NEWLY elected Nadi Airport Golf Club president Munesh Prasad is keen to take the sport to greater heights.

Prasad was part of the group that was elected unopposed during the annual general meeting at the club house on Sunday.

At the age of 28 years, he is the youngest president of the club.

The Jack's of Fiji information technology manager said they would draw up major plans to turn the club's financial status around after recording a deficit of more than $10,000 last year.

Prasad said maintenance work on the course would be carried out to prevent flooding.

"Lucrative tournaments will be held every weekend," he said.

"We anticipate the membership to grow. The junior development programs will be introduced. We will also target the women golfers and cater for them in our weekly competition."

Foodhall Supermarket director Pranith Chand and Plantation Island Resort golf course designer Ananda Madhwan are the two vice presidents.

Metalworks managing director Sailesh Singh takes up the captaincy, Pundit Vishnu Deo schoolteacher Nilesh Chand is the secretary, former national rep Zoheer Ahmad is the treasurer, Mahesh Prasad is the greens director, national rep Roneel Prakash is the handicapper while Praneel Prasad, Kavit Karan and Ritesh Chandra are the committee members.

The financial report was passed after a lengthy debate.
