Golfers brace for face-off

Maciu Malo
Friday, March 07, 2014

TOP Lautoka golfers will face off in this weekend's Nadi Foodhall Supermarket-sponsored Summer Cup at Lautoka Golf Link.

Leading the race for the top award is veteran golfer and Lautoka golf household name Gaffar Ali.

Ali, who scooped most of the major prizes in last year's calendar tournaments, will be at his best to again stamp his mark this season.

But he will be given a good run for his money from other top golfers such as John Krishna, Prem Chand, Mannual Ajay, Anthony John, Jeff John, Abdul Jalal and Abdul Khan.

Lautoka Golf Club vice-captain Suren Pillay said it would be interesting to witness these top golfers battling each other.

He said the Summer Cup would be contested for five consecutive weeks starting this weekend.

"After the successful staging of the pre-Summer Cup last Saturday, Lautoka golf is all set to host the first round of the cup on Saturday," said Pillay.

"It will be interesting to see top golfers battling each other for five consecutive weeks.

"At the completion of round five, the champion will be declared with excellent prizes and trophies."

Pillay said the course was fully mowed and the greens were in tip top condition with excellent scores expected to be the order of the day.
