If you have ever thought about golf, learning, watching or playing the game, there is no time like the present. The weather has changed so golfing fans and players will have several months of spectacular tournaments and events from now until the end of 2018.
At the beginning of 2018, a new Executive Committee (Aleem Hussain, Paton George, Pandit Ravi Persaud, Aasrodeen Shaw, Bishop Guy Griffith, Mike Guyadin and Deno Bissessar) were elected to office, promising that this year would be different from all others, they boldly committed to more golf days and events than ever before.
To fulfil their boasts, the Executive Team turned to long-time corporate member Macorp who immediately responded with the loan of a Big Cat Excavator. With assistance from Choke Gas Station who provided access to fuel, the Club headed by Head Grounds Superintendent Mike Guyadin, embarked on an ambitious plan to build a dam around the entire grounds and create an intricate drainage and water retention system that would alleviate the flooding that had plagued the course over the years.
With just six months gone by, it would be safe to say – Mission Accomplished! Owing to the efforts and support from Trophy Stall, Vish Trading, Kissoon’s Furniture, Sanjay’s Jewellery, Torginol Paints, El Dorado Rums, Food Town Restaurant, Ganesh Parts, Beharry’s Automotive Yokohama Tires, Shafura Hussain Foundation, BACIF, Grand Coastal Hotel, and Muneshwar’s Travel Service, the Club has hosted 20 golf tournaments to date and has aggressive plans to hold another 26 events before the end of year and it seems that corporate Guyana is in full support of the action as almost every coming weekend will see major tournaments to which all are invited to participate or spectate.
The action continues this weekend as the points race for Club Champion 2018 heats up with Mike Mangal, Patrick Prasad, Paton George, Ravi Persaud, Richard Haniff and others continue to chase the leader, Club President Aleem Hussain.
Scheduled for July, the LGC has major tournaments with Karibee Rice, Oddessy Transports, Crown Mining and Ansa McAl already committed to host their individual tournaments and it is expected that hundreds of fans will be on hand to enjoy these grand tournaments.
The Club is also available for weddings, corporate training/retreats, summer camps for kids and many other activities. Members of the public are encouraged to come out and enjoy the ambiance and tranquillity of the ground along with great food and drinks are available every day of the week.
Guests at the Grand Coastal, Marriott and Pegasus Hotels can avail themselves of special rates that include equipment rental and caddie fees.
