THE Fiji Golf Club will be hosting its 2014 qualifying rounds event this weekend at the Vatuwaqa golf course.

Sponsored by Rooster Poultry, the two-day tournament starting tomorrow is expected to have more than 100 participants.

Club manager Nigel Goundan said the in-form defending club champion and the Fiji elite squad member Mohammed Rizwan would face a tough challenge while defending his title.

"Top Fiji amateur Olaf Allen Jr, elite squad member VK Singh, Rohit Chandra, Ravinesh Goundan, David Oakley and a promising golfer, the Director of Sports William Naisara are threats for the top honours," Nigel said.

In B-grade competition, defending champion Water Authority of Fiji CEO Opetaia Ravai is leading the chase.

He is expected to face tough competition from Surrendra Battan Singh, Mohit Prasad, Ramesh Goundan, Vijay Madhavan and Vidhya Lakhan.

"In C grade, Govind Sami will feel the heat from Minister of Youth & Sports Villiame Naupoto, Falo Keil, Frank Chan and Ravindar Lal," Nigel said.

"This is the first year Rooster Poultry is sponsoring the event and we have got some good plans to make this event a bigger and better one from past years."

Meanwhile, Dennis Fong scooped the Motibhai Group and Company-sponsored stableford event last week on Saturday.

Fong managed 42 stableford points to win the A-grade title while Mohit Prasad won the B-grade on 42 points as well.

Samisoni Kakaivalu took home the C-grade title on 41 points.

The ladies division one was won by Margaret Browne while Sarita Goundan won the division two prize.

The professional grade prize went to Tomasi Tuivuna.

The nearest-to-the-pin prizes were won by David Oakley and Conway Begg on the fifth and sixteenth holes, respectively.
