A Chinese university aiming to produce "socially elite" graduates plans to make golf compulsory for students, state media reported.

Students majoring in management, law, economics and software engineering at Xiamen University in Fujian province would be required to take golf "to achieve their elite ambitions," the China Daily newspaper said.

"Golf ... will teach students communication skills and benefit their future careers," the paper quoted university President Zhu Chongshi as saying.
