THE Lautoka Golf Club will host three major events this weekend.

Tomorrow, the club will host the 12-stroke event sponsored by Islands Refrigeration in build-up for the club championship semi-finals which will be played on Sunday in the A, B and C grades.

On Monday, the club will host the Islands Electric-sponsored 18-holes Western Open stroke event.

Club spokesman Gaffar Ali has confirmed the deferred club championship semi-finals and finals would be completed over the weekend.

"Despite the soggy fairways over the X-mas break, the course is now fully mowed and the green in tip-top condition," he said.

"National rep and seven-time Ba Open champion Anuresh Chandra and National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra are sure starters for the Islands Electric-sponsored Western Open."

Ali said attractive prizes would be up for grabs with club favourites James Krishna, Suren Pillay, Prem Chand and John Krishna vying for the top honours.

Tee off is from 9am to 10am.

The club championship finals will be played alongside the open event.
