I will develop golf in Africa – Mick Aggrey says after winning election

President of Ghana Golf Association (GAA) Mick Aggrey has been elected as the new Secretary General of the African Golf Confederation (AGC)

Mr. Aggrey will play CEO role by overseeing the day-to-day activities of all the 42 golfing affiliates and also help in development of the sport in Africa.

“I have been elected as the secretary general for African Golf Confederation for the next four years, we cover the whole of African’s 42 golfing nations and I’m the new secretary general. My job is to coordinate all the activities of 42 affiliated nations,” he said.

Speaking to Nana Prempeh of Power Sports Sports,  Mr. Aggrey said he wants to change the narrative of golf in Africa.

“The governing bodies in Asia and Latin America have done well by investing hugely for improvement of golf in those continents,” he said.

“I  realize that less than one percent of Africas play golf which is very low. You compare that to other developed countries and you will know that ours is very low, so it’s one key areas we want to tackle to improve numbers and change the narrative.”

Mr. Mick Aggrey who’s the current Ghana Golf Association (GGA) president will not contest for the next GGA elections.

His new achievement as AGC Secretary General means he will serve for the next four years in that top position.
