Port Moresby, 2nd May, 2017 | Bank South Pacific (BSP) has proudly sponsored the BSP Junior Golf Pro-Am since it started in 2013.
In the lead up to the 2017 SP Brewery PNG Golf Open, several budding golfers will have the privilege to play in the 2017 BSP Golf Junior Pro-Am alongside six (6) PGA Golf Professionals.
The event, which tees off at the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club today (Tuesday 2nd May, 2017) will provide the opportunity for 12 young golfers to have a fun day on the golf course, whilst at the same time gain knowledge from visiting professional golfers.
This year, BSP supported the Junior Pro-Am with a corporate sponsorship of K10,000 in cash and plus merchandise for each junior participant towards staging the event.
According to President of Port Moresby Golf Club, Ken Dunn, the BSP Golf Junior Pro-Am event is aimed at inspiring and enhancing the level of play for junior golfers and thanked BSP for its generous sponsorship.
“The Port Moresby Golf Club is dedicated to the development of Junior Golf in Papua New Guinea and as at previous PNG Opens, our juniors will have the opportunity to partner with visiting professional golfers,” Mr Dunn said.
“It is the outstanding corporate sponsorship from PNG’s business community that has contributed to the national event now being elevated to tier 2 status, thus giving PNG further prominence on the world stage: something we should be immensely proud of.” added Dunn .
BSP sees this sponsorship as an important part in developing and nurturing future golfers and urged the young players to learn as much as possible from the golfing professionals.
BSP Junior Golf Pro-Am is in its fifth successive year running and continues to gain popularity.
The aim of the event is to inspire young golfers to take up the sport long term and allow them to see golf skills, etiquette and sportsmanship playing alongside a Pro Golfer and their junior golf colleagues.
