Undaunted by the long absence (4 months!) from the Golf Course due to incessant rains and an almost impassable road, Golfers turned out with great enthusiasm for the massive Massy United 4th Annual golf tournament Saturday.
The top stream was a refreshing net range of 73 – 76, with some ten golfers in the range, comprising F. Haniff, I. Khan, C. Adams – 73; Pur Persaud, P. London – 74; I. Gouveia, M. Gayadin – 75: and A. Hussain, P. Prashad and H. Tiwari – 76. Other golfers submitted scores ranged up to net 85. While the scores are generally much better for all the golfers, the long competitive absence did not deter keen competitive scores as demonstrated by the top ten.
Club Captain Chatterpaul Deo was high in his praise for the effort of the golfers to come out and play and produce such a close range at the top.
Winners of the day’s tournament were 1st – Fazil Haniff 73/87; 2nd – Imran Khan 73/80; 3rd – Carlos Adams 73/99. Best Gross – Imran Khan; Nearest to the Pin (3 feet) – Ian Gouviea; and Most Honest Golfer – Jorge Medina. (Any tie in golf – as in the case of 3 scores at 73 – is initially settled by the golfer with the better ‘back nine’ scores receiving the better place. The tournament was played under the open medal play system.)
Massy United Insurance, of Lot 126F Carmichael Street, Georgetown,(tel:592-226-7444) had since April 30 expected its tournament to be run off, but this did not take place until now, September 3.
The rains have eased and remedial work on the Club’s access road through collaboration between Macorp, Mr. Mohan Jacob – Director for Design & Construction with American based construction company EMR Inc., – and the Club’s executives, has made the road very usable.
Massy United Insurance, (a Barbados based Company,) offers a wide range of general insurance products for businesses throughout 14 territories in the Caribbean. Their A-ExcellentA M Best (of the USA) financial stability rating gives clients the assurance that they are financially stable and well able to manage various risks and effectively settle claims when the need arises.
Club President Oncar Ramroop, in expressing gratitude on behalf of the Club, gave members detailed information of the financial stability of Massy United, and of the excellent coverage that Massy United Insurance has given the Lusignan Golf Club.
Mr. Vibert Austin, Claims Officer, representing Mr. Lindel Harlequin and Massy United, expressed his appreciation for the detailed information about Massy United presented by Club President Oncar Ramroop and for the opportunity for Massy United to be involved. He reiterated Massy’s perspective that Insurance should cause the client to be happy that they were involved with them. He also repeated Mr Harlequin’s commitment that Massy’s involvement with the Lusignan Golf Club is annual and will only be bigger and better.
In closing, Club President, Ramroop thanked Mr Jorge Medina and Macorp for the significant contribution made to the improvement of the road. Mr Medina expressed that Macorp has been very happy to assist not only the Golf Club but also the Lusignan community in the improvement to the road.
