This Sunday, in the San Miguel de Colina Municipal Park, the children’s program “Súmate al Golf” ended, a campaign organized by the Chilean Golf Federation in order to expand the sport in the community.

The day began at 11:00 am, when the little ones had their fourth and last introductory golf class. After that, came the award ceremony. The two most outstanding students received a scholarship at the academy of Felipe Aguilar, one of the most important golfers in the history of Chile.

Carlos Morales, executive director of Colina Deportes, led the closing ceremony and celebrated the success of the program. “For us it has always been important that we do sports with the best and that is why today we have the Golf Federation and Felipe Aguilar here. I thank the children for their assistance and, obviously, their parents. The sport practiced in support of the family is always better and the children feel happier”, he pointed out after the event.

Edgardo Bello, general manager of the Chilean Golf Federation, also valued the initiative. “I thank Colina for allowing us to bring this beautiful sport closer to the community. It is an opportunity for children to practice something fun and healthy, ”he said.

Felipe Aguilar also had words about the end. “I thank the parents and children, who are the stars. Thanks to Colina and the Federation. We want to transmit a new sport, fresh ideas, discipline and values”, closed the outstanding golfer.

Sofía Hernández and Martín Morales, both nine years old, were the two award-winning children. “We want to be like Joaquín Niemann and Mito Pereira”, they pointed out after receiving the award. The scholarship consists of classes for three months at the Aguilar Academy. “Súmate al Golf” is a program of the Chilean Golf Federation for boys and girls from municipal schools and that is intended to be replicated in all the districts of Santiago.
