Making Golf More Accessible to Youths



TPC Kuala Lumpur’s Annual Junior Golf Pass available now at only RM6,888

Kuala Lumpur, 19 January 2018 – Driven by the commitment to spur golf interest among youths, TPC Kuala Lumpur recently introduced the Junior Golf Pass (JGP) which is an annual passport for golfers between 12 and 20 years. 

The JGP allows 360 days access to TPC Kuala Lumpur’s multi award-winning golf course, top notch clubhouse facilities plus a host of amazing privileges; minus the monthly subscription fees.

“The JGP is positioned as the perfect gift for your child who is into golf and to provide them with the opportunity to experience the exclusivity of a golf and country club lifestyle. Parents can also enjoy the same privileges through the JGP,” said Steven Thielke, Chief Executive Officer of TPC Kuala Lumpur.

“Golf is a wonderful game that helps to cultivate good qualities namely integrity, honesty, patience, discipline and tolerance; plus encourage youths to socialize within the circle of friends who share a common interest in a healthy and positive environment,” Thielke added.

The JGP is the fourth initiative by TPC Kuala Lumpur that specifically targets youths; following the Rising Star Juniors Programme which is funded by Yayasan Sime Darby specifically for under-privileged youths, the Sime Darby LPGA Golf Development Programme and Junior Golf Tournament.

Taking a step further, the club has been appointing young and dynamic TPC Kuala Lumpur Ambassadors as role models. The Ambassadors represent the success one can achieve with the right support and platform to pursue golf. A shining example is TPC Kuala Lumpur’s Pro Ambassador Gavin Green; who is the first Malaysian to win the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit.

Newly added to our list of Ambassadors are Natasha Oon who is Champion of the 2017 Sime Darby LPGA National Qualifier, Winnie Ng Yu Xuan winner of the Amateur Category in the 2017 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia and Yip Sean Yi, the winner of TPC Kuala Lumpur Club Championship 2017 Ladies Category.

“Our Ambassadors are trail-blazing in their golf career and we at TPC Kuala Lumpur are proud to provide access and opportunity for them to hone their skills with world class facilities and services. We hope our initiatives will encourage other clubs and the overall golf industry to also develop more junior golf programmes in time to come. We also hope more senior golfers will lend support to develop golf interest among younger golfers via friendly matches or just playing golf for fun. The majority of golfers are over the age of 50. If nothing is done to develop the interest in golf among youths, golf and the club industry may face some serious sustainability challenges,” Thielke concluded.

TPC Kuala Lumpur is offering the annual Junior Golf Pass at an introductory price of RM 6,888 until 31 March 2018. The normal price would be RM 7,500. To discover more about JGP, call our Business Relationship Managers Ms Imelda at 012 858 8602 or Mr Hisham at 013 360 6614 today.
