Rain stops Nadi golf

ADVERSE weather conditions caused the postponement of the opening round of the Metal Works & Joinery Limited/Islands Pacific Apparel Summer Cup competition at the Nadi Airport Golf Club course yesterday.

More than 30 golfers turned up for the event at the New Town course only to be turned away because of heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Nadi Airport Golf Club spokesperson and veteran golfer Ram Khelawan said parts of the course were flooded.

He said the competition would now start next Saturday.

"It is unfortunate that we have to delay the start of our new season by a week," he said.

"However it was good that a number of golfers turned up and this means a lot to the new executive management," Khelawan added.

The Summer Cup competition will be held for six weeks. It will serve as trials to pick the Nadi team for the annual National Clubs Championship in March.
