HSBC’s golf grassroots programmes have encouraged thousands of children to play the game

HSBC is offering children and their families a chance to try an hour of golf for free at 300 courses across England, Scotland and Wales this July.

There are also opportunities for young people to try the sport – and get a free coaching session – in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UAE.

The bank is encouraging young people to experience the game as the world’s elite players prepare for the start of the 145th Open Championship. HSBC is a patron of the tournament, which takes place this year at Royal Troon golf course, Scotland on 14–17 July.

Supporting grassroots programmes has been an important part of the bank’s involvement in golf since it began sponsoring the game more than 10 years ago. Giles Morgan, Global Head of Sponsorship and Events, HSBC, said: “We describe golf as ‘Anyone’s Game’ because it is our fundamental belief that golf should be open to anyone. This is the embodiment of that commitment, giving thousands of people an opportunity to experience the game for the first time.”
