We are constantly working to increase the number of golfers in Ukraine: we actively support juniors, we have created a Children’s and Youth Golf Sports School. We understand what interesting outdoor sport it is and we want at least a thousand golfers to join the game by the end of the year, and up to 10,000 people will play golf in 3-5 years,” said Vitaliy Khomutynnik, President of the Ukrainian Golf Federation, congratulating the winners.
