Lautoka golf partnership

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, August 12, 2014

FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand is optimistic that the partnership between Lautokka Golf Club and FNU would benefit the students and sport in a whole.

He said the partnership had picked up momentum with the increase in the number of students and staff taking up golf where free golfing lessons were organised by club members

"Such is the interest shown by a number of new golfers already playing in the main competition," said Chand.

"Our focus is to promote sports not for competitive purpose only but at the same time to release work and study pressure.

"Our vision is to see that LGC to be one of the most fantastic sea view and best golfing destinations in Fiji and the South Pacific.

"I am sure stage by stage the clubs will have its own restaurants and bar where families can also use for social gathering."

Chand said the club had a rich history prompting FNU to work with the club in developing the property.

"It is pleasing to see that LGC has a proud history dating back to colonial sugar days in 1931 when the first official tournament was staged."
