Starting off as early as near 6:30am under bright sunny conditions on Saturday last, some competitors of the nearly 50 registered participants took to the Course, to compete in the annual Trophy Stall Golf Classic, mindful that they would be able to finish play by midday and so still enjoy or participate in Mashramani celebrations, or the Jordi Pinol birthday celebrations that follow at the end of the tournament.
Kevin Dinanauth, who had not played in a tournament since the Guyana Open of November 2018, noted that “I have been practicing once a week, and today I was determined to focus on my game and play well. And because the Course is very encouraging to play, I was able to do well!” Scoring a total of 4 birdies and 6 bogies, he ended the tournament 2 over par, obtaining the Best Gross as well as the Best Net score, and so emerged the Champion of the tournament.
The tournament was played in 3 Flights, prizes being awarded to the first two Net places in each Flight. Prizes were also awarded to the Nearest to The Pin and Longest Drive winners.
In the 22 – 28 Handicap Flight; winners were: Clifford Reis (72/25) – 1st; Jordi Pinol (74/28) – 2nd.
