VietNamNet Bridge – The Viet Nam Golf Association (VGA) is developing a programme to identify talented young golfers in schools across the country.
The VGA has been seeking a long term sponsorship deal to get the project off the ground from next year.
"The association plans to introduce golf into the school curriculum from next year, but we have to find a strong enough sponsor to get it started," said the VGA's general secretary Nguyen Ngoc Chu.
"Golf will made its debut at junior and senior secondary schools rather than primary schools. Students in the age groups of 11-13 and 14-15 will practise golf in school with further training on the golf course," Chu said.
Chu said he hoped the project would be a positive step and the association would try its best to reach a sponsorship deal soon.
"It's the best way to build the sustainable development of a sport. We can find a lot of fresh talent by introducing them to golf in school time," the general secretary said.
