YGP Student

I’m really grateful to the YGP Programme in supporting and development of my golf game when I was a teenager.  At an age where there are many distractions, structure and the rigor of theprogramme taught me the importance of discipline and the importance of showing up and committing to the process of getting better, a soft skillthat has served me well into university and my career after in business development and now in the world of philanthropy. YGP gave us access to great golf courses and practice facilities which greatly supported my game. Looking back some of closest friends to this day were friends I met, played and practiced together at YGP.

Golf has played a big part of my life in my early years, and the community and the transferable skills sets from playing the game of golf continue to impact my life today for the better. Thank you YGP!”

The programme provided a beneficial platform for myself and others alike to build our character, such as mental resilience, confidence and patience to name a few. I strongly believe they were beneficial not only for an aspiring golfer, but also to equip one with useful skills which I found to be handy in future endeavours. 

These skills did help me later in my life, namely during my National Service when I had soldiers under my charge. I was thankful to have these skills at my disposal, to ensure operations were carried out smoothly and successfully, and that those under my charge were working harmoniously together. Personally, that made my entire NS experience much more meaningful knowing that I could effectively apply these skills to overcome any  challenges, which has also allowed me to make many friends along the way.  

Thereafter, I studied abroad at the University of Nottingham and found myself applying these skills again when representing the University of Nottingham Golf Team to compete against players from England, Wales, Scotland, and South Africa. On a competitive stage, they were definitely skilful in many aspects of their game, however the coaching and regular CYGP tournaments gave me a competitive edge over my opponents and made me successful in numerous occasions. Our university team placed 2nd after the end of the 22/23 season, and I believe that my contributions to the team were made possible owing to the strong programme put forth by the CYGP and the stellar coaches which I was lucky enough to be taught under. 

Golf will always be a part of my life but a big shoutout to the CYGP for their unwavering support they have given me during my time in the programme and also to provide that same opportunity to others as well. There’s much more to learn than the game itself, but also the values and friendships gained along the way. I would like to wish the CYGP and their team continuous success now and in the future.
