Ba golf battle
28 July, 2017, 12:00 am
XAVIER College teacher Asish Chand and Rohit Chandra will battle for top honours during the Shop Fittings Fiji Ltd-sponsored 18 holes stoke event at the Fiji Sugar Corporation Rarawai course in Ba on Sunday.
The duo are part of the national training squad preparing for the Nomura Cup and Pacific Mini Games at the end of the year. They are the seeded players in the A Grade.
Extensive work has been carried out to get the course up to par as the Ba Golf Club prepares to host the annual Ba Open Championship. The club’s treasurer Rajeshwar Prasad said the focus was on staging the weekly competitions in the lead-up to the Ba Open.
Prasad said Manish Patel and Joyti Lal were the favourites in the B Grade.
“We expect a large number of entries,” he said.
“Because of the recent dry spell, the greens are being watered daily. The pin placements have been altered to make the competition challenging. The weekly competitions will give our members more game time in their buildup to the Ba Open.”
