Golf event deferred

HEAVY rain yesterday caused the postponement of the much anticipated Uprising Beach Resort-sponsored The Pearl Two Person Ambrose event in Pacific Harbour.

With top golfers at the Pearl South Pacific Golf Club gear up to rub shoulders with some of Suva's top golfers in the event, the uncontrollable Mother Nature again disrupted the mouth-watering clash.

Times Sport earlier highlighted the anticipation of the golf club manager Graeme Bell who was looking forward to the event.

"Due to the weather and golf course conditions, the sponsors and I have decided that tomorrow's (today) event, The Pearl Two Person Ambrose is postponed until further notice," he stated in an email.

"I will advise when dates are set. Sorry for any inconvenience caused."

Bell mentioned to this newspaper the golf course was in top condition during the week.

He said the Suva golfers and Fiji reps such as Olaf Allen Jr had enjoyed playing golf at the upgraded course.

Allen Jr has even won a number of events, held in Pacific Harbour. Bell said when the Two Person-Ambrose event tees off, he expected stiff competition from top players such as Allen-Jr, Paul Gil, David Voss and Peter Crawford and other golfers.
