THE Fiji Golf Club ladies are hoping for a better season following a rainy experience during their weekly Summer Cup competition last year.
Lady captain Margie Browne said they would start with their annual Flour Mills of Fiji-sponsored competition from January 22 which would run until March 12.
Browne said the rain did not help the organisers last year as they witnessed a low turnout in their tournament every Tuesdays.
"But we would like to thank Flour Mills of Fiji for their generous sponsorship. Without generous sponsors like them we probably would lose more players. And we have to keep the game going for our young and budding golfers," she said.
Browne said the Summer Cup competition was a pre-season 9-hole stableford competition ran over eight weeks.
"It is a lead-up to the competition proper. Points are awarded each week for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places," she added.
"At the end of the eight weeks the points are tallied up to determine the overall winners.
"We have prizegiving at the end of the eight weeks and prizes are awarded for first, second and third overall winners."
Browne said the Summer Cup was a very competitive event with no particular golfer holding on to the lead throughout the competition.
"In last year's competition we had different winners each week so we could not determine who would win at the end of the eight weeks," she said.
"It could have been anyone's game. It was not until the second last week that we could see who the overall winner and runner-up would be."
