The golf prowess of a 12-year-old from Uganda and 15-year-old from England have made an emphatic impact on the Kids Golf Podcast.
The Kids Golf Podcast is a platform aimed at and produced by children, giving junior golfers the opportunity to share their golf journeys and inspirations.
In a special episode of the Kids Golf Podcast, 12-year-old golfer Christian Muhimbo from Uganda meets 15-year-old host, Ryka Verma.
A student at St.Dominic’s Grammar School in Brewood, Ryka is also the Junior Captain at Staffordshire Golf Club and member of the 3 Hammers Golf Academy in Wolverhampton. Ryka started her golf journey in 2017 and currently has a handicap of 23. Despite her relatively short time in the sport, Ryka brings a special passion not only for individual success but also for instilling the spirit of golf into other young golfers in her community and beyond.
Ryka has taken on the role as a Young Ambassador at England Golf – a platform that aims to nurture and promote young talent in golf. She is also a dedicated volunteer at the Golf Foundation, where she works tirelessly to introduce and develop golf programmes in various communities. Through her involvement, Ryka aims to spread the joy and benefits of golf to young individuals who may not have had the opportunity to engage with the sport before.
With her contagious enthusiasm and drive, she encourages her peers to embark on their own golfing journeys, helping them discover the many life lessons and values that the sport instils. Ryka believes that golf transcends age, gender, and background, and has the power to bring communities together through shared experiences on the course.
