Internship Programme Helps Next Generation Golfers Stay Focussed

The ongoing pandemic has brought nearly all sports activities to a halt, with the danger that those who had been planning a career in sport could start to lose interest and drift away. To help offset this danger the Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA) has established an internship programme.

Two young squad members, Mimi Ho and Terrence Ng, are the first beneficiaries of the programme, designed to give them a deeper understanding of the golf sector.

“The internship programme aims to provide opportunities for golfers planning a career in golf to learn about operations of sport associations and athlete management systems,” said HKGA Chief Executive Officer Danny Lai. “We hope the experience of interning at HKGA would help them plan their career, and at the same time nurture future professional sports managers for the sustainable development of the golf sector. We also hope to provide relief to golfers whose professional careers have been disrupted by pandemic. When the pilot scheme has been completed, we will conduct a review and continue to explore new ways to support young golf lovers.”

With impressive tournament results under their belt, Mimi and Terrence had been core members of the Hong Kong Squad Team. Both of them appreciate the opportunities to leverage what they learned at university to support junior golfers.
