Golf Association, Texila American University form partnership
Texila American University (TAU) recently signed a partnership agreement with the Guyana Golf Association (Golf) and Nexgen Golf Academy which will offer its alumni, current and new students full access to its facilities when classes resume this semester.
TAU spokesperson, Jesvin Pradeep, in a press release stated: “Our students must be given the best opportunities in all areas including non-academic activities. We are extremely happy with the program that Nexgen Golf Academy is offering since Golf is a sport that enhances mental acuity and focus, along with stress relief, something that students and doctors need. It also offers great business networking opportunities.”
President of the GGA Aleem Hussain commented: “Golf has seen an increase in interest by many current medical professionals and we look forward to developing a structured program for higher education students.”
The partnership will allow students and alumni to receive preferential rates at all Nexgen Golf facilities and participate in inter-collegiate tournaments.
NGA Head Coach Dr. Joaan Deo added “as a young professional woman golfer, I am glad to see the sport reach the highest levels of the education system and I look forward to working with TAU to help add to the skills of their students.”
Over the past few weeks, the Guyana Golf Association has donated millions of dollars in equipment and balls to schools in Regions Three, Six, and Ten, and held two Junior Golf Camps.
They will soon commence training for an additional 50 Physical Education teachers in Regions Two, Four and Five in its efforts to expand the game with the Minister of Education Allied Arts Unit.
