The Captain of the host club, Damang Golf Club, Mr Pius Ayeh Appiah said his club is ready to host this year’s edition of the Q-School and will be looking forward to see some good display from the ‘wannabes’.

He said his club has been supporting the PGA of Ghana by hosting the annual PGA Championship and also the Q-School.

Qualification, according to the PGA of Ghana will be limited to the first five in playing competency, where applicants will play 54 holes, 36 on Friday and 18 on Saturday. A written test will be taken before the 18 holes on Saturday.

According to the PGA of Ghana, they currently have over 70 members, though many have seen their better days and need more young members.

As a result of this, the Association has put together a standard qualifying process called the Q-School. The two-day event is the climax of this Apprenticeship period and candidates are assessed based on the syllabus.

At the end of the assessment, the successful qualifiers would join the ranks of the Professional Golfers of Ghana.

The previous edition saw Kwame Ligbidi, Owusu Bonsu, Kronzu Kwame, Joseph Klah, and Amponsah Prince Quaning going through a series of tests to join the Association.
