MGA receive RM2mil to develop homegrown champions

THE government will provide a grant of RM2 million to the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) to help produce homegrown golf champions.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said, under the leadership of their new president, Tan Sri Mohd Anwar Mohd Nor, it is hoped the association would continue their efforts to enhance the standard of golf in the country.

“To that effect, a contribution of RM2 million will be provided to develop the game at grassroots level.

“With that, hopefully more Malaysian players will be able to rise to a higher level,” said Najib at the prize giving ceremony of the Maybank Malaysian Open Golf Championship at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, Bukit Kiara, yesterday. — Bernama
