungary, where structured and co-ordinated efforts are in progress to grow a golfing culture from grass roots, alongside other Eastern European countries, are benefiting from the use of  30 sets of SNAG equipment,  funded by The  Ryder Cup European  Development Trust (RCEDT).

Equipped with the cleverly-designed and produced SNAG starter sets, members of the Hungarian Golf Federation’s (HGF) junior programme are progressing their early development in the sport backed by coaching from PGA professionals.

The SNAG equipment is also supporting widespreadkid 2 planning to take golf into more and more schools with the long-term objective of becoming part of a national sporting curriculum.

Along with The Ryder Cup support, Hungary’s impressive development programme has also been significantly helped by the embracing of golf into the Olympics for Brazil 2016, a status that prompts a level of state aid not previously available to the sport.

As part of the HGF’s comprehensive plans to promote golf as a popular national sport and to develop the elite players, they have PGA professional and Hungarian golfing pioneer and administrator, Damian MacPherson, as national coach.

“The support of Ryder Cup means a lot to us,” said the President of the Hungarian Golf Federation, András Sugár. “We have had the intention to launch and develop a nationwide School Golf Program for a long time and a lot of effort is invested into this project.

“We are confident that with the help of the 30 SNAG sets and in cooperation with the enthusiastic clubs many young children will have the opportunity to play golf and the most talented players may be our future hopes for the Olympic Games one day.”
