It was Brian Hackett’s delight that he did his late friend Prabudial Ramdial proud when scores indicated that he was in the lead for the tournament Saturday afternoon, until the last scores came in and Mahesh Shivraj, only known for bringing a second in the Courts tournament of Saturday October 24, 2015, emerged with a fantastic net that made him the undisputed winner!
In fact, in that Courts tournament, Hackett as well as Maurice Solomon and Bholawram Deo had tied for 4th, so that Shivraj seems bent on challenging the experience and skills of these seasoned players.
Winners of the day’s competition were 1st Mahesh Shivraj net 59, gross 86; 2nd Brian Hackett 64/86; 3rd Club vice-President Patrick Prashad 68/77. Patrick Prashad also won the Best Gross with 77, while Nearest to The Pin was won by Robert Hanoman, scoring some 3 feet short of a hole-in-one.
On his part, Shivraj, who has been playing golf at Lusignan for less than a year now, said, “I played a fairly good game, most of my balls were on the fairway all the time, just a few went off. In addition my chipping was excellent, the good chipping meant that distance to putt was small so I finished each hole well.”
Past President Brian Hackett, in expressing gratitude on behalf of Vish Trading Inc. of Area D, Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara, indicated that, “Vish is delighted to continue annual sponsorship of a golf tournament in honour and memory of the late Prabudial Ramdial.” “In addition to the day’s tournament sponsorship, an after-play round of drinks for the golfers was in effect from Vish.Vish Trading Inc. has been in the Machinery supply business for many years, and recently has expanded to include quarrying,”he added.
One must note that the golf course is in tremendously good shape, kudos to President Oncar Ramroop and especially Grounds Superintendent Mike Gayadin, who seems to make the herculean task of keeping the grounds in good shape such a light thing.
