Cape Town, 19 May 2022: A wonderful outdoor putting area was opened at Mary Kihn School for Partially Hearing Children on Wednesday.
The putting area will allow the talented golfers within Mary Kihn’s First Swing Program to take their game further than ever as they now don’t have to travel to King David Mowbray Golf Club to practice their golf.
Central to the putting area are visuals promoting the values which players must abide by such as honesty, respect and good sportsmanship.
SADGA Chairman Enver Hassen thanked Nomads, Western Province Golf as well as Paintmaster SA and Synsport for their contribution to the First Swing Program.
“As the old saying goes ‘Many hands make light work’ and this spectacular new putting area is the product of Nomads, Western Province Golf, Paintmaster and Synsport banding together for the benefit of our First Swing Program,” said Hassen.
“Nomads have been ardent supporters of the SADGA for a number of years and this putting area is the 8th time they have had a hand in a FSP environment in the last 16 years which is nothing short of phenomenal.
“I’d like to extend a collective thank you for this significant contribution towards the development of the next generation of SADGA talent.
“A special thank you must also be reserved for Mary Kihn teacher Desiree Smit whose passion for the betterment of her pupils has been integral to the success of the FSP at Mary Kihn.
“Testament to her commitment is her recent completion of the ADLF Sampler Coaching Course that has considerably deepened her understanding of golf coaching especially as it pertains to Deaf golfers.
“I wish the golfers of Mary Kihn many happy hours on the putting green and look forward to watching them take strides towards fulfilling their tremendous potential,” concluded Hassen.
