The Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) Executive Committee presented a Certificate of Honorary Membership to His Excellency, Dr. K. J. Srinivasa, High Commissioner of India, on Wednesday last.
The LGC under the leadership of its current President Aleem Hussain and Executive team have made tremendous efforts to expand the appeal of the game of golf to a wide range of participants and His Excellency Dr. Srinivasa is the latest addition to a long list of dignitaries who are now a part of the club.
Pandit Ravi Persaud, Secretary of the club was amongst the first to welcome the High Commissioner to Guyana and informed him about the benefits of visiting the golf course. The High Commissioner said he was very impressed with the vision of the Club, adding that he and family along with other members of the embassy will get involved in the sport.
“I am very grateful to the Club’s President and Executive for extending this honor to myself and family and we all look forward to be present at the club on a regular basis.”
The High Commissioner went on to say that physical activity is an important part of every one’s life and the tranquility of a golf course would add balance and beauty to those who seek to relax and find peace.
Dr. K.J. Srinivasa assumed his assignment as Consul General of India to Guyana in 2019. He joined the Indian Foreign Service in 2002 and has worked in the Indian Embassy in Madrid (Spain) and Lima (Peru).
Dr. Srinivasa also served as the Regional Passport Officer, Bangalore from September 2010 to April 2013 and was instrumental in the implementation of the Passport Seva Project (PSP). He was Deputy Consul General in the Consulate General of India, San Francisco from April 2013 till July 2016 and then was Consul General in Johannesburg prior to his arrival in Guyana.
During the past two years, the sport of golf has seen a dramatic increase in the number of events, members and activities both on and off the course. Major contributions by Macorp has aided the development of the grounds and allowed more playing days than before.
This year, the LGC will host several special events starting with the Easter Family Gathering where thousands of families will descend upon the grounds for a festival of kite flying. Also plans for the third annual Soca and Wine Festival amongst others are being finalised. Bishop Guy Griffith welcomed the High Commissioner on behalf of the Executive team and members. “We look forward to having you and your family being frequent visitors to our wonderful facility and hope that the ‘golf bug’ makes you a regular participant in our events.” For more information on the LGC, membership, activities or how to learn about the sport, please visit their Facebook page – lusignangolfclub or call 220-5660/645-0944.
