South African project aimed at growing game

A new project designed to promote golf among young people has been launched in South Africa.

“Project Golf 2014,” an initiative inspired by the Women's World Cup of Golf, seeks to produce 2,014 golfers – including many girls from disadvantaged backgrounds -- by the year 2014.

The drive is part of a larger effort by the Professional Golf Association of South Africa and the South African Golf Development Board to create one million new golfers in the country over a 21-year period.

Project Golf 2014 programs currently are in operation at three sites, including the most recent location at Kingswood Golf Club in George.
