THE newly formed Nadroga Golf Association will host a team Ambrose event at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course this Saturday.
A total of 24 teams will participate in the tournament. The Nadroga Golf Association was formed last month to develop the sport in the province. The association’s event manager Avinesh Datt said Natadola would be the home base for their tournaments. Datt said attractive prizes would be at stake.
“Teams from Rakiraki, Ba, Lautoka, Nadi, Denarau, Pacific Harbour and Suva would be participating,” he said. “There will be $2500 worth of prizes for the top three finishers. They will also receive trophies. “This is the first tournament to be hosted by the association. This is just the start. We have big sponsors on board. Coastal Rental’s managing director Biren Kumar is the president of the association.
“Nadroga is a powerhouse in rugby. We aim to develop some good golfers as well. “A development program will be launched soon to support the junior golfers.” Saturday’s tournament is sponsored by Coastal Rental, Sigatoka Motor Spares, Sigatoka Electric, Gecko Trucking, Mali Pest Control and Kanta Construction.
