THE Lautoka Golf Club is ready to host the Prophet Mohammed's Birthday Western Open Golf Championship on Monday.
Club chairman of trustees, Raymond Singh said they had repaired damage to the Golf Links course that were sustained during Tropical Cyclone Evan last year.
He said the course had been fully mowed and all set to host the Design Engineering Ltd-sponsored event.
"Despite the damage to the golf club, we will be up and running to host the event with top prizes at stake in the overall, A, B, C and Juniors category," Singh said.
"The 18 holes stroke event will be the first event of the year and has already attracted national reps Anuresh Chandra and Olaf Allen Jr together with the newly-crowned juniors champion Baarroon Hussein and a host of champion golfers," he said. Singh also applauded the generous sponsorship for the event that will be hosted on a special day.
Design Engineering director Abdul Khaiyum said the day marked a special celebration on the national calendar and golf lovers could enjoy it the way they do best.
"My company has whole heartedly supported this event and I am sure this tournament will also generate a lot of interest among the upcoming junior golfers," Khaiyum said.
"This is also an auspicious occasion to celebrate Prophet Mohammed's birthday and I am sure all the participants will vie for top honours with lucrative prizes up for grabs," he said.
Tee-off will be between 9am to 10am.
