SHANGRI-La's Fijian Resort won the Asco Motors Saint Mary's Parish Golf Day which was held at the Natadola Bay Championship Course last Saturday.

Led by Glen Roberts and Thierry Blay, Shangri-La won the first prize with a score of 60 nett.

Outrigger on the Lagoon was second with 60.125 nett while Mali Pest Control came third with a total of 60.25 nett.

A total of 24 corporate teams participated in the tournament.

Parish Priest Reverend Father Rafaele Qalovi thanked Asco Motors for being the major sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.

"Vodafone has been the co-major sponsor for the past two years," he said.

"The fundraising tournament is targeted towards the fencing of our church and school compound for the safety of our property and more so the school children."

The tournament attracted the likes of Vikrant Chandra, Amitesh Chandra, Mohammed Faiyaz, Anuresh Chandra, James Krishna, Nilesh Chand, Raymond Singh, Eric Nand, Glen Roberts, Thierry Blay and Roy Uga.

Tournament organiser Jeffery Lin said a total of $22,000 was raised during the day.

"We were blessed with fantastic weather and the prevailing wind added to the challenge throughout the day," Lin said.

"We are grateful to all the players, some of whom travelled from Suva, Ba and Lautoka."

Kavitesh Prasad, Nilesh Chand and Kim Sungera won the nearest to the pin prizes.

Raina Kumar and Amitesh hit the longest drives.
