TP+ Wellington Samoa Golf Academy

Golf isn't a sport you see many Pacific People playing, but the Wellington Samoa Golf Academy wants to change that. The Academy is making it easier for young Pacific People to play golf by introducing the sport to them at a young age. And the Academy is already showing success with some students representing NZ at an international level.
