THE Lautoka Golf Club is all geared up to host its first event of 2018.
This will be the staging of the popular two-men 18 holes open Ambrose stroke event on Saturday.
Sponsored by Zee Clean Chemicals, the tournament is open to other Golf Fiji affiliated club members to compete for the main prizes.
Club official Raymond Singh said the recent heavy rain in the West had made the course unplayable and now the greens and fairways had been fully maintained to allow competition to tee-off on Saturday.
“Lautoka Golf Club is grateful to our sponsor, Anil Chand of ZEE Chemicals. He sponsors the Ambrose event with a host of excellent prizes,” Singh said.
“Likewise, James Leger of Top Flite Bar & Restaurant for providing the workforce to get the course in top order in readiness to kick start the 2018 season on Saturday.”
Singh said the usual front runners to take out top honours include the teams belonging to Suren Pillay and Gaffar Ali, Prem Chand and Bill Gardiner, James Leger and Sanjay Gopal, Pritam Singh and Daven Mudaliar, Roneel Prakash and Chong Lee, Amitesh Chandra and Munesh Prasad, Raymond Singh and Senitiki Cakau, Steven Leger and Alex Qiokata, Asish Kumar and Sunia Radovu, and Ritesh Chandra/ and Pranil Prasad.
Tee-off will be from 12.30pm – 1.15pm and entry fee is $15. Golfers interested to play could contact Gaffar Ali on 9789235.
