SPONSOR Srixon Cleveland has continued their support to the National Golf Association of Fiji by giving $70,000 worth of equipment and accessories for the elite squad members.

The top four elite players will receive custom-made clubs.

Association secretary Amitesh Chandra said the items would be distributed to the top men and women players.

He said the rising stars in the junior category would also be entitled to the equipment.

"Srixon Cleveland's sponsorship consist of four sets of club, golf bag stands, tour bags, travel bags, cart bags, balls, caps, gloves and umbrellas all worth over $70,000 in total," Chandra said.

"All players will have to sign contracts to use these items and promote Srixon Cleveland every time they play.

"The top 10 elite squad members get fully outfitted with these items and must play with these only. So far the sponsors have given more than 12 golf sets in the last four years.

"We are very grateful to Srixon Cleveland for their support."
