Tonga’s Golf Club provide reasons for refuting government decision

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 01/02/2017

There were two reasons behind Tonga’s Golf Club decision to refute Government’s move to renovate the current golf course at ‘Atele.

Dr. Ngongo Kioa – Tonga’s Club Captain says first if the renovation took place, they will have no alternative course for training – because this not about having a golf course but for Tonga’s golfers to win a medal.

He adds if the Government goes ahead with the construction – the lease will be increased after the sports and they cannot afford to pay this because there are only a few of them.

However, he says construction of the golf course in Popua will ensure that Tonga meets the International standards required for a golf course for the 2019 Games.
