Macorp Cat – the sole authorised Caterpillar dealer in Guyana, following in its usual wake of the Guyana Open, went much bigger this year in its support of golfing in Guyana, with its own pre-tournament media promotion as well as its contribution to the Lusignan Golf Club by means of its 8th year of sponsorship of the exciting Macorp Classic Tournament which teed off at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday 8th November.
Some 61 enthusiastic golfers – the largest number in a one day Tournament at Lusignan – were involved in the day’s tournament, but at the end of the day it was Carlos Adams and Christine Sukhram whose Best Nets carried off the first prizes in the Male and Female categories respectively.
Played under the straight open Medal Play system, the first six Best Nets for the Males were won by Carlos Adams 26/62, Parmanand Persaud 21/65, Richard Haniff 21/65, Bridgelall Harry 16/66, Munaf Arjune 8/66, and Patanjalee ‘Pur’ Persaud 22/67, being 1st to 6th respectively. In the Female category Christine Sukhram 9/69 brought home the single female Best Net trophy. Nearest to The Pin was won by Maurice Solomon, while Avinda Kishore was rewarded for his overall Best Gross of 74.
Macorp was well represented in the day’s activity, fielding some 6 players, while a fantastic, commendable and exemplary administrative representation was recorded. Inclusive of General Manager Jorge Medina who participated in the Tournament and returned a good net score of 80, Macorp fielded its Finance, Major Projects, Marketing, Product Support, Sales, and Service Managers in the persons of Ms Rampersaud, Mr Amaris, Mr Pinol, Mr Escaraga, Mr Bentick and Mr Reyes respectively, along with the Marketing Assistant, Damien Lewis and other staff who participated in the game.
Macorp’s usual raffle after the prize giving ceremony was received with its normal thrill and excitement, as golfers received prizes by random draw of their cards. Prizes were won by Alfred Mentore, Roberto Crisi, Azad Shaw, Sam Harry, Roy Cummings, Mike Mangal, Lakram Ramsundar, Jeetendra ‘Naro’ Dhanpat, Sunil Loutan, and Kevin Boodram.
General Manager was loud and clear in his company’s support not only for golfing but for Guyana. In a brief speech he declared, “We are very proud to promote golfing in Guyana and to be involved in promoting Guyana in the international business community. When I started 8 years ago with the Macorp sponsored Tournament the participation was about 20 golfers, it is encouraging that today there were over 60 golfers. We consider all these golfers our family and are proud to be involved in helping to make Guyana bigger and better. Golfing is part of the life of the Guyana business community. I do hope the Government and the Private sector will promote more golfing support in Guyana. We are very happy that there are international players who have come to participate in this tournament and I am hoping that in the future there can be international sponsorship of a tournament here in Guyana.”
Club President David Mohamad expressed his gratitude. “I wish to thank Macorp and Managing Director, Jorge Medina, for promoting this Tournament, – one of our premier tournaments. I am also grateful for the many family and friends who came out. Thanks too to the golfers who travelled from overseas to be part of this annual Macorp Classic Tournament, as well as to all the local golfers who participated.”
